The Wall Comes Down and Other Mix Changes

1berlinwall.pngIt’s a busy week for Mix. Monday, Rich and Anthony upgraded to JRuby 1.1RC2 and made a bunch of UI changes. Has anyone else noticed that Mix is faster?

Last night, Anthony (Rich took some well-deserved time off) deployed a new set of changes, including one that has been requested quite frequently. We took down the work email address wall. You no longer need to use your work email address to vote for and create ideas. This was an early question posed by Paul Gallagher, and later an idea, and yes, I got the irony of proposing an idea that could not be supported by its main constituency.

So, the wall has been torn down, reference to an analogy Rich used in an email. Feel free to change your profile email address to a public one if you wish. This won’t affect anything you’ve previously done in Mix, but you’ll need to confirm the new email account before you can get back to Mixing. There are a few areas that still reference the need for a work email address, but rest assured, those will be cleaned up soon.

Here’s a rundown of the other changes:

What do you think of Mix? It’s evolved a lot lately to be more stable, faster and more functional. We’re listening to what you’re suggesting. Sound off in comments.
