How to get Bugzilla

Bugzilla and all of its source code are available for download below. Bugzilla is licensed under the Mozilla Public License, and is thus both free and open source software.

Be sure to see the Installation and Configuration section of the Bugzilla Guide (there’s also a copy included in the tarball).

If you want to know what’s changed from one version to the next, view the changelogs for Bugzilla (generated directly from the raw bzr checkin messages).

Note for upgraders: You can update to the newest release using the bzr instructions below. This is a good way to update if you’ve made local changes, as bzr will attempt to merge your changes with the current release (although you may have to do some merging yourself if it finds conflicts between what you changed and what we changed). Then, to complete your upgrade, read the “How to Upgrade Bugzilla” section in your release notes.
