Bugzilla 3.2 Support

So, as many of you know, Bugzilla 3.2 RC1 was released this week. Already the questions are beginning to trickle in as to when will Testopia support 3.2. The answer is... soon.

How soon is soon? Well, I will direct you to earlier posts on this blog as well as the project site that mention the amount of work involved in first upgrading our installation of Bugzilla and then making Testopia stable with that and then porting it to a vanilla installation. Coupled with the other duties I have to perform, past upgrades have taken a month or more and I don't expect this one to be much different. Once this happens it takes a few weeks work to get Testopia ported and tested. The problem is that during the merging of the code, I pretty much have to freeze Testopia development until the base is stable. So, I am focusing my attention on getting as many features and bug fixes as I can out of the way before that happens.

I am pushing to have Testopia 2.1 ready for the end of the month.

I realize many of you are itching to upgrade your Bugzilla installations, but for now, Testopia will only work with 3.0 and that will probably be the case for the next couple of months. Hopefully in time for the final release of Bugzilla 3.2.
