A forum for technical support discussion related to Fogbugz.
I posted about this in the FogBugz blog at http://www.fogcreek.com/FogBugz/blog/post/FogBugz-6-for-UnixMac-Beta-signup.aspx but we are now accepting signups for beta testing FogBugz 6 for Unix and Mac over at https://shop.fogcreek.com/beta/?prod=1 - soon the other platforms will get a chance to use all the features we've been taunting them with for the past few months.
If you're on Windows, please sign up as well - we need to ensure that we didn't break anything while porting the code over to PHP.
Great news, hope we will get the final release soon.
But i have one question. If you have a common language for all, windows/unix/mac (the wasabi) why don't you just compile during development of a new release a daily for all platforms and keep all synchronized even from development stage. I think having this implemented would have shorter your work a lot and also would have reduce the frustration of unix/mac clients which are waiting to grab the release 4 months after windows release.

That was the original plan, of course. But this was the first major release using Wasabi, and there were inevitable issues in tweaking it to generate PHP that would work on all of the linux distributions, and with different versions of PHP and MySQL. We ended up needing all of our development resources to get the Windows version released in time for the World Tour, and so didn't have anybody available to keep the PHP builds working and up-to-date.
Our betas historically run about 10 weeks.
