  • BUGFIX: When joining a group with an unconfirmed account, the instructions weren't being displayed.
  • BUGFIX: Plain text digests containing messages with attachments weren't being sent.
  • BUGFIX: When deleting database rows that have checkbox columns, the wrong number of rows to be deleted was being reported.
  • CHANGE: Tweaked Confirmation email to mention group name in subject.
  • NEW: /unconfirm page to unconfirm your account for testing (not linked to anywhere on the site).
  • CHANGE: Full featured digests now have both reply to group/reply to sender.

  • CHANGE: Re-worded invitation email to be a little more clear.

Mark,

NEW: Redid Your Groups dropdown to show hierarchy of subgroups.
Outstanding!

BUGFIX: When joining a group with an unconfirmed account, the
instructions weren't being displayed.
Confirmed they are now, thanks. ;-)

CHANGE: Tweaked Confirmation email to mention group name in subject.
Also confirmed, thanks.

NEW: /unconfirm page to unconfirm your account for testing (not linked
to anywhere on the site).
I missed something: unconfirm isn't enough.

To test as a truly new user the email address must be completely forgotten (removed from the site's memory). Maybe the /unconfirm page could have a second button to delete the account (email address).

BUGFIX: Redirect legacy subgroup urls.
Yay!

I have replaced /unconfirm with /deleteuser, which will delete your account completely (after you confirm your intentions).

Cheers,
