Traq was started by Jack P. in late 2008 as a fast and easy to use project management and issue tracking system
It is an open-source, PHP powered project management and issue tracking system capable of handling multiple projects with per-project permissions, milestones, custom fields, email notifications and much more.
The first version of Traq, v0.1, was released in February 2009 and quickly saw adoption. Since then, the community and contributors have requested many features that have greatly improved Traq.
Traq has remained under active development since the first release in 2008 and will continue to be.
There is a "Lite" version of Traq currently in development that is aimed at PHP 5.4 and MySQL.
