Release announcement

The Launchpad team is proud to announce Launchpad 10.04, released on May 4th
2010!

In this release you'll find the following new features:

 * Personal Package Archives have twice the disk space
 * Launchpad can automatically generate your project's translation templates
 * Project pages now make it easier to specify the project's Ubuntu package.


Standard PPA size now 2 GiB
----------------------------

We've doubled the standard size of Personal Package Archives to 2 GiB!

You don't need to do anything to start using the increased space: all new
and existing PPAs are now at least 2 GiB in size.

As you'd expect, this doesn't affect PPAs that are already larger than 2 GiB.


Automatic translation template generation
------------------------------------------

Launchpad can now help prepare your project for translation by automatically
producing template files from the English language strings in your source
code.

Danilo's blog post explains how to set up your project so you no longer have
to manually generate, and then commit, your translation templates:

Ubuntu package suggestions on project overview pages
-----------------------------------------------------

Launchpad's project directory helps you to find out more about a project, such
as where it tracks its bugs, where it hosts its code and, in many cases, which
are its related Ubuntu packages.

Now, if Launchpad doesn't know which Ubuntu package is related to a project,
it will suggest likely candidates. If you're logged into Launchpad, visit the
project's overview page and you can accept one of those suggestions, specify
another package or mark the project as not packaged in Ubuntu.
