Welcome to Launchpad 1.1.11, the penultimate Launchpad release for 2007!
We have two big pieces of news this month!
- Personal Package Archives are now out of beta and available to all Launchpad users and teams. Find out more in our quick-start guide at help.launchpad.net/PPAQuickStart
- Launchpad Translations is now much quicker and rock-solid. Expect exports and imports in half the time and next to no timeouts.
So, what else is new in Launchpad 1.1.11?
Distribution Management and PPA (Soyuz)
- Personal Package Archives are now available to all Launchpad users who have signed the Ubuntu Code of Conduct and imported a GPG key into their Launchpad account.
- Accepting or rejecting packages from the upload queue web interface now sends appropriate emails. (Bug 152400)
- Error messages generated when pushing to a branch using bzr+ssh are now much clearer. (Bug 93606)
- The branch action ‘Register merge proposal’ has been renamed to ‘Propose for merging’ as it makes more sense to the casual user. (Bug 162763)
- Launchpad’s branch mirroring system should now be more reliable. (Bug 121331)
- Several improvements to the text bug view page (e.g. edge.launchpad.net/bugs/1/+text) including the addition of: comments, tags, attachment URLs and the relevant component (for bugs reported against distribution packages). (Bugs 139327, 54333, 139398)
- Launchpad tracks how each bug affects different projects and communities. A text view is now available for each of these instances. For example: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-session/+bug/26419/+text (Bug 130051)
- Email addresses in bug descriptions are no longer visible to anonymous users, including search engine spiders.
- Distribution bug package pages now show the total number of bugs that are open, critical, unassigned and in progress. (Bug 107402)
- Users can now perform advanced searches within textual bug listings (pages ending in +bugs-text) in the same way as they can for graphical bug listings (pages ending in +bugs). (Bug 51836)
- Email addresses in questions are no longer visible to anonymous users, including search engine spiders.
- The speed and reliability of Launchpad Translations should now be significantly improved following a major refactoring. Translations exports and imports are expected to be twice as fast and day to day translations use will be much quicker. (Bug 30602)
