I like what I see in Bugzilla 3.2. I will itemize the things I find interesting.
Bugzilla’s got Skins!
Killer improvement for installing Bugzilla:
Now grab all the Perl modules for Bugzilla by running one script “install-module.pl” instead of running CPAN for each one individually and you don’t have to configure CPAN! (I just gotta try this.)
Now with multi-line fields, multiple-selection boxes, and date/time fields.
– It’s an “experimental” feature, but it hooks your mission-critical data into all that sweetness and light and automated offsite backups that Corporate IT provides. “Some features are known to be broken.” Check it out anyway.
Improved UTF-8 support:
Software development teams are now working with other teams around the world. “Bugzilla should now be usable by users in every country with little (or at least much less) customization.”
I didn’t even know it had LDAP authentication, but they’ve improved it, and added Radius support.
Web Service support:
Again, I never needed it, but it’s there. And now with support for “Bug.add_comment”. Looks like a great way to integrate your other tools with it.
