access to certain types of data.

log in using SAML.
The addition of some of the Bayoteers extensions allowing features such
as inline editing of bugs in search results, team management and scrum
Ye Olde diff viewer has been replaced with the modern diff2html diff
Improved, updated documentation including a rewrite using the
reStructuredText format, which allows documentation to be more easily
converted into different formats such as HTML and PDF, etc
