Today we are releasing Bugzilla 2.18.1, a bug-fix release for the
2.18 series. It contains various useful bug and security fixes for 
the original 2.18 release.

We are also releasing a *very unstable* development snapshot, 2.19.3,
for those who want to track the bleeding edge of Bugzilla development. 
We expect our next development release after this to be Release 
Candidate 1 (2.20rc1).

Finally, there is a security-fix release for the old 2.16 series,
version 2.16.9. Users of 2.16 are still encouraged to ugprade to 2.18 as
soon as it is possible.

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.
