Where have you been looking?

Two and a half months. Hardly inactive. They are an effort to put together, so we usually only do one at release time.

For details of activity, check the support newsgroup: <news://news.mozilla.org/n…e.public.mozilla.webtools> , which has traffic of about 20 messages a day, and the developers mailing list <http://bugzilla.org/cgi-b…full&extra=developers> which has about half that.

But the major obvious sign of healthy continuing development is the large number of bugs fixed and features landed recently. Checkins in the last month: <http://bonsai.mozilla.org…e=&cvsroot=%2Fcvsroot>

Bugs fixed in the last month: <http://bugzilla.mozilla.o…-0-0=noop&value0-0-0=>

The feature you mention, and many others, are in the latest development version, 2.17.3. It's not currently appropriate to release a stable version, as Bugzilla is going through a lot of changes (healthy development :-). Among the patches waiting on the sidelines are a complete rewrite of the charting-over-time engine and pluggable authentication.

So development is chugging along nicely, thanks :-)
