What is BugLink?
BugLink is a bug tracking system for both the Macintosh and Microsoft
Windows 95/NT. BugLink consists of a central bug database and server
application, and clients which allow software developers and testers
download the bugs they are interested in.
BugLink Solo is a new product developed with the shareware developer
in mind. Featuring the same ease of use as BugLink, BugLink Solo is a
single user product, with the user interface and database engine
integrated into a single application.
