  Today we have four new releases. One new development snapshot
(3.7.3), one new stable release (3.6.2) and two security updates
for the old stable releases (3.4.8 and 3.2.8).

  Bugzilla 3.6.2 is our latest stable release. It contains various
useful bug fixes and security improvements for the 3.6 branch.

  Bugzilla 3.4.8 and 3.2.8 are security updates for the 3.4
branch and the 3.2 branch, respectively.

  Bugzilla 3.7.3 is our third unstable development release leading to
Bugzilla 4.0. We have done a fair amount of QA on this release.
However, QA found many bugs that have not yet been fixed, so this
release should not be used in production environments. Development
releases exist as previews of the features that a future release of
Bugzilla will contain. They also exist for testing purposes, to collect
bug reports and feedback. So, if you find a bug in this development
release (or you don't like how some feature works) please tell us.
