Ditz 0.4 released

Ditz version 0.4 has been released! This release features improved git

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
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
producing world-readable status pages. It currently offers no central
method of bug submission.
