Azureus is once again fixed

Over the past several weeks [http://launchpad.net/~jdong John Dong] has been working in [https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/azureus/+bug/57875 bug 57875] to make Azureus packages work again. Thanks to the help of countless package testers, this week the archive managers approved the updated package (2.5.0.4-1ubuntu3~gutsy1) for both the Backports and Updates repositories. We encourage torrenters to give Azureus another try -- you will find it faster, lighter, and more stable than you may expect.

Launchpad News

Inkscape is switching it’s bug tracking to Launchpad and will see the bug history imported. Please read Bryce Harrington (one of the project’s founders) comment here : http://news.launchpad.net/general/inkscape-moving-to-launchpad. If you have a project and wish to choose Launchpad for your bug tracking system, please send an email to feedback@launchpad.net.

Ubuntu Forum News

Additional forum spaming with malicious code that could corrupt user systems has unfortunately taken place once again this week. It got quickly handled, and a global banner has been set up to warn members: http://ubuntuforums.org/announcement.php?a=54. Next Forum Council meeting (date and time to be set up) will examine the different processes we can implement to deal with this new situation.
