autologin under upstart).
The /usr/bin/loginscript still hasn't changed, and this still works:
#! /bin/sh /bin/login -f yourusername
But the syntax has changed a little for the getty line in /etc/event.d/tty1: respawn is now on its own line (I don't know if that matters -- I still can't find any documentation on this file's syntax, though I found a new upstart page that links to some blog entries illustrating how upstart can be used to start system daemons like dbus). And the getty now needs an exec before it. Like this:
respawn exec /sbin/getty -n -l /usr/bin/loginscript 38400 tty1
Update: this changed again in Karmic Koala: the file has moved from /etc/event.d/tty1 to /etc/init/tty1.conf.
