Release announcement

We're proud to announce the release of Launchpad 2.1.12 and two
exciting new ways for other services to use data in Launchpad.


Create a Launchpad plugin for your bug tracker
-----------------------------------------------

Launchpad can already import the status of a bug report that's in
another tracker, such as Debian's BTS or Sourceforge.

Recently, we also announced two plugins -- for Bugzilla and 
Trac -- that enable two-way communication, starting off with 
sharing a bug's comment history between those trackers and 
Launchpad.

Now anyone can create their own plugins to enable other bug 
trackers to communicate directly with Launchpad. We've published
our bug plugin API on the help wiki:

Launchpad modules for Drupal 5.x
---------------------------------

Building on Launchpad's OpenID support, we've produced two Drupal
5.x modules that let you:

 * use Launchpad to authenticate your Drupal site's visitors
 * assign Drupal roles based on someone's Launchpad team 
   memberships.
   
We're working on support for Drupal 6.x right now.

Full details of 2.1.12
-----------------------

If you filter Launchpad bug mail, look out for a new header:

  X-Launchpad-Bug-Commenters
  
It lists, alphabetically, everyone who has commented on the bug,
including the original poster, with each name separated by
spaces.

To get the full details of the Launchpad 2.1.12 release, have a

January.
