Additional Personal Package Archives

You can now create multiple PPAs both for yourself and your teams.

This is ideal if you're publishing different versions of the same
application to different audiences. For example: you may have one
archive for alpha versions and another that's used by your beta testers.

Visit your profile page -- or that of one of your teams -- to add more

See Julian's blog post for further details:

Translation template imports from Bazaar branches

Host your project's code using Launchpad and Bazaar? Also translate your
software using Launchpad?

Launchpad can now automatically find and import your translation
templates from your project's Bazaar branches.

Once you've activated automatic imports, Launchpad will monitor the
official branch for each of your series and pull in any new template
versions that you commit.
