New Release: PeepSo and Gecko 2.8.0.0

Introducing a new semi-strict version lock, new display name styles and some fixes.

What’s new?

New version number scheme

Starting with 2.8.0.0 the PeepSo will use a four-section version number. Only the first three numbers will have a hard version lock, meaning we will be able to do partial releases without forcing an update of the entire suite. The rule of thumb is, if we have some small improvements to ship in only one plugin, ones that don’t depend on code in another plugin, we can now do it without version-bumping the whole collection. For example, we could release Groups 2.8.0.1 next week, while the rest of the suite remains on 2.8.0.0. This system has worked very well for Gecko over the years, and we decided to implement it everywhere. Larger updates will see a bump to the third number, as usual, to ensure cross-plugin compatibility.

New display name styles

Based on popular demand, we have implemented some additional name styles, available both in the admin section and in the user-facing interface (if enabled). The two new styles are first name only and first name with initial. The user-facing interface has been improved with a preview of how their name will actually look with each setting.

Others

Admin can now define a custom delay between password reset requests (brute force protection). We also added a button to permanently hide the PeepSo 3 warning nag.

And one more thing…

We are slowly gearing up for the biggest release in PeepSo history – version 3.0.0.0 will ship a new design (including new HTML and CSS), group category streams, and more streamlined notification engine with the ability to “digest” e-mail notifications instead of emailing the user every single event.

We strongly encourage you to prepare a staging environment to test the upcoming version 3.0.0.0 because of all the breaking changes we are going to ship. This will allow us to fix any potential issues and conflicts in a timely manner without compromising your live site.

Before [PeepSo](https://PeepSo.com) I was a contractor and have helped build successful businesses around the world, including USA, UK, Germany, Indonesia and Malaysia. A couple of years leading up to founding PeepSo, I was involved with JomSocial - a social networking extension for Joomla. Stepping up from the role of contractor to business owner, I became [PeepSo](https://PeepSo.com) founder and Chief Technology Officer. I strive to build beautiful, fast and functional software that **empowers the users to build their own digital tribes with full autonomy and freedom** often not available on the mainstream social networking media. As a **location independent** *digital nomad* I travel almost constantly, although over the past five years I have spent most of my time in Indonesia and Malaysia. I speak fluent English and Polish, decent German and Spanish and even some Indonesian.
