Roadmap for Bugzilla 4.0

Frédéric Buclin
Hi all,

The roadmap for Bugzilla 4.0 has been validated earlier today during our
Bugzilla meeting. You can see the result here:

http://wiki.mozilla.org/Bugzilla:Roadmap#The_Roadmap

The freezing date for 4.0 is January 11, 2009.

Those of you who upgrade their installation using CVS will now see
Bugzilla 3.3 as the new dev version (trunk). It will become 4.0 when
it's ready.

Why the version number? By looking at the road map, my impression is
that this will be more of a minor than a major release?

        Compared to 3.0, it'll be pretty major! :-) Also, a lot of
those features are pretty big.

Ok, understood. But from what I can tell, the changes are mainly
"underground" and not on the UI level. I suppose that users would
expect more when reading the version number.

        I think there will be enough UI changes that people will
notice. There will be some UI stuff that isn't mentioned in the
roadmap, too, like the "simple bug entry" page.

I think it's wrong to look at UI changes to say it worths a major
revision number or not. More important is what Bugzilla can do, not how
many CSS changes we made between 3.0 and 4.0.

For 3.2 we completely re-did editbugs (which is a minor change for a
major UI change), one of the most used pages in Bugzilla. In the next
version we're going to redo the homepage and parts of the advanced
search page (ajaxy narrowing), possible the search results page, and
streamlining the new page/edit page.

There are also a few smaller UI tweaks such as the saved searches,
Graphic reports widget, Admin links etc.

But lastly I totally agree with LpSolit, a totally new UI isn't
necessary for a version change, see Adobe products and microsoft
products.

And lastly, if you've got any UI changes that you'd like to see let me
know, I'm pretty sure a useful homepage and AJAX/YUI throughout
Bugzilla will get many of the UI changes you are looking for.
