The third alpha of Mantis 1.1, a free-as-in-speech (GPL) bug tracking system based on PHP and MySQL, has been posted. According to Victor Boctor, "This alpha release includes about 50 enhancements and bug fixes. One of the major highlights of this release is the time tracking feature. There is also enhanced management for custom fields, support for URL to express filter criteria, and many others. Similar to 1.1.0a2, the upgrade path to non-English installations is not yet implemented, hence, this alpha release SHOULD ONLY BE USED FOR ENGLISH installations. This release implements database schema changes and hence the install script will need to be run."
