The AutoPPA team is proud to announce AutoPPA 0.0.6!

The new release includes a number of new features:

 * New autoppa-switch tool
 * New version string format
 * New Ubuntu packages

Read on for more...

New autoppa-switch tool

A new autoppa-switch tool allows for easy ad-hoc switching of the
version and release in a working tree. It generates content from
templates and processes files with special AutoPPA symbols. It's
helpful when debugging build problems or fixing release-specific

New version string format

The version strings generated by AutoPPA now use the numeric Ubuntu
version instead of the code name. A version string previously
generated as supertool_1.3.11-dapper1-upside1 will now be generated
as supertool_1.3.11-upside1.6.06. The reason for making this change
is that code names are only technically valid during development.
Once and Ubuntu release is made it is officially referred to by it's

 * The version strings generated by AutoPPA now use the numeric
   Ubuntu version instead of the code name. A version string
   previously generated as supertool_1.3.11-dapper1-upside1 will
   now be generated as supertool_1.3.11-upside1.6.06.
 * When the EDITOR environment variable is undefined, AutoPPA will
   use the VISUAL environment variable to determine which editor to
   use (Jelmer Vernooij <email address hidden>).
 * Files modified with generated content from .autoppa templates or
   that have magic AUTOPPA_VERSION() symbols are reverted before
   changes are committed. This makes it possible to, for example,
   have a default debian/control file that isn't modified after a

Bug fixes:

 * Added missing python-pexpect package dependency.
 * Files with a ~ in their name are correctly removed during
