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
   https://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.

Read on to find out 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)


Bugs Tracker
===========

 * Several improvements to the text bug view page
   (e.g. https://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:
   https://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)


Answers
=======

 * Email addresses in questions are no longer visible to anonymous
   users, including search engine spiders.


Translations
============

 * 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)
