Loggerhead 1.18.1 released

Written for loggerhead by William Grant on 2011-03-24

Loggerhead 1.18.1 brings security and stability fixes. Filenames are now correctly escaped in revision views, removing a cross-site scripting vector (CVE-2011-0728). A crash in start-loggerhead when log rotation was enabled has also been fixed.

We strongly recommend that all users upgrade to 1.18.1 due to the included security fix.

Loggerhead 1.18 released

Written for loggerhead by Max Kanat-Alexander on 2010-11-11

Loggerhead 1.18 brings many stability fixes, more configuration options, and some performance improvements for high-load environments. Loggerhead can now run under mod_wsgi, FastCGI, and SCGI environments. This release also should be compatible with versions of bzr up to 2.3.

 We strongly recommend that any installation currently running 1.17 or earlier upgrade to 1.18 with bzr 2.1 or later, as earlier combinations of bzr and loggerhead tended to have significant stability issues.

You can download 1.18 at: https://launchpad.net/loggerhead/+download

Launchpad 10.01: bug heat

Written for Launchpad Suite by Matthew Revell on 2010-01-28

The Launchpad team is proud to announce Launchpad 10.01, released on
January 27th 2010!

Highlights this month include:

 * Bug heat: a new estimate of each bug's likely impact.
 * Improved patch handling on bug reports.
 * Anonymous read-only access to the Launchpad web service API.

Let's take a look in detail.

Bug heat
---------

You can get extra help in judging a bug's significance by using Launchpad's
new bug heat measure.

In the top-right of bug pages, and in a new column on bug listings, you'll see
four flame icons. The more of those flames are lit, the "hotter" the bug is.

Launchpad measures a bug's heat depending on how many people are subscribed,
whether it’s a security issue, how many people have marked the bug as
affecting them, and so on.

Here are Ubuntu's bugs, sorted by bug heat:

And here's a bug report that has all four flames lit:

For the detail of how Launchpad calculates bug heat, see our development wiki:

  https://dev.launchpad.net/Bugs/BugHeat#Algorithm

New bug patch notifications and icons
--------------------------------------

In bug listings, there's a new sticking plaster icon that shows you which bugs
have a patch attached.

Also, Launchpad will now email you when someone attaches a patch to a bug to
which you're subscribed.

Anonymous web service API access
---------------------------------

Leonard blogs that:

  Your launchpadlib scripts can now get read-only access to the Launchpad web
  service API without going through any authorization process. Previously,
  to authorize your script, you had to open a web page in the end-user's web
  browser and get the user to click a button. Now, you only have to go through
  that process if you want to access someone's private data or modify the
  Launchpad dataset on their behalf.

We're now using a new numbering scheme for Launchpad's releases. We've chosen
something similar to the Ubuntu style, whereby our release numbers start with
the year, followed by the number of releases so far in that year.

Launchpad 10.02 is due on the 3rd of March 2010.

You can see our full release calendar here:

Launchpad 3.1.12

Written for Launchpad Suite by Matthew Revell on 2009-12-17

The Launchpad team is proud to announce Launchpad 3.1.12, released on
December 16th 2009!

Let's take a look at what's new in this release.

Patches now highlighted on bug report pages
--------------------------------------------

Now you can easily see all the patches attached to a bug, separately
from other types of attachment.

When you attach a patch to a bug, Launchpad gives it a new patch icon
and there's also a separate sidebar box that lists all patches attached
to the bug.

Take a look at Deryck's blog post for more:

  http://blog.launchpad.net/bug-tracking/better-patch-tracking-and-more

Now see how many people have clicked "This bug affects me"
-----------------------------------------------------------

For a while now, you've been able to register that a bug report affects
you, by following a link on the bug report page.

Now you can use that data! Bug report pages now show you how many people
have stated that the bug affects them.

And as before, when you're searching for bugs, you can sort the results
by the number of people affected.

Community contributions
------------------------

Luke Farone whose code landed in Launchpad during the 3.1.12 cycle.
