It would be nice if there was a setting that could be enabled that would automatically cause a release to become "not assignable" when it's date has passed. Currently, I have to remember to change the setting when the date has passed and I sometimes forget. Cases then get incorrectly assigned to the release when they should not. In general, I love FogBUGZ as it has certainly helped me retain my sanity.
I was just trying out the demo today, and it made me wonder if this feature you are suggesting actually exists. When I was creating a new release, a warning stated most people would not want bugs assigned to a release that had already passed, and it asked to make the release 'assignable' or not. There was no third option for 'assignable until release date', which I thought would be nice (that is, if 'assignable' did not automatically do this, which appears to be the case).
