Known issues

  • Supported Browsers / Devices
    • Currently only Firefox & Chrome has been heavily test.
    • Internet Explorer 11 & Edge has been partially tested.
    • There was no extensive testing on mobile devices yet
    • We need your feedback if something isn't working on your device
  • There are (apparently) still some annoying issues with CKEditor. We spent a lot of time to improve it, so keep reporting issues!
  • The green lock (https info) might be not fully green and might show "Insecure content" - This is due some resources are still fetched over http instead of https
    • We will resolve this over time.

Whats next?

We await (your) community feedback now (heart) While working on additional improvements and features, the feedback from the community will be put together into more frequent updates.

The next update (v0.6.0-donor-beta) will fix some quirks with CKEditor (previously planned for this release, but the forum software update was more important)
There will be also finally HTML emails, instead of plain emails. You'll see shortly the improvement (smile)

It has been a busy year and there will be soon progress on other Applications & Services again - stay tuned!
