Loggerhead is a web viewer for projects in bazaar. It can be used to navigate a branch history, annotate files, perform searches, view patches, etc. It's originally based on bazaar-webserve, which is itself based on hgweb for Mercurial.
· Bazaar >= 1.6
What's New in This Release:
· Download a diffs between revisions. (Martin Albisetti)
· Modified templates to make loggerhead's theme easier to change. (Paul Hummer)
· Default sqlite interface is now sqlite3. (Robert Collins)
· New ninja theme sponsored by Canonical (Martin Albisetti)
· Added COPYING file and clarified copyright headers (John Arbash Meinel)
· Remove the .py extension requiered by the Debian Policy. (Jelmer Vernooij)
· New startup script serve-branches will serve Loggerhead without the need of configuration, and allow you to browse through directories and branches. (Michael Hudson)
· Loggerhead is no longer a TurboGears application, but rather a WSGI application built using Paste (see http://wsgi.org/ and http://pythonpaste.org/ for more about WSGI and Paste).
· URLs now use revision numbers instead of revision ids (Martin Albisetti)
· The scripts no longer insist on Python 2.4 -- loggerhead works fine with 2.5.
· Bazaar as of version 1.5 has improved in performance enough that the revision cache no longer gave any noticeable benefit, so it was removed (the files-changed cache is still useful).
· The templates were rewritten in Zope's TAL markup, powered by the simpleTAL library -- improving both the performance and memory consumption of rendering by a factor of around 3 for large pages over the old Kid templates.
· Loggerhead's poorly performing text index was disabled. bzr-search is now used if the plugin is installed and a text index is present on the branch being viewed. (Martin Albisetti, Robert Collins).
· Loggerhead no longer depends on bzrlib functions deprecated in Bazaar 1.5 and removed in 1.6 (Martin Albisetti).
· The daemonization code was made more regular, fixing bugs #139161 ("Starting loggerhead process may not close its stdin and stdout properly") and #211526 ("Codebrowse log directory has unnecessarily permissive permissions")
· Some confusion about what the 'file_id' query argument means was cleared up: filter_file_id now means "filter revisions to those that affect this file" in all views and file_id means "examine this file/directory" in the annotate and inventory views.
· Dates are present more compactly.
· The loggerhead.conf file can specify which network interface to bind to (Mattias Eriksson)

· Loggerhead 1.18.1 brings security and stability fixes. Filenames are now correctly escaped in revision views, removing a cross-site scripting vector (CVE-2011-0728). A crash in start-loggerhead when log rotation was enabled has also been fixed.
