Java News from Monday, December 1, 2008

The Mozilla Project has released Bugzilla 3.2, the open source bug tracking system we all despise, but this release is supposed to have a much improved UI. In particular, "Bugzilla 3.2 has had some UI assistance from the NASA Human-Computer Interaction department and the new Bugzilla User Interface Team. In particular, you will notice a massively redesigned bug editing form, in addition to our new skin." New features include Custom Status Workflow, Custom Field Types, improved UTF-8 support, and experimental support for Oracle as a backend (but really, isn't that just pouring salt in an already open wound? Bugzilla alone satisfies my masochism quotient for the year without rubbing Oracle into the mix.)
