Weekly Roundup

Aaron Brethorst, February 20, 2012

Howdy, and welcome to another weekly roundup. We’ve received an incredible number of controls over the past couple weeks—so many, in fact, that we’re now publishing two controls per day. At least for now. Last week’s Bootstrap 2.0 migration went relatively smoothly, and I haven’t heard anything about, so I can only assume that you haven’t run into too many issues. As always, though, please ping us if you have any problems.
