HashOver gets required fields! Useful when you really need to store your users' info, like for blocking by e-mail.

This change technically happened back in September with the release of GNOME 3.18. You could make the claim that it took far longer than 3 years, you could say it took 16 years to get this functionality, and I personally have been waiting for this since I first started using GNOME back in 2006 with Fedora Core 6. Also, the "Rename" and "Move to Trash" options aren't available in the "Open File" dialog, but in retrospect that's not really necessary.

7,437 additions and 5,056 deletions to 70 files later and the latest #HashOver code is now available on GitHub!

This is once again a release focused primarily on under-the-hood improvements. New users won't notice much of a difference between this release and the previous, existing users however, will have to convert their comments to the new format and will have to make all of their setting changes all over again.

Advanced users have a lot to look forward to in this release. Those of you interested please read the ChangeLog.

HashOver Gets a Logo!

http://tildehash.com/?blog=hashover-gets-a-logo

Over the past few days I've been in talks with a nice fellow named Kamil Jablonski, a concept artist, graphic designer, and web developer who recently contributed a Polish locale for HashOver. He shared with me a logo design for HashOver, that after some back and forth became, in my opinion, a very cool design.

I just pushed my latest code for HashOver to Github, this includes changes to 55 files, with 5918 additions and 2264 deletions. That sounds like a lot, but it's mainly under-the-hood stuff.

Some things users might find useful is the addition of the "Latest Comments" widget, that can display the latest X number of comments (default is 10) from either a specific page or from every page.

You can also dislike comments now, if you enable it. This allows Reddit-style voting.

You can set a "Break Point" where only a specific number of comments (default is 3) will be shown and then a link that will display the rest when clicked.

Threaded versions of each comment sorting method. Meaning, you can sort by date, for example, and still read the replies in regular order.

However, there are honestly too many changes to list here. So for those of you who are interested, be sure to check out the change log: http://tildehash.com/hashover/changelog.txt

Oh yeah- and a redesign of the default theme!

Just noticed.

Not having a way to find past discussions I participated in was one of Google Plus' biggest flaws. I would see a post on my stream (?), I would post something in response, useful and/or interesting discussions would start, and then as time would pass and people would stop posting, the post would disappear off my stream.

Naturally.

However, I often participate in discussions where useful information is shared, like code snippets, and programming explanations. Not being able to ever find those discussions short of searching Google (oh the irony) or bookmarking everything I think I'll need to find again, was a huge negative for Google Plus.

Literally, every other social network has had some clear and easy way to find YOUR OWN POSTS!
