May 2020 Development Updates

It's been a while, friends! Just after our last post, COVID-19 turned the world upside down as it turned into a global pandemic. I hope that you and your loved ones are safe. We'll get through this!

0.0.1 and 0.0.2 Release

Two milestones were hit with the 0.0.1 and 0.0.2 releases to the alpha version. 0.0.1 provided much of the core background functionality for the site to function.

Friend Request Notifications

Whenever somebody sends you a friend request, you now get a notification to your requested notification service. The header bar now shows a little notification badge by the "Friends" menu item to show that you have pending friend requests.

Event Feed

The event feed has been built, showing what you and your friends are doing.

New Branding Proof-of-Concept

The front page has now been restyled to try out some new branding ideas. I'm working on more behind the scenes on this, but let us know if you have any feedback!

That's all for now; next up is some of the legal documents (such as the privacy policy, terms of service, GDPR and CCPA compliance, etc), the welcome wizard, and some performance improvements. See you at the end of June!
