Updates deployed to the Connect production servers as a result of the code sprint that ended 06 August 2013.

User Facing: Desktop

  • Added [brackets] around group names when they appear in the subject lines of email notifications. This enables users to organize their mailboxes with rules that detect group names enclosed in brackets.
  • Added the ability for users -- who've been granted the translator role -- to add translations of comments to Connect. Translators can already translate forum posts, now they can translate the replies to those posts.
  • Fixed a few IE8 and Firefox navigation issues with the new Help Center.
  • Fixed an issue with incorrect solved counts under the Trusted Advisors tab on the Community overview pages.

Admin Facing

  • Resolved a permissions issue that was allowing underprivileged users to promote content to a featured state.
  • Fixed emails sent to site admins when they created private groups. Verification emails now include details about the newly-created group.
  • Fixed a problem with the monthly userpoints (Connect Rewards) report timing out before it finished processing.

Performance Wins

  • Discovered several thousand duplicate URL aliases in one of our database tables that were impacting performance. The developers wrote a script that identified the duplicate entries and removed them.
