|This thread is about major releases of AstroBin, usually including large features. For all smaller improvements that might happen on a daily basis or so, subscribe to The AstroBin Hotfixes thread.|
I just released and deployed an update on AstroBin. Here's the recent change log, since I haven't been publishing it here, you might find something useful in there.
Something to take note of: there was a minor update to the terms of service. Since I moved from Finland to Switzerland, and AstroBin the company moved with me, I thought it's a good idea to update the TOS regarding the copyright law. AstroBin now follow the Copyright Act of Switzerland, instead of that of Finland.
In practice, this means nothing :-D You are still the owners of your images.

|Oops, immediately released v1.21.1 because I accidentally broke something. Let's see if someone noticed :-D|

|On the individual User pages, it is showing their images, but no stats/info about the user on the left side as it used to. Intentional?|
# 01 Mar, 2018 22:13
|If it were intentional it wouldn't have been an "oops" :-P|
# 01 Mar, 2018 22:16
|Haha, wasn't sure if that was the "oops"|

Something has been different with my email notifications over the past few days, the links aren't linked. That is I have to cut and paste the link into the browser. I can go to the entire feed to view the new images from people. Is that how we are supposed to do it now? - Kurt Zeppetello

Just released a new version! Sorry for the instability in the last couple of hours, there were a few gestation problems.
These are the main highlights:
Please join me in thanking Paul Krizak for his valuable contributions!
And as usual, a reminder that everybody is welcome to help. I do my best but AstroBin is larger than a single man can handle
Check the repo on GitHub if you want to help!
PS: there is one regression: the comment usernames now show the bare usernames again, instead of the real names. It's almost 1 AM now so I will fix it tomorrow.

Forgot to make an announcement for v1.27.x, so here's the changelog, but the highlight for today is v1.28.0, which adds a Data source field to the basic settings of an image. This fields represents the provenience of the data used in post-processing to generate the published image.
The field can also be searched using the advanced search.
It's mandatory to fill this field for new images, while all old images are currently set to "Unknown". It would be great if you could go thru your archive and update your images! Unfortunately I didn't have the time to make a bulk-update page yet…
In the future, this field will be used in contests such as the Top Picks, and custom contests when I will have time to code that module.

Hi Salvatore and team,|
many thanks again for you all and your engagement. Without you astrobin would not be possible .

I am missing as data source something like a club observatory for astronomy club members with shared equipment.
# 23 May, 2018 21:29

|carissimo, Salvatore ti scrivo sperando di non disturbarti troppo, come saprai io sono solo un vecchio italiano che non sa l'inglese anche se ce la metto tutta per capire almeno i termini essenziali, e se posso ti chiedo se nel mio caso devo fare qualche modifica al tuo programma Astrobin, ho posso continuare ad usarlo regolarmente senza combinare guai, so di essere ignorante in merito, perciò aspetto una tua paziente risposta in merito, con rispetto un caro saluto; c.colombo|

|Ciao Carlo, continua pure ad usarlo normalmente!|

today I performed a critical upgrade to some infrastructure. To explain it as plainly as I can, what I've done is I enabled AstroBin to scale to multiple servers in the future, to allow for better performance and less downtime.
This took me two weeks of intense work, and unfortunately there are no visible changes for you, but it was nonetheless a massive and needed improvement!
Full change-log down below!
Thanks for reading,

now, there is a little Issue back again: the language on astrobin now in my case is english since this morning and it ´ s not possible to move to the german language again. In the past, I had the same on astrobin. May be there is a new little bug. Is there a solution for this ?
many thanks for you in advance
