Just a heads up to anyone thinking about trying to start a blog post series just before summer: not a good idea. Anyways, I’m back with another update on new and upcoming features in 3.3. Many of you may not use the wiki, either because of its limited abilities to format and organize content in it, or just because you use another system for documentation or don’t have wiki content to put in. Fair enough, but in 3.3 a huge push has been made to make it possible and desirable for you to put your documentation and text content in the Bug Genie wiki! How so?, I hear you whisper in the shadows – oh, I’ll tell you.
The 3.2 wiki – while staying compatible with the Mediawiki (Wikipedia) syntax – only contains a minor subset of the full syntax available in Mediawiki installations. The goal with using the Mediawiki syntax is both to make it easy to use the Bug Genie wiki for Mediawiki users and authors, and to not introduce yet another wiki formatting syntax for you to learn. The mediawiki syntax is straight-forward, feature-rich and easy to understand. About time we started supporting more of it!
So, what have the wiki got in store for you for 3.3? Read on!

If you’re not following us on Twitter, Facebook or Google+, you could be excused for not noticing, but we just released the final version 3.2! No more beta, no more release candidate – just the final, real thing.
Get it, here: http://www.thebuggenie.com, and tell us what you think!
Just before we’re about to release our highly anticipated 3.2 version, we found time to do a code-wise small, but impact-wise potentially bigger 3.1.x release. We backported a minor cache fix in our DB layer that may significantly increase the speed for many of you. If you’re experiencing delays (not db index related) or slowdowns, please upgrade to this version (it’s a recommended upgrade anyway) to fix this.
Also in this release is a bugfix for #1419 about non-existing linked articles, a minor bugfix for gmp_val() and a fix for the CLI.

In the first post, we looked out some of the first differences you’ll notice after upgrading to 3.2. This post we’ll look at some of the more functional-related changes we’ve made in 3.2, more specifically how we’ve made managing projects easier, faster and better.

In the middle of the hectic 3.2 release development, we’ve released a bugfix release for 3.1.x. This release only contains a few (quite visible) bugfixes, and is a recommended upgrade if you’re running 3.1.x.
- Fixes an issue where comments did not appear to be added
- Fixes an issue where removed / non-existant project roles caused project editing to fail

We’re closing in fast on the 3.2 release, and I guess many of you wonder what the changes are. While there have been numerous changes “under the hood”, the most noticeable changes will be the visual ones. And obviously, some parts of The Bug Genie have changed a lot more than others! To help guide you through some of the changes, we’ll have a few blog posts with some side-by-side comparisons with 3.1 vs 3.2, where we’ll describe the changes, and some of the reasoning behind it.
Let’s get started!
