View as plain text  

Eventum is a user-friendly and flexible issue tracking system that can
be used by a support department to track incoming technical support
requests, or by a software development team to quickly organize tasks
and bugs. Eventum is used by the MySQL AB Technical Support team, and
has allowed us to dramatically improve our response times.

I'm proud to announce that Eventum 1.6.0 is now available for download
in source form from our download pages at and mirror sites.

Note that not all mirror sites may be up to date at this point in time -
if you can't find this version on some mirror, please try again later or
choose another download site.

Please refer to the UPGRADE file for instructions on how to upgrade your
existing Eventum installation. Read the INSTALL file for instructions on
installing Eventum for the first time.

We would like to thank James Bercegay for notifying us of a few security
problems in previous versions of Eventum. All users are recommended to
upgrade as soon as possible.
