Bugzilla
Bugzilla is server software designed to help you manage software development. Bugzilla is a "Defect Tracking System" or "Bug-Tracking System". Defect Tracking Systems allow individual or groups of developers to keep track of outstanding bugs in their product effectively. Most alternative defect-tracking software vendors charge enormous licensing fees. Despite being "free", Bugzilla has many features its expensive counterparts lack. Consequently, Bugzilla has quickly become a favorite of thousands of organizations across the globe.

2015. Collaboration platform for developers GitLab raises $4M



GitLab, the open source Git-based collaboration platform for developers, today announced that it has raised $4 million in Series A funding. The company, which offers both a free community edition, a free SaaS version and a paid enterprise edition of its service, says it will use the additional funding to accelerate growth and expand its global operations. Git, of course, has become the default way to manage code for many development teams. While GitHub is likely the best-known Git-hosting service, there are a number of competitors in this space — all of which tend to put a slightly different twist (and user interface) on top of what is essentially a hosted version of Git. Atlassian, for example, offers both free and paid Git hosting services. GitLab’s focus on its open source solution sets it apart from some of these competitors.
