What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· The tagging system has been redesigned: the old tagging fields in the page footer are gone in favor of a Tags field in the bug itself. Tags remain private and are only visible by you. They can also be used in queries as any other field.
· Bugzilla can now correctly identify uploaded attachments which have a MIME type of application/octet-stream.
· You can now save tabular and graphical reports as you already do with saved searches. Previously, you had to bookmark them in your web browser.
· You can customize columns displayed in whinemails.
· As usual, the WebServices have been improved with several new methods.
· The security has been improved, such as using HMAC SHA-256 to generate tokens instead of MD5.
