A quick note to let you know that Bugzilla 3.3.2, 3.2.1, 3.0.7 and 2.22.7 should be released on Monday (in two days). All security patches have been reviewed, all blockers have been fixed, and release notes are also ready. Those are important security releases, do no miss them!
Un mot rapide pour vous dire que Bugzilla 3.3.2, 3.2.1, 3.0.7 et 2.22.7 devraient sortir lundi dans 2 jours. Tous les patchs de sécurité ont été approuvés, tous les bugs bloquant la sortie ont été résolus, et les notes de mise à jour sont prêtes. Il s’agit de mises à jour de sécurité importantes, alors ne les manquez pas!
Bugzilla 3.3.1 has been released last night and is the first development snapshot of what will become Bugzilla 3.4, whose feature freeze date is January 29, 2009. More important new features are available in the last Status Update: users can choose their timezone to display dates and times (especially in bug comments), several improvements to custom fields, two new WebService functions (Bug.get_history and User.get), there is now an email preference to get bugmail for new bugs, users can re-order columns in buglists, user account passwords are now encrypted using SHA-256 instead of the UNIX crypt() function (passwords longer than 8 characters are now correctly validated!), some parameters considered obsolete have been removed, Bugzilla can now use an asynchronous job queue for sending mail (optional and disabled by default, check your parameters), on midair collisions users can decide to only submit the comment and skip other changes, … and of course code cleanup and improvements (such as decreasing the load on the DB when viewing bugs, refactoring of the product and classification code).
In a couple of days (I hope!) will also be released Bugzilla 3.3.2, 3.2.1, 3.0.7 and 2.22.7 with several security fixes (a last one to fix, and we are ready to go). Stay tuned!
