Bugzilla 4.4rc1, 4.2.4, 4.0.9 and 3.6.12 released
Last night, we released Bugzilla 4.2.4, 4.0.9 and 3.6.12 to fix several security issues. Bugzilla 4.2.4 also notably fixes some crashes with Oracle when viewing buglists. Oracle support in 4.2.4 is definitely much better than in previous 4.x or 3.x releases.
We also released the first release candidate of Bugzilla 4.4, which we expect to release near the end of the year, though it will depend on the feedback we get. If a second release candidate is needed, we will delay 4.4 final. Now is a good time to test its new features, including the new tagging system (which replaces the previous tagging system which you could see in the footer of pages), the ability to save tabular and graphical reports in the same way you can save your searches (no need to bookmark them in your browser anymore), customizable columns displayed in emails sent by the whining system, many new and updated WebService methods, real auto-detection of the MIME type of attachments uploaded to Bugzilla (currently only if the browser is unable to determine the MIME type itself, else we still trust what the browser says), etc… Do not forget to fix your Apache configuration file (httpd.conf) when upgrading as explained in the release notes, else Bugzilla 4.4 won’t work. Have fun!
