I have just released version 1.3.0 of the `ros_buildfarm` package. I want to highlight a few items from the [changelog](https://github.com/ros-infrastructure/ros_buildfarm/blob/master/CHANGELOG.rst):

- add support for new platforms targeted by ROS Lunar (Ubuntu Yakkety and Zesty, Debian Stretch)
- provide new status page showing packages ready to be released / blocking other releases (e.g. [for Lunar](http://repositories.ros.org/status_page/blocked_releases_lunar.html))
- improve output of *devel* / *prerelease* jobs to fold sections when being used on Travis
- improve *prerelease* jobs to support external repos without requiring them to be listed in rosdistro

The Debian packaging has changed (similar to other packages recently, e.g. `catkin_pkg`, `rospkg`, `rosdistro`). The Debian packages `python(3)-ros-buildfarm` only contain the command line scripts (therefore only one of them can be installed). They depend on the `python(3)-ros-buildfarm-modules` package which contains the actual Python modules (thos two are side-by-side installable). This makes it easier to reuse Python code from both Python 2 and Python 3 at the same time. From the user point of view this change is transparent - the `-modules` package is an implementation detail. For the package provide through `pip` nothing has changed. For more information on this please see [PR #402](https://github.com/ros-infrastructure/ros_buildfarm/pull/402).

Happy Building!
