The Bugzilla Project is proud to announce the release of
Bugzilla 2.20, a major new feature release for Bugzilla.
Bugzilla 2.20 includes support for PostgreSQL, a new "Large

user-defined periodic reminders by email, and many other
major new features. It includes hundreds of bug fixes and
enhancements over Bugzilla 2.18.

Bugzilla 2.20 at:
We are also releasing a security fix for the 2.18 series, 2.18.4.
In addition, we are releasing our first development snapshot of the 2.21
series, 2.21.1. Use it at your own risk -- it has received very little
testing at this point!
Both 2.20 and 2.21.1 also include security fixes, and we encourage all
users of 2.19, 2.20rc1, 2.20rc2, and 2.21 to upgrade to these latest
There is no release on the Bugzilla 2.16 branch, because it was not
affected by any of the security issues.

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.
