General updates:

  • Users can now subscribe to be notified by email when the status of an Idea changes.
  • The default setting for notifications is now "autosubscribe" for new users. This means they'll automatically receive an email when a solution is posted to questions they raise in the forums. (The autosubscribe setting can be changed by any user in their profile.)
  • Changed the Accreditation and Certification badges to leverage CertTracker imports instead of data pulled from PartnerNet on login.
  • Moved the Design@Symantec blog from to Connect:
  • Added vouchers for "Symantec Technical Specialist" and "Symantec Certified Specialist" exams to the Connect Rewards catalog.
  • Granted 13,452 ParterNet members escalated 'Partner' privileges on Connect.
  • Fixed an issue with the formatting of group membership request emails.
  • Added a visual element (life-preserver) to forum lists to indicate that a thread is in need of a solution.
  • Fixed an issue with the autocomplete feature in the developer documentation search interface.
  • Fixed an accounting issue with reward points related to users casting an "up" vote on another user's post and then changing their mind by casting a "down" vote.
  • Added a list of groups a user is a member of to their profile page. (Currently only visible to users with administrative permissions).

Product name updates:

  • Brightmail Gateway is now Messaging Gateway
  • Brightmail Message Filter is now Message Filter

Performance updates:

  • Changed frequency of generation of search indexes (for Symantec's internal GSM system) to once every 24 hours instead of once every 5 minutes.
  • Removed old Symantec Analytics code.
  • Removed old Materialized Views code.
  • Removed old Buzz Score code.

Added a visual element (life-preserver) to forum lists to indicate that a thread is in need of a solution.

I'm sure you've noticed that several threads are now marked with both the life preserver and the "resolved" check mark, making the life preserver pretty much meaningless. | APPLBN | 75LBN
