New major Bugzilla release on the horizon

Bugzilla 3.0, expected to be released in early April, is sure to be a crowd pleaser with a host of new features our Committers have been requesting. Here are some highlights from the Release Notes:

- Custom Fields. The IP team will appreciate this flexibility on IPZilla, as it runs a vanilla Bugzilla installtion as well.

- Shared Saved Searches.

- Custom Resolutions. No longer limited to fixed, wontfix, worksforme, remind, later and invalid, we'll be able to add RESOLVED/NEVER as Alex dearly loves. Perhaps even RESOLVED/FINALLY and RESOLVED/CANTBEARSED :-) Joking aside, we might want to consider removing LATER and REMIND, as these are arguably not valid resolutions. You can read up and comment on bug 177497.

- Edit Components in your own product. This functionality is available as a separate Committer Tool, but native support within Bugzilla is much better.

- Default CC list for components. Yay.

Those are called 'flags'. We used them in Eclipsezilla for the 2006 converence voting. I liked them. :)
