   We are releasing two versions of Bugzilla today, 3.4rc1 and 3.2.4.

   Bugzilla 3.4rc1 is our first Release Candiate for Bugzilla 3.4. This
release has received QA testing, and should be considerably more stable
than the development releases before it. It is still not considered
fully stable, and so you should understand that if you use it, you use
it at your own risk. However, it should be fine for smaller or
non-critical production installations.

   If feedback from this release candidate indicates that it is mostly
stable, then Bugzilla 3.4 will be released in a few weeks. If feedback
indicates that more extensive fixes are needed, there may be another
release candidate after this one.

   Bugzilla 3.2.4 is the latest update in the 3.2 stable series. It
contains various useful bug fixes.

   Both of today's releases contain a security fix. Please see our
latest Security Advisory for details.

   Bugzilla is a "Defect Tracking System" or "Bug-Tracking System."
Defect Tracking Systems allow individuals or groups of developers
to keep track of outstanding bugs in their product effectively.
