Today we are glad to announce public availability of the first beta version of Deskzilla 2.0. The highlights of the new version are: time tracking, support for Bugzilla 3.4 and user interface improvements.
With time tracking feature, Deskzilla is able to track time that you spend working on bugs and post it as "Hours Worked" to Bugzilla. To start using time tracking, select a bug you're currently working on and use Right Click | Work on Bug. Select other bugs, start, pause, stop time tracking and use Time | Edit and Publish Time menu to review and post tracked time, adjusting Hours Worked and Hours Left.
This version adds support for the new features introduced in Bugzilla 3.4, including custom fields that depend on other fields, "See Also" field and "Bug ID" custom field type.
Deskzilla user interface has been improved in this version. The main window has been rearranged — most of the buttons from the toolbar on the top have been moved to issue details view and issue list header. Deskzilla for Mac OS X has undergone some face-lifting and shortcuts for actions have been reviewed.
Deskzilla 2.0 also includes a number of other improvements and fixes (see change log).
To upgrade from a previous version:
Beta version of Deskzilla 2.0 will work with any Deskzilla 1.x license key. However, the Release 2.0 will work only with license keys that have active maintenance subscription (those purchased within one year prior to the date of the release, or with renewed support and maintenance). Anyway, you can freely evaluate the new Deskzilla version for 30 days.
