Brightidea Release Notes – March 21st 2012

Update - March 23rd 2012:

We have rolled back the statistic counters on Status and Categories widgets' due to issues we found in Production.  Apologies for the inconvenience.  Thank you.


The Brightidea Team.


In the past two weeks, we have made several enhancements. Please see below for a list of the most important ones. Note that most of these will not take effect until Wednesday, March 21st, 2012, 8:30PM EST.

We have thoroughly tested these new enhancements and fixes to ensure high quality before allowing them into production. In case you notice any disruptions, please let us know and we will take fast, appropriate action. Thank you!

    The R click to select to go back to WebStorm home is good... I wondered how to do this and thought about logging it!  :-)
