DRAFT Release Notes 0.23.7


Release 0.23.7 is a maintenance release to 0.23.6. That is primarily a bug fix. It is a recommended upgrade for anyone performing distribution to remote nodes requiring credentials.


  • Enhancements to Distribute Registration Form aka /register:

    • Added BrowserID registration to capture valid emails for contact purposes.
    • Added ability to specify distribution endpoint username/password when registering a distribution endpoint.
