Another release to detail for you hit the street last night with several enhancements and bug fixes...

  • To help ask clarifying questions, you may now comment on a question. Please use this instead of answers to ask the author of a question about their question.
  • New email alert notification option allows for you to be alerted via email when someone comments on an answer or a comment you've made (so you need not follow everything you answer or comment upon). This new capability may be turned off, but is on by default in your profile now.
  • New email alert notification for new software tips created on software that you follow. Note that currently this is version specific so you will get notifications for specific versions of software titles that you follow.
  • Recent software tips have been added to the top of the home page
  • New "following" tabs have been added to the Questions and Links pages to help members more easily focus on content that interests them. The content shown here will be limited to items tagged with tags you follow.
  • Our product communities now offer links to their native software product and support home pages (offsite)
  • Tagging content should be easier. We've removed many of the unnecessary low level versions of products (only showing major versions of software products in the tagging control now)
  • We've started using new caching technology, which starts small in this release but should help improve performance very soon.
  • Graphic update: a new look for our virtual ninja belts.
  • Bug: all users (loggged in and not) are now able to see answer summaries on questions.
  • Bug: page now refreshes after adding comments to software tips, blog posts or shared links.
  • Bug: question page now uses same pagination standard, with page size near pagination controls
  • Bug: URLs for shared links longer than 255 characters are now supported
