Today we are releasing 4.4.1, 4.2.7, 4.0.11, and the unstable development snapshot 4.5.1.
Initially, we released new tarballs and diffs for these releases to the download site but found a new bug shortly after. New tarballs and diffs have been uploaded to the site which we recommend everyone update to if you downloaded the first version. To make sure you have the fixed version, md5sum values are provided further down in the announcement.
All of today’s releases contain security fixes. We recommend all Bugzilla administrators to read the Security Advisory linked below.
Bugzilla 4.4.1 is our latest stable release. It contains various useful bug fixes, performance improvements and security fixes for the 4.4 branch.
Bugzilla 4.2.7 and 4.0.11 are security updates for the 4.2 branch and the 4.0 branch, respectively.
Note that 4.5.1 is an unstable development release and should not be used in production environments. We are not yet feature-frozen at this time so the features you see in 4.5.1 might not accurately represent the behavior that 5.0 will have.
Note that when Bugzilla 5.0 is released, the Bugzilla 4.0.x series will reach end of life. If you are using that series, we encourage you to upgrade to 4.4.1 now.
