Today, after many moons of silence, we're proud to announce the first beta of Deskzilla 3.0, our new major version. Let's look at what makes it worth trying.
This version has been tested against the brand-new Bugzilla 4.0, and all the discovered incompatibilities have been fixed. The new default workflow is also fully supported. So if you are upgrading your Bugzilla installation, please upgrade Deskzilla as well; earlier versions will not work properly with Bugzilla 4.0.
There are plenty of them to try out:
Here are a few highlights:
Indeed, there are too many of them to list; you can scan through the change log for details.
Significant parts of Deskzilla have been rewritten from scratch for this release. Deskzilla 3.0 uses a new local database facility backed by SQLite. This is a big step in improving performance, as it removes the limit on the number of bugs that you can store effectively in your workspace.
We release only Deskzilla Pro this time, but you don't have to worry about licensing. This beta version is shipped with a fully functional Early Access Program (EAP) license, valid until July 1, 2011.
The new local database format makes the upgrade procedure somewhat longer, though we've tried to keep it simple.
