Launchpad 2.1.11: OpenID and now easier to contact other people
 
The Launchpad team is proud to announce the release of Launchpad
2.1.11, which includes two major new features!


OpenID: log into other websites using your Launchpad identity
--------------------------------------------------------------

How many website usernames and passwords do you juggle each day?
Your Launchpad account now includes an OpenID identity, meaning
you may be able to reduce the number of website login details
you need to remember.

OpenID is an open standard that lets you use one online identity
to access many different websites, such as SourceForge, Blogger,
LiveJournal and thousands of others. Look out for the OpenID
logo next time you log into or register for a website.

You can see the logo and find out more about how OpenID works on
our help page:

https://help.launchpad.net/YourAccount/OpenID


Get in touch with any other Launchpad user
-------------------------------------------

Ever wanted to contact someone you've come across in Launchpad
only to find they've hidden their email address?

Launchpad developer, Barry Warsaw, has the solution:

You can now email up to three other Launchpad users or teams
per day using the new "Contact this user/team" link on profile
pages.

Launchpad preserves the privacy of the recipient's email
address -- unless they respond, when it becomes a normal email
conversation -- and you can choose which of your registered
email addresses the message comes from.

To give it a go, try it on your own profile page:

https://launchpad.net/people/+me

For more about contacting people in Launchpad and receiving email
that's sent using the contact form, take a look here:

That's all for this month
--------------------------

Launchpad 2.1.12, our final release of 2008, will be out on the
17th of December.
