Today we have two new versions of Bugzilla for you.
Bugzilla 3.2.3 is our latest stable release. It contains various
useful bug fixes and security improvements.
Bugzilla 3.3.4 is an unstable development release. This release has
not received QA testing from the Bugzilla Project, and should not be
used in production environments. If you find a bug in this development
release (or you don't like how some feature works) please tell us by
filing a bug.
Both of today's releases contain a security fix. Please see our
latest Security Advisory for details. Note that older versions of
Bugzilla are also affected by this security issue, but it was not
possible to fix the issue in those releases, so you may want to read
the Advisory even if you are not running a 3.2.x or 3.3.x release, to
see if an upgrade to 3.2.3 is warranted for your older installation.

We recommend that all Bugzilla administrators (and particularly those
upgrading to these releases) read the Security Advisory that we are
sending out along with these releases:

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.
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.
