Release Notes: DocumentCloud accounts for everyone plus entity extraction beta and scheduled publication
It’s been a while since we’ve published release notes, but we have a lot to share, including improvements to our crowdsourcing Assignments tool and a number of new DocumentCloud features.
This week, we upgraded older document embeds on MuckRock and released a small timesaver for DocumentCloud users.
In late August, we pushed out a major upgrade bringing MuckRock from Django 1.11 to Django 2.1 and from Python 2 to 3. While these updates didn’t offer much new functionality, they were important to help us continue keeping MuckRock secure and giving us an updated, modern platform to build on.
Jennifer 8. Lee has been an informal advisor to MuckRock since the very beginning, so last week we made things official and welcomed the entrepreneur, publisher, producer, journalist, and emoji activist to the MuckRock Foundation board of directors.
If you’re in Tunis or Houston, come say hi and see what’s in store as we continue integrating MuckRock and DocumentCloud. On the development front, only minor updates this week, including a tweak to stop our site statistics from breaking and more robust username handling.
