Simplified sign up, and other fixes released

written by planetcruiser - 2012/07/31 07:27

Hello hosts and travellers,

after just 3 months since the last software release ;) we are proud to present the following improvements:

  • Sign up now without residence address and without volunteer approval
  • Sign up with names containing special characters now possible (i.e. Chinese, Turkish or Cyrillic)
  • Result list of map search now displaying more active users first
  • Fixed gallery picture upload
  • Improved database performance
  • Banned profiles not accessible any longer
  • Fixed translation and CSS for quick search button on personal start page

There are a few more changes and plenty of technical details in the complete changelog.

The simplified sign up is a pretty big change for improving our new user's privacy. Existing users can now remove their address data as well of course. The location (city) set via the map however remains mandatory. How else could travelling members find you otherwise? :)

Thanks to crumbking, jsfan, mahouni200000, matthias, sitarane, tobixen and toub for helping with this release by contributing code, bug reporting, commenting and testing.

Enjoy the summer, or winter if you are down-under somewhere.. May non-profit hospitality exchange prevail! :)

Thanks! Respect you guys keep it up while CS seems to be doing "well" as an corporation and growing into rather messy mass tool. I'm only waiting when they'll start to charge for special features etc... Soon it'll be year since we met in Budapest Meinhard, shortly after I discovered BW. Interesting how things are connected.
