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 1.3 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
