Updates deployed to the Connect production servers as a result of the code sprint that ended 01 April 2014.

User Facing: Desktop

  • Fixed an issue that was causing unauthenticated users to see an incorrect vote count on posts because pages with votes were not being cleared from the Akamai caches when a vote was cast.
  • Fixed and issue in post-by-email groups that was sending email notifications to users who were not group members.
  • Gave group administrators the ability to restrict posting across groups. If a group admin enables the "disable cross posting" feature for Group A, users will not be allowed to submit a post to Group A and Group B. When a user attempts to post to a restricted group and any other group(s), they will be asked to choose which group(s) the post should be removed from.
  • Modified our voting code and some other snippets to handle database save requests from anonymous users; since we've started allowing anonymous users to perform certain tasks like cast votes.
