Hi there. I clicked in the dashboard to update to 14 but nothing happens. The wheel keeps turning for many hours but nothing happens. How do you update to the new version?

If anyone still had any doubts - check this out. Aussie legislators told Facebook they must negotiate commissions with local news sources, so Facebook threw a tantrum and banned us from sharing Australian news altogether. So, for example, on Facebook I can’t tell you that we are being gagged here 🤷‍♂️ 

The Big Brother 2.0 is not the government. Politicians come and go, they are merely puppets trying to make the most of their short career highs. The new world order is orchestrated by Big Tech and we must fight. ✊

Antares is a giant star, and UNA 12 is a massive update. It may well be the last feature release with so many changes, as we are looking to transition to shorter cycles with more focus on improving existing functionality. 

What's new in UNA 12 "Antares" 

*compared to UNA 11 Altair

Courses

A learning-oriented context-type module that can be used to build a knowledge-based community. Members create free or paid courses with start/end time, mixed content and invitation lists. Courses can operate like groups and include multiple content type items and feeds.

Classes

A content-type module that compliments Courses, allowing Course admins to create and manage educational content. Courses are grouped into modules, can have mixed-media content, and offer progression links between classes in a module. 

Tasks

The first iteration of the task-management module. You can add tasks to a group, event or course. Tasks are categorised by Tasklists and show due dates on a calendar.

Keep it real!

Videos discussing common questions and challenges that we face, and how we make decisions based on a simple principle - keeping it real.  What looks good "on-paper" may not be the same as what works best in real-life situations. Through our experience of building social networking software for over 17 years, we've learned a lot about "the big questions". In this series, I talk about these in details, in a causal manner, while driving around and doing daily chores. Keeping it real.  #keepitreal

Quick tests, examples and greetings.

This album is for short videos or fill-in images used as examples elsewhere.
