          Release Notes: This release is mostly bugfixes and UI cleanups. The template markup was changed to use the standard Smarty { and }. A Smarty function to add field validation was implemented and added for certain fields. The only new feature is the completion of lost password support. This will require a small schema change.

            Very nice effort, but not production level yet
            This is a very nice effort at implementing bugzilla in php rather than perl. The interface has been designed to look and feel exactly like bugzilla (except it includes the picture of a cute dog rather than an ant). Unfortunately the 1.0 release dosen't seem to be quite ready for prime time yet. Keep in mind that this project heavily depends on Smarty ( which is very easy to install and configure (don't forget to edit you php.ini).
            During my tests I found out that when logged in as an admin user, there were refrences to php files that were not included with the 1.0 release (queryhelp.php), also clicking on components to customize it gave me an error:
            "There has been a database error (DB Error: no such field): Select id, product, description from products ".

            The homepage lacks any useful links (we'll there is only one smarty)... =(

            Definitly a project worth keeping an eye on but not ready for prime time.
