Bugzilla 4.1.3, 4.0.2, 3.6.6 and 3.4.12 released
More than 3 months after our last releases, we finally released Bugzilla 4.1.3, 4.0.2, 3.6.6 and 3.4.12 last night. Bugzilla 3.6.6 and 3.4.12 are security releases for our old supported branches. Bugzilla 4.0.2 contains security fixes and several useful bug fixes, including:
- The Bug.create() WebService method now throws an error if you pass a group name which doesn’t exist. In Bugzilla 4.0 and 4.0.1, this group name was silently ignored, leaving your bug unsecure if no other group applied.
- Moving several bugs at once into another product works again. In Bugzilla 4.0 and 4.0.1, it displayed the same confirmation page again and again, and changes were never committed.
- Marking a bug as a duplicate now works in Internet Explorer 9.
- The XML-RPC interface now works with SOAP::Lite 0.711 and 0.712 under mod_perl.
- and much more!
I strongly recommend to upgrade to 4.0.2, which is much more stable and usable than 4.0 or 4.0.1!
And for those who love to live dangerously, we also released Bugzilla 4.1.3, our lastest development snapshot. It contains all the security and bug fixes mentioned above. As we don’t accept any new features for Bugzilla 4.2 since we released 4.1.2, we focused on fixing regressions and other nasty bugs. Bugzilla 4.1.3 should be much more usable than 4.1.2, even if it’s not production-quality yet. Depending on how things go and the feedback we get, this could be the last development snapshot before 4.2rc1. Note that once Bugzilla 4.2 is released (probably near the end of this year), Bugzilla 3.4 will reach End Of Life and we won’t support this branch anymore.
