I'm pleased to announce the public release of RT 3.2.0.  RT 3.2 represents
over 15 months of new development and includes a number of new
features and improvements, as well as streamlined installation and
upgrade procedures. 

This version of RT features a major overhaul to RT's searching system,
including support for saved searches, direct download of search results
to Microsoft Excel and a powerful new query builder.  You can find a
brief summary of many of the major changes since RT 3.0 at the end of
this announcement.

We always look forward to hearing your feedback about this or any release 
on the rt-users mailing list. (http://lists.bestpractical.com/lists/rt-users)
