[ANN] Release of Bugzilla 4.3.1, 4.2.1, 4.0.6, and 3.6.9

Dave Lawrence
   Today we are releasing 4.2.1, 4.0.6, 3.6.9, and the unstable
development snapshot 4.3.1.

   All of today's releases contain security fixes. We recommend
all Bugzilla administrators to read the Security Advisory linked below.

   Bugzilla 4.2.1 is our latest stable release. It contains various
useful bug fixes, performance improvements and security fixes for
the 4.2 branch.

   Bugzilla 4.0.6 and 3.6.9 are security updates for the 4.0
branch and the 3.6 branch, respectively.

   Note that 4.3.1 is an unstable development release and should not
be used in production environments. We are not yet feature-frozen at
this time so the features you see in 4.3.1 might not accurately
represent the behavior that 4.4 will have.

   Note that when Bugzilla 4.4 is released (likely later this year),
the Bugzilla 3.6.x series will reach end of life. If you are using that
series, we encourage you to upgrade to 4.2.1 now.

About Bugzilla
--------------
   Bugzilla is a "Defect Tracking System" or "Bug-Tracking System."
Defect Tracking Systems allow individuals or groups of developers
to keep track of outstanding bugs in their product effectively.
Most commercial defect-tracking software vendors charge enormous
licensing fees. Despite being "free", Bugzilla has many features
its expensive counterparts lack. Consequently, Bugzilla has quickly
become a favorite of thousands of organizations across the globe, and
is widely regarded as one of the top defect-tracking systems available.

   See http://www.bugzilla.org/about/ for more details.

Thanks David...

Are there any documents about 4.3 yet?

I would like to know what changes we can expected in the next major release.

Cheers,

We will write the release notes when 4.4rc1 is out (i.e. in several
months). But I'm going to blog about new features in 4.3.1 in a moment.
