It happens often that something really cool is made by the GP team. Think of this roadmap, status page etcetera. I now have to read this on Facebook, but it would be nice if there would me *something* central where I can find out those things.
Hopefully, with the weekly newsletter and changelog update, as well as the monthly blog post this covers this for everyone.
I fully agree. I've been looking for a changelog on the website but couldn't find it. Then i finally saw "an update" posted on the blog, and i thought the blog was hacked because the article was full of gibberish. I put a bit more effort and then I found out that Patrick is just a crazy awesome dude being very personal and open and now I love you guys. Please put a link to roadmap.gridpane.com/f/changelog/ on your website in the footer. Also, I'm really interested in any speed enhancements you're doing, even if it's the smallest thing, to know you're always trying to be on top of your game.
I haven't had a lot of bandwidth to do this just yet, but our plan here is to automate everything where news gets automatically distributed on all the channels. Jeff has been updating the change log here:
Blog is going to be more "pretty" and have a lot more general detail. We're also planning to release other articles. Non technical articles that may be more informational. IE, what is Bobby's strategy for picking server sizes? Etc.
Email should be sent for these kind of anouncements.
