HUGE thanks to @railsstudent, @distalx, and @ajparise for these improvements! And many thanks to folks who filed Github bugs -- like @BethanyG for reporting the problem with hangout deletion and @stain88 for reporting the problem with the inability for regular study group members to add a link to the Links tab.

More exciting improvements upcoming in a future release:

  • ability to put down what times you're available (and see what times other people are available) in a study group (#717)
  • Display the # of people currently in the 24/7 hangouts (#719)
  • Redesign the display of events on /hangouts page (e.g. make the description more readable, cards bigger, etc.) (#547)
