We are pleased to announce that Side 7 v4.1 will be released soon. We're aiming for the first week in October. While reviewing our design goals, we've changed our release process. Instead of one to two large updates per year, we've decided we're going to work in 60-day development cycles, and release numerous smaller updates each year. These updates will bring about new features, bug fixes, and design changes.
Version 4.1 is up first, bringing with it a lot of behind-the-scenes fixes and updates, but also a number of forums bug fixes, optimization of many of the database queries (which will speed up the site considerably), and bring in some new features.
Some of the new features include:
- RSS and Twitter feeds: Keep your friends up to date on your latest posts by having post links automatically cross-post to Twitter, or update via RSS (available to 5-Star Accounts).
- Journals: Keep your friends up to date with your deepest thoughts with your account journal.
- Custom Links: Like a particular tutorial or web site? Add it to your links list, fully customizable with categories!
- Invite-A-Friend: Send automatic invites to your friends, complete with referral links to earn Account Points.
Keep your eyes open for more updates!
