Today we unveiled the Launchpad 1.0 User Interface, which has been in private beta for the last few months. As well as the improved visual appearance, there are a number of new features such as the ability to add your own branding to Launchpad pages associated with your project (for example, Ubuntu’s pages).
As mentioned in the press release, we’ve got two new high profile projects using us for bug tracking: The Zope 3 Project and The Silva Content Management System. As part of their migration, we imported all their old bug reports (for Zope 3, and for Silva). This was done using the same import process that we used for the SchoolTool import. Getting this process documented so that other projects can more easily switch to Launchpad is still on my todo list.
As Launchpad is a user of Zope 3 technology, it is great being able to provide the bug tracking infrastructure for the project. It should also make it easier to collaborate on bugs that affect both Launchpad and Zope.
