GNU GNATS 4.0 has been released.  The distribution file
gnats-4.0.tar.gz is available via anonymous FTP from

GNU GNATS is a set of tools for tracking bugs reported by users to a
central site.  It allows problem report management and communication
with users through various means, including e-mail, Web and a network
daemon.  GNATS stores all the information about problem reports in its
databases, consisting of plain text files and it provides tools for
querying, editing and maintaining these databases.

GNU GNATS 4 is almost a full rewrite compared with GNATS 3.  New
features against the last official release, 3.113.1, include:

- Vastly improved customization, allowing sites to customize many
  aspects of GNATS behavior, especially to define custom fields of any
  supported type.

- Improved network daemon: It now allows direct problem report
  submission, it can verify the contents of problem reports before they
  are submitted and it provides more database setup information to the
  remote tools.

- Much more powerful database queries.

- Password encryption.

Changes since the second beta release include:

- Several bug-fixes.

- Improvements to the manual.

- Gnatsweb 4.0 is included.
