Introduction
Ushahidi, which translates to “testimony” in Swahili, was developed to map reports of violence in Kenya after the post-election violence in 2008. Since then, thousands have used our crowdsourcing tools to raise their voice. We’re a technology leader in Africa, headquartered in Nairobi, with a global team.

We have discovered an issue with image upload within deployments. We are working urgently to address the issue and will keep you all updated. Until it is fixed, users may not be able to upload images into their deployments.

Ushahidi got a lot more powerful today. After a lot of listening, we released major design improvements and new features that bring clarity to the data and storytelling within Ushahidi deployments. This is good news for everyone who uses Ushahidi because, starting today, you'll get more out of your deployment:

* A totally re-imagined and streamlined interface that makes it easier to collect and understand data.
* You can now add photos to your posts, to gather those important visual moments.
* You can export your data via CSV to make it interoperable.
* We removed post limits so you can gather all the data you need.

Here's all the details: https://www.ushahidi.com/blog/2016/06/14/users-lead-redesign-and-feature-additions

After re-launching Ushahidi last October, we stopped guessing who the typical Ushahidi user was, and how they needed the software to work. Instead, we pushed everything aside so they could tell us. And now we're preparing to release what they designed.

When things change on your Ushahidi deployment, it’s critical that you know right away. To help you keep track of these changes, and trends that develop, we created a new “Activity” view that lives inside every deployment.

What about when you’re busy with another task, not looking at your deployment?

To help keep you up to speed with the most important activity on your deployment, we’ve also expanded the reach of notifications. Beginning today, users on all Ushahidi.com Surveyor and Ushahidi Open Source deployments can turn on email and SMS notifications for the Collections and Saved Searches they choose, alerting them to the addition of posts that matter to them most.

See all the details today on the Ushahidi blog: https://www.ushahidi.com/blog/2015/11/19/stay-on-top-of-changes-and-trends-in-your-deployment-with-activity
