Commons 2.1.0

I’ve just released version 2.1.0 of the CUNY Academic Commons.

Version 2.1.0 is one of our twice-yearly “feature releases”, and includes the following improvements:

  • Redesign of the top-level Events interface
  • Overhaul and consolidation of the Commons’s “About” page and subpages
  • Overhaul of the “Activity” page to replace the old “News” page, with features pulled from “My Commons”
  • Redesign and simplification of the ‘Create’ page

With these changes, we bring the redesign first launched in version 2.0.0 to more areas of the Commons.

In addition, Commons 2.1.0 is a major-release update for plugins and themes.
