I am pleased to announce the release of

   CMFCollectorNG 0.20 Beta 3 (release candidate for 0.20)

CMFCollectorNG is a Zope/CMF-based bugtracking system (based on

Major features of CMFCollectorNG:

    * major code cleanup and complete new skins
    * very generic to add new ticket properties to a tracker
    * enhanced tracker configuration through the web
    * extend usage of the CMF memberdata tool to store user informations 
and user preferences
    * rewritten transcript to keep issue related informations in an 
abstract format
      to produce different output (HTML, plain text for email notifications)
    * tickets can have references to other tickets (also across 
CMFCollectorNG instances)
    * dedicated views for uploaded files and references to other tickets
    * better roles management:
          o TrackerAdmins manage the tracker
          o Supporters can file tickets, create followups, upload files,
            add references to other tickets
          o Reporters can file new tickets and upload files and references
    * XML export (to be used with XMLRPC)
    * watchlist/monitoring functionality
    * Plone compatibility
    * much more minor improvements (too much to mention them :-) )

Changes since 0.20 beta 2:

    * lots of minor bugfixes
    * some more i18n fixes
    * add getId as index/metadata to collector_catalog to workaround
      an incompatibility between CMF 1.3 and latest CMF CVS


 Existing installations of CMFCollectorNG are encouraged to step through
 the migration process:
