Ditz version 0.4 has been released!

* <http://ditz.rubyforge.org>

Ditz is a simple, light-weight distributed issue tracker designed to work with
distributed version control systems like git, darcs, Mercurial, and Bazaar. It
can also be used with centralized systems like SVN.

Ditz maintains an issue database directory on disk, with files written in a
line-based and human-editable format. This directory can be kept under version
control, alongside project code.

Ditz provides a simple, console-based interface for creating and updating the
issue database file, and some rudimentary HTML generation capabilities for
producing world-readable status pages. It currently offers no central public
method of bug submission.
