The Bugzilla Team (with egg on our collective faces) has posted Bugzilla
2.17.6, a snapshot of the current development sources from CVS.

We had a small "oops" with the 2.17.5 release, whereas one of the new
features that was introduced also introduced a new security hole.  For the
full details, read the security advisory, which is being mailed separately
to this mailing list.  Note that this affects version 2.17.5 only and the
current stable version 2.16.4 is *not* affected.

Since this is the development branch, there have been other checkins
besides the security fix. For a complete list, visit
http://www.bugzilla.org/changes.html and click the "2.17.5 -> 2.17.6" link.

Most notable is a change to the way saved queries are managed.  Queries are
now saved or deleted from the results page instead of from the query page
itself, greatly simplifying both how you deal with saved queries, and the
UI on the query page itself.  For a demo, you can check out
http://landfill.bugzilla.org/bugzilla-tip/query.cgi .

Bugzilla 2.17.6 is a Development Release and is intended for developers
wishing to base large landings or patches on an official bugzilla.org
release. It should not be used for production purposes, unless you have a
Perl programmer on staff willing to put out any fires that may arise. The
vast majority of sites wanting to test or use Bugzilla in production should
continue to use version 2.16.4.

Bugzilla 2.17.6 can be obtained from http://www.bugzilla.org/download.html .
