Development Blog for grepr

Saturday, December 23, 2006

Hi everyone,

It's been a busy couple of weeks with the holidays and all, but we have a couple of new features to mention.

The first feature we added is the ability to browse by language. We noticed we have received many international visitors, which was a pleasant suprise. We'd like to thank Genbeta again for their article and all of its readers of that site who have visited grepr. In response to these and future visitors we added this feature. We hope you all find it useful and if there is anything else we can do for international visitors, please let us know. Keep in mind we also allow you to filter on language, so that you only see shows in that language everywhere on the site when logged in.

Last week you did not hear from us as we were tied up working on backend changes for a big feature. So, this week we are very pleased to bring you a feature that took major work to implement...

We've removed the registration requirement for most of the functionality of grepr, including receiving recommendations to better provide the core functionality of grepr to our vistors.

There are still many benefits to registering, such as profiles, feeds and widgets. There are other features as well with more being planned for registered visitors but we wanted to be able to extend the functionality of grepr to visitors who are not ready to register. So, go try out the recommendations!

We hope you all have a great holiday. Hopefully we'll have another set of features just before the start of the new year!
