I’ve made some big changes in the code to remove usernames. Instead, we’ve replaced them with public names. I also added the first bit of XmlHttpRequest-enhanced goodness on the registration page to check whether a public name is taken. You should now be able to login with your e-mail address or your public name. For most of you, this is set to your old username so you won’t notice it. If you had a preferred name before, it hasn’t been changed.
There is a Difference Engine now built into the Revisions. Check it out – make a comment, edit it, and click on the “previous revisions” link. Select two revisions and click on the “Compare selected versions” button. You’ll get a version difference which is semantically marked up with ins and del tags. The “Edit Profile” link has now moved. I’m not sure how logically placed or easy to find it is – we’ll have to see.
I’m not sure if there are any bugs or anything – if you find any, please let me know 🙂 Support for changing passwords and public name is set to come soon. Persistant “Remember me” logins is also another priority.
