What's a release?

Simply put, a release is a package of software updates consisting of new features and bug fixes along with new content. On CCL Community, we'll release updates every other week.

New Features 

  • Forums Date Format. The display of dates on forum posts has been modified:
    • Posts up to 1 month old show the number of days since the post was created
    • Posts older than 1 month ago show the month and year
    • All forum posts show the full date and time when a member hovers over the date in the footer
  • Delete Forum File. Members can now delete files from forum posts by clicking the trash can icon next to the file name.
  • Events Video. Videos can now be added to an event. Supported video providers currently include Vimeo, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitch. To add a video:
    • Click the dropdown on the event card
    • Choose ‘Add video’
    • Add the URL (not the embed code) to the video you wish to add

Bug Fixes

  • Event Invite.  Resolved an issue where file breadcrumbs pointed to file categories outside of the group.
  • Badges. Badge descriptions are no longer truncated to fifty characters in the popover view.
