Trac 0.8 'Qualia' Release Notes
Trac 0.8 'Qualia' Released
Nov 17, 2004
Edgewall Software presents, our latest release - Trac 0.8 'Qualia'.
Trac is an enhanced wiki and issue tracking system, integrated with
Subversion, for software development projects. Trac uses a minimalistic
approach to web-based software project management. Our mission is
simple; to help developers write great software while staying out of the
way. Trac should impose as little as possible on a team's established
development process and policies.
Trac allows wiki markup in issue descriptions and commit messages,
creating links and useful structure between bugs, tasks, changesets,
files and wiki pages. A timeline view presents all project events in
chronological order, making tracking progress or getting an overview of
a project easy.
