I’ve been hacking on Launchpad for a while now and I’d like to announce some of the new things I’ve added. The first 2 are in production now. The last two, however, will need a few more days to get into production.
Smart autolinkifying in bugs
As evident from the screenshot, it greys out the bug if the bug does not exit (or is private). I wrote in detail about fixing this earlier.
UTC offset along with timezone
We now go the extra mile and display the UTC offset as well to help in some play plan out meetings, etc.
Edit sprite for attachments
Long time frustration of mine. The edit URL for attachments is in a portlet on the right side, not easy to spot. Once this fix rolls out, however, it will be much more friendlier.
Better blueprints validation
Earlier, I’d just get a ‘… is already registered by another blueprint’, this fix, once rolled out, helps ease out and find that blueprint.
To repeat again, the last two fixes are not in production as of me writing this post. Perhaps by next week or the week after, it should be.
