A quick note to let you know that starting with Bugzilla 4.5.2, which should be released soon (a few weeks at most), it now uses the HTML5 doctype instead of the HTML 4.01 Transitional one. This means that cool new features from HTML5 can now be implemented in the coming Bugzilla 5.0. A lot of […]

You may wonder what’s going on since we released Bugzilla 4.4rc1 on November 13. Well, very few bugs have been reported which seems to indicate that 4.4rc1 is pretty stable.
