Having moved our case tracking system to Fogbugz on-demand, one of our favorite features is its reporting function. You can see the current activity of Movable Type development with a variety of graphs and charts. I would like to introduce some of the highlights here.
Number of fixed and implemented cases
The following graph shows numbers of fixed bugs and implemented features since 2007 when we started to use Fogbugz. As you can see, it is more active than ever.
I should also mention that this achievement includes a lot of contributions from the community which is also shown in the long list of the acknowledgments in 5.1 release notes.
Number of open cases
You might wonder how the submitted cases are handled. The development team is reviewing new cases on every Thursday. And periodically we conduct "a big triage" to sweep remaining cases. The following graph shows the improvement in our product management.
Now all the feature request cases have been reviewed and categorized in this product backlog page.
