Summary & Highlights

Welcome to Linchpin Essentials 2.4!




For this release we put the emphasis on accessibility - or to be more specific on screen reader compatibility. Examples for this are the "add profile picture" button and links to profiles in various places. The "headline with menu" macro and the "action drawer" button both work better with screen readers now, als well as various icons within the Space Directory and the Linchpin Sidebar. 

For Linchpin User Profiles we've added the ability to use several more field types as filters in the user directory. We've also adjusted the logic of link detection to avoid false positives (e.g. for academic titles).

An of course this release also brings a lot of other improvements and bugfixes .

Make sure to check out the full release notes!
