We are now scheduled to push this new release out tomorrow night, Saturday, September 27th with a planned downtime of 30 minutes at 10:30pm PDT.
This release includes key improvements:
1. A new message center
2. An iPhone interface which will be available at http://www.ThinkAtheist.com/m
3. Simplification of the Main and Profile Pages and consistency of features generally
4. a new HTML email design.
5. Members can now follow group discussions by receiving notifications of new threads. They are notified when they join a group that they will receive these email notifications automatically, but can turn these off very easily from the group’s homepage
6. Faster performance enhancements to make the site even faster.
7. The biggest change in this release is the profile page is now the only page on a network that displays a member’s chosen appearance. Currently, the member’s theme is displayed on that member’s blog, My Settings and friends pages too. In turning the blog into its own tab in this release and restructuring navigation for better usability, the different themes created a confusing experience. As a result, the blog and friends pages now take on the theme of the network, not the member’s theme.
More details soon! :)
