February 2015 Keeping it Rolling Update

SocialEngine - Community Software

February 2015 was quite the month for SocialEngine. We are happy to see such a positive response to our activities.
We were working hard, but what was most tiring was cleaning the car off from the crazy snowfalls in Boulder.
The list is long, so let’s get to it:
Here’s the Skinny:
SocialEngine PHP

  • Released SocialEngine PHP 4.8.7 which is one of the biggest updates we’ve (new ownership) ever done
  • Brought in Shivani as a PHP Product Owner and Manager. She’s been busy consolidating SocialEngine PHP feedback, streamlining development and prioritizing defining features for 4.9.0 and 4.10.0
  • Feature identification and prioritization of product roadmap
  • Moved public bug tracking to github
  • Released the much needed and very big Facebook Custom App Setup knowledge base article

SocialEngine Cloud

  • Announced product roadmap
  • New code base for SocialEngine Cloud – Laravel 4
  • Fixes to LinkedIn and Facebook

  • Nailed down list of events to track in Intercom
  • Set up an integration with Ramen.is for an improved customer experience
