The Bugzilla Project is proud to announce the first Release Candidate
of Bugzilla 2.20, a major new feature release for Bugzilla. Bugzilla
2.20 includes support for PostgreSQL, a new "Large Attachment" storage
mechanism, a new level of bug classification, user-defined periodic 
reminders by email, and many other new features.

Bugzilla 2.20rc1 is recommended to be used for testing purposes only.
The final release will be shaped by your feedback over the next few

We are also releasing a bug-fix release for the 2.18 series, 2.18.2.
The 2.18 series is recommended for users in production environments.
All users of the 2.18 series are recommended to upgrade to 2.18.2 as
soon as possible.

We would also like to remind users of the 2.16 series that we expect
to stop maintenance on 2.16 around October 2005, so they should plan
to upgrade to 2.18 or 2.20 before then.

About Bugzilla

Bugzilla is a "Defect Tracking System" or "Bug-Tracking System."
Defect Tracking Systems allow individual 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 hundreds of organizations across the globe, and 
is widely regarded as one of the top defect-tracking systems available.
