Default Launchpad 1.2.5: code branch reviews and translations search

The Launchpad team is proud to announce the 29th May 2008 release of
Launchpad 1.2.5!

New features in this release include:

* voting and commenting on code branch mergers
* new Launchpad-wide search
* and translations search!

Read on for more about what's new and how it affects you.


Vote and comment on proposed branch mergers
--------------------------------------------

Launchpad's merge proposals are a great way for project contributors
to get their code considered for inclusion in the main line.

Now, branch owners - and anyone else who's interested - can vote and
comment on merge proposals.

Aaron Bentley, who's been working on the feature, says:

These changes make it easy to discuss and tweak proposed changes to a
branch. You can browse the branch which contains the changes then
comment and vote directly on what you've seen.

Comments build into a threaded conversation about the branch. You can
also vote either on the branch as whole, or use custom tags to apply
your vote to a specific aspect of the work.

Take a look at one of the first branch merger comments here:

This is just the start for this feature. Keep an eye on future
Launchpad releases!


Launchpad-wide search
----------------------

Want to find something in Launchpad quickly? Our new site-wide search
looks for results right across Launchpad - in bug reports, branch
descriptions, people, teams, projects, blueprints and more.

Try it out using the search box at the top-right of most Launchpad
pages or here: https://launchpad.net/+search


Translations search
--------------------

Finding typos or untranslated strings in translation files is now far
easier, thanks to our new translations search!

Right now, you can search for a word or phrase within a particular
translation file.

You'll find the translation search box towards the top-right of
translation file pages. As an example, take a look at the French
translations page for Wordpress:

https://translations.launchpad.net/wordpress/2.5/+pots/wordpress/fr/+translate


Other changes this month
-------------------------

* Packages now have an estimated build start time. Pick a package
from Ubuntu's pending queue to see an example:
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+builds?build_text=&build_state=pending

* You now have the option of automatically subscribing to a team's
mailing list each time you join a team. Edit your subscription options
here: https://launchpad.net/people/+me/+editemails

release, take a look at the 1.2.5 milestone page:

Launchpad podcast
------------------

Each week we're producing a Launchpad team podcast, called Launchpod!
In it we interview people who are doing cool things with Launchpad and
talk to Launchpad developers about what they've been working on.

If you've got a question about Launchpad, let us have it and we'll
answer in the podcast. Post your questions at:

https://help.launchpad.net/Podcast
