feature question: released fix list

Something I saw in another tracking system was a 'Release to public fix list' checkbox.

This enabled you to selectively enable items that would be exported to a text file fix list when you were going to make a release.

For example:

[ ] Post to Fix List
    [ ] [    item title for public list      ]  // if not set, uses
                                                              main item title

    [ ] [  MLE for public description  ]  // if not set, uses
                                                            main description

Then there is a 'create public fix list' button in some administrative area.  You choose the project(s), and either range of build #'s or date range, and voila!  A nicely formatted text file is created that you can include with your build, email to users, etc.

Does fogbugz have anything like this?

Its got my vote, it would save plenty of time.

We've actually "solved" this by using the "Version" field a bit creatively. When a bug/issue should not be shown in the public fixlist (release notes) we add "Internal" to the version.

The fixlist is then created by running a sql-statement against the database from our build system.
