What’s next? A lot: we’ve already started cracking on next month’s maintenance release, putting a new developer in charge of Community Events code + getting our support guru Barry involved on the dev side along the way. We’re picking up momentum coming out of the summer and aren’t planning on letting up any time soon. To that same end, we’ve got a handful of new plugins in the works…including Filter Bar, which just came out of beta this morning and should be ready for release in the very near future. If you notice any quirks with the new code, or have questions about functionality, we’re here for you on the forums. Hit us up.
