10.3.26 brought a whole slew of new mobile fixes/enchancements too numerous to go into detail on, so let's talk about the non-mobile changes.

The first change you'll notice is that the release notes are now on permanent display on the front page of the admin. This way, your site automatically updating itself doesn't prevent you from seeing the list of what changed.

While doing the mobile stuff, note I moved the delete boxes on the edit listing/category/comment/member/field/help pages to the bottom and made them collapsed by default. This has a dual purpose: it reduces the amount of scrolling needed to get to the more commonly used content (especially important on mobile), and it serves as a confirmation of intent to delete since it takes two clicks/taps now.

Recently I removed a bunch of dead IM fields like AIM, Yahoo, MSN messenger. Now I've repurposed that section as "social" and added a twitter field. This should soon enable displaying recent tweets on a person's profile or by their listings/comments.

I've added a "login with meetup" option to go along with the facebook and google oauth federated sign-ins. It imports their meetup pic as avatar, their meetup interests and bio etc to the respective WSN fields. It also imports the member's twitter handle if they've supplied that to meetup. Meetup sends the person's first name usually as the only name identifier, so there will be a lot of name colissions causing WSN to append random numbers to the end of the names to make them unique. And unfortunately, meetup does not allow requesting the member email address. The member is logged in, but next time they try to edit their profile (and before they get any notifications) they'll have to enter their email if email is a required field on your site.

Non-mobile fixes in both 10.2 and 10.3 included a fuller proper fix to bulk add URLs, the member personal link list (which was redirecting to the index since who knows when), a tiny little map pin apostrophe encoding issue, and a minor annoyance with the language editor reloading the last requested content.
