    Phoronix: Bugzilla 5.0 Is Coming Soon With New Features

    Bugzilla 5.0 is gearing up for a release in the next few weeks and with this big version bump will come a number of new features to this popular open-source bug tracking software...

    There is also my fork of Bugzilla with a lot of new features, Bugzilla4Intranet. We use it in our company for ~5 years.

    https://github.com/vitalif/bugzilla-4intranet

    Feature list: https://github.com/vitalif/bugzilla-...beta/CHANGELOG

    I've never made public releases yet, but you can try it out from the 'beta' branch (all listed features except separate localisation layer which is still in 'i18n' branch).

    Please note that DB is dramatically refactored in my fork (original has an idiotic structure: integer primary keys have different types (i.e. some are smallint, some mediumint, some normal int), and select fields are stored as values, not as IDs..). So Bugzilla 4.4 DB can be upgraded to Bugzilla4Intranet with usual ./checksetup.pl, but NOT back. Make a backup if you try bugzilla4intranet.

      Interesting. I noticed Gravatar is mentioned in the features list. I hope it is optional (and off by default)? Last thing I want is to be tracked by advertisers on a private bugtracker (or anywhere)...

        Is there anything being done about the email address being public, or is this just fundamentally unfixable? I really hate having a secondary address just to avoid spam, and then missing bugzilla notifications because of it.

          This is good news for Bugzilla.

          But, sadly the winner of the "Make Bugzilla Pretty" won't see his layout and theme in the 5.0 milestone.

          https://bugzillaupdate.wordpress.com...retty-contest/

          The bug tracking that work ended up getting closed WONTFIX.

          https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=662605

          Hopefully someone will pickup the torch now that the pages have been made HTML5 compliant and the project uses git. Bugzilla desperately needs a makeover, in particular in the "dashboard" area. Competition from the likes GitHub, JIRA, Trello, etc in the area of issue tracker management will hopefully light a fire under Bugzilla to get moving on this!

          BTW, there are a couple other small but nice changes in 5.0:

          - Bugs: There is now a "Preview" mode when creating a new comment that allows you to see how the comment will look before committing to the database.
          - Searches: Some useful searches have been added to the Bugzilla home page.

            Of course it's optional, and you can specify your own avatar service URL, this is how I've implemented avatars in our corporate bugtracker :-)

              "Preview" mode is in Bugzilla4Intranet since, I think, 2011...

              About the "make it pretty": in the latest version of my fork I use "Mozilla" skin by default (like http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ with some css fixes) :-)

              + Interesting info about the "contest", I didn't know about it, thanks...

                Email addresses are hidden in bugzilla for anonymous users, but shown for anyone who is authorized. Does that mean 'public' for you?

                  If you can't use your email because it gets spammed you really need a better spam filter.
