Hi All - please see below this weeks Tech Wrap-Up

Work In Progress:

  • Fix for bug where saving a reply with an image without waiting for the image to finish uploading can result in broken image
  • Faster save of posts containing images that were added by URL
  • We started mocking a new standalone settings page, the goal is to have a more straightforward way of editing profile and blog settings
