The Bug Genie 4.3.0 release notes

All you need to know about the new version
18th February, 2019

The release today marks another step in our continued commitment to releasing the best open source project management, issue tracking and incident handling system available. Version 4.3.0 focuses on the most important and most voted for issues reported in our issue tracker.

In addition to what you can see after upgrading, a lot of work has been done to prepare for an upcoming improvement of the source code integration. The new commenting features are the first visible result of this work, and more will come in the next release(s).
