We're delighted to announce the release of Patchwork v2.0.0 ("Dazzle"):

This release has been cooking for over 18 months and brings some fantastic new
features for users of development-focussed mailing list. Feature highlights of
v2.0.0 include:

* A REST API, which will eventually replace the legacy XML-RPC API
* Support for patch series
* Support for cover letters

...and many others.  You can see the full list of changes in the release notes
[1]. You can also refer to the documentation for this release [2].

This should be the last major version bump for some time and we would encourage
users to upgrade as soon as possible. The development roadmap for future 2.x
versions of Patchwork is still in flux, but it's expected that we'll further
refine the UI and new REST API, as well as implement more of the features that
you, the community, have been asking for. For more info, or to provide feedback
on this and future releases, be sure to subscribe to the mailing list [3].

Finally, it's simply wonderful to look back at the amount of effort and support
that people around the world have put into making this the most feature-packed, 
stable and secure Patchwork release to date. A huge thank you to everyone who's
contributed patches, submitted bug reports and provided general feedback over
the past 18 months. Patchwork 2.0 could not have been achieved without you.

Happy patchworking!


Patchwork is a patch tracking system for community-based projects. It is
intended to make the patch management process easier for both the project's
contributors and maintainers, leaving time for the more important (and more
interesting) stuff. You can find out more on the Patchwork homepage [4], the
GitHub repo [5], or the docs [6].
