Release of Bugzilla 3.6!

Today the Bugzilla Project is proud to announce the release of the next major version of Bugzilla: 3.6! Bugzilla 3.6 has a lot of exciting new features for Bugzilla users and administrators, including migration from other bug-tracking systems, a simple “Browse” interface for browsing open bugs in a system, and some usability
improvements resulting from a scientific usability study conducted on Bugzilla.

One of the most exciting new features of Bugzilla 3.6 is Extensions. These are self-contained files that you can “drop in” to a Bugzilla installation to add new features or change Bugzilla’s behavior, without modifying any existing code! Anybody can write and distribute their own Extension–Bugzilla 3.6 includes very detailed documentation on how to write and distribute Extensions, and even includes a script that will set up the framework of a new Extension for you so that you can get right to coding.

With the release of Bugzilla 3.6, the Bugzilla 3.0.x series has reached End Of Life. This means that there will be no new releases in the 3.0.x series, even if serious security issues are discovered in 3.0.x. Bugzilla 3.0.11 is the last Bugzilla 3.0.x version that will be released. We strongly recommend that any Bugzilla installation still running Bugzilla 3.0.x promptly upgrade to Bugzilla 3.6.
