Additions, Changes, and Fixes

This page details the major feature additions and changes in Socialtext 1.4 from the previous version, Socialtext 1.3. The Socialtext Socialtext Documentation page includes documentation on these new features.

Simple Visual Editing

There's no longer a need to remember markup. Just click on the visual buttons to place the correct markup into the text. To format some text, or make a link out of some words, simply select the text, and click the button.

Fast Edit

The responsiveness of the system has been improved. When you have a thought you want to express, just click and start writing. You no longer need to wait for a new page to load.

Comment Date Displays in the Reader's Time Zone

Regardless of the time zone in which a comment was created, the reader sees the datestamp in his or her own timezone. For example, a comment that was made in London at 4pm GMT will appear with a datestamp of 10am Central time for a reader in Chicago.

Known Issues

The Visual Editor does not work in Safari. It has been tested in Internet Explorer and Netscape/Mozilla, on Windows, Mac, and Linux.

When using Internet Explorer, you need to select text first in order to format the text or add a link.
