New version of IdeaJam released

Category features


Well we spent a little time upgrading the public IdeaJam site to run on the full production version of our templates. It was a wonderfully pain free process, even though we were upgrading a fairly old, pre-release version of the application. But it's nice to have confirmed how simple the whole IdeaJam application is to look after.

So we've put together a short list of the changes. Most of the serious stuff is behind the scenes to make the databases easy to look after but there are a few key visible changes that we'll talk about over the next few weeks.

    - central "Control Panel"
