Bugzilla’s got Skins!

I like what I see in Bugzilla 3.2. I will itemize the things I find interesting.

Skins:
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.)

Custom fields:
Now with multi-line fields, multiple-selection boxes, and date/time fields.

Oracle support:
– 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.”

Authentication:
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.
