Has Hubble found planets around other stars?

Astronomers believe that there is little chance of finding new planets in our own solar system, and the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) has not been involved in any searches. However, the search for planets around other stars is very active, and HST is involved. Not even HST has directly seen planets around other stars, but it can detect indirect evidence.
