Launchpad 2.2.2: easier upstream bug linking

The Launchpad team is proud to announce the release of Launchpad 2.2.2! Let’s look at what’s new this month.

Now easier to add upstream links to bug reports

If you’re using Launchpad to track a bug that you think may also be reported elsewhere — such as in a project’s Bugzilla — it’s now easier to find that bug report.

Launchpad developer Graham Binns explains:

Launchpad will now give you direct links to the bug search and filing forms in a project’s external tracker, so long as Launchpad knows the tracker’s location.

To find the links, all you have to do is click “Also affects project” on the bug report and select the project you want to link to.

There’s more in Graham’s blog post.

Also in Launchpad 2.2.2

February saw the Launchpad team dedicate a week to tackling slower-loading pages. Read our write-up of what happened in Launchpad Performance Week.

You can find full details of Launchpad 2.2.2 on its milestone page.

If you come across a bug, please report it!

See you next month!

We’ll be releasing Launchpad 2.2.3 at the start of April. In the mean time, stay up to date with Launchpad news and views right here on our blog.

And as always, you can join us in #launchpad on Freenode and on the launchpad-users mailing list.
