Another christmas release (2005-12-27)

  • Added notes support. Now you can write a short note for each of your bookmarks. If the bookmark is public the note can either be public or private (if the bookmark is private the note is always private).

    You can use the notes field in many different ways. For example, if the bookmark is for your web mail account you could create a private note and save the userid/password you need to log on to your mail account there and when you browse your bookmarks you (and only you) see that information. Nice, huh?

    It may also be good to know that notes are not (yet) searchable.
  • Re-added support for popular links. The http://www.netvouz.com/popular page again shows the most clicked bookmarks on Netvouz (it has been disabled for a few days). Clicks generated by search engines such as Google, Yahoo etc. are not counted. A great place to see which links are really active.

Puh, christmas sure is a busy period....

Merry Christmas!

Today I launched a new version of Netvouz. It doesn't look much different from the previous one so you may not be too excited about this. But for Netvouz it's an important release.

This version is a major improvement of the core platform that Netvouz stands upon. With the enhancements in this release Netvouz now has a more robust, faster and flexible platform that we can continue to add new exciting features to. And the features list is long, so you will see new releases coming out at a steady rate over the weeks and months to come.

There will be improvements to the search engine, support for adding short notes to bookmarks, tags as RSS and JavaScript feeds so you can publish your tag cloud on your blog, visual improvements to the tags list, improved documentation, bookmark subscriptions, an API etc. etc. etc.

Also a big thanks to everyone who is sending cheerful and inspiring mails!

Work is progressing well

I promised you a new Netvouz release which would fix the administrative tasks once and for all as well as restore the enhanced social capabilities we had a month ago. Just wanted to let you all know that work is progressing well.

I have rewritten and improved much of the core framework Netvouz stands upon to improve its performance and stability.

The new release should hopefully see public light in a week or so.
