Thanks for all your hard work on the project module Derek--I really like
having official releases.

Is it there a setting I can change to remove the "Development Snapshots"
table altogether from my module page?  I only want to show the "Official
Releases" table on the module page.  I don't want users stumbling onto a
development snapshot by mistake.  I'm looking here
http://drupal.org/project/taxonomy_breadcrumb .

Subject: [development] changes to project nodes and admin UI and
nowinstalled on drupal.org

i've recently finished another round of project node improvements, and i
just installed them all on drupal.org.  of particular interest, the "default
version" link on the project nodes is now gone, replaced with an
auto-generated table of the latest releases for each version of core your
module supports[1].  development snapshots are there in a separate table.

here's the important thing for you to know:

if your project has more than 1 branch for a given version of core (e.g.
4.7.x-2.* and 4.7.x-1.* releases) you can now specify if the  
latest 1.* or 2.* should be the default release for your project[2].   
"default" means it'd be listed in that table on your project node, and it'd
be used as the "Download" link on the project browsing pages [3] when
filtering by a specific version of core (e.g. 4.7.x). you can select this
via the new admin UI which is the "releases" subtab on the edit tab of your
project node[4].  i hope the table is fairly self-explanatory (though
suggestions for improving the usability of that table are certainly

also note that all issue-related project node settings now live in the
"issues" subtab, instead of being buried in collapsed fieldsets on the old
monolithic edit tab.

[3] for example http://drupal.org/project/Modules/name
[4] see http://drupal.org/node/96971

p.s. if filter by <all> versions on the project browsing pages, things are
still kind of lame.  i'm working on fixing this:
any help there would be appreciated.  thanks!
