Deskzilla 1.5, the next version of our desktop client for Bugzilla bug tracking system, has been released today.
Major news in this release are support for custom fields, which have been introduced in Bugzilla 3.0, and support for private comments. You can now work with custom fields as easily as with other fields, including searching and viewing distribution by drop-down field values.
A totally new feature, which has been suggested on our forum, is Reorder by Field. It lets you arrange issues in a certain order, for example, in order these issues should be addressed. You use drag-and-drop or buttons to move issues in a list, and Deskzilla automatically updates a custom field that's been designated by you to hold numeric sorting value. Because custom fields are used for reordering, this feature requires Bugzilla 3.0.
Starting with this version, collections have been renamed to tags, and several features have been added to boost tags usefulness. Now you can add search criteria based on issue's tags, and add/remove tags using a single Tag action.
This release has 34 other improvements and bug fixes. Upgrade is recommended for all users. Please backup your workspace before the upgrade. After upgrading, please run synchronization to download additional information from Bugzilla (use menu File-Download Changes).
