Announce: Perlbug(tron) grows Tk interface++

The Perlbug(tron) now has a Tk interface, which supplements 
the existing email, web and command line interfaces nicely.

This enables anyone to browse the db in comparative comfort from 
their very own armchair db => bugmongers heaven.


There are also many other improvements (see the README) in the latest
version, and I've cc'd this mail to a number of people who were at some 
time interested in checking out the Perlbug(tron) for their
own use, or have made a number of suggestions.

It now has most of the features requested, (plus quite a few others):
completely overhauled documentation, patches, tests and notes support, 
feedback to source address, admins, groups for bug modifications, 
and several (email, command-line, tk, web) interfaces, (etc.).

In particular it has gained a fairly plain installation, and a host 
of ever-expanding test routines. A single config file is all you should 
need to change to get it to function.

Comments/suggestions/patches all welcome.

The whole thing goes in on a standard perl install sequence:

	perl Makefile.PL
	make test
	make install

Enjoy | viel spass!
