Launchpad 1.1.11 released!

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
  • 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)

Code Hosting

  • 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)

Bug Tracker

  • Several improvements to the text bug view page (e.g. 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: (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)

    I would like to have more options for PPA in archive, like to remove a package, click on the package and see the builds of it, like we have in source.

    I also like to receive a message after all builds of a package to know where it fails and to click in the URL to the build log of which arch, and in that package have the apt:// to install the deb if we want.

    I don’t know if these features are already reported or in TODO list, but PPA needs some features.

    Sounds good. That is so good to use translation!

    Do you mean deployed or released?

    I’m honestly confused.
