I'm relieved to announce that I've finally managed to get the new fmscout.com version out in public.

It's something that was being planned on paper since April. Planning involved actual research, admitting mistakes, regular brainstorming and endless days of joy/anger/despair. I won't get into any more details about the process though.
I know I'm late but better late than never, right?

What is this upgrade about?

I have a quick answer on that:
  • Performance (as in speed; faster loading)
  • Usability (as in ease of use; user friendly)
  • User Experience (readability, system efficiency, better interaction)
My goal has been the same for years: to improve this place and make it the best it can be. I firmly believe it has great potential (ability) and the current upgrade is a big step forward.

Is that all? Any NEW features?

My main concern was to get the new version out with all basic features from the past. Since this is out of my way, I can now concentrate on tweaking and adding stuff as we go.

New and exciting features are already scheduled but haven't been applied yet. I'll be slowly adding most of them until the end of this month (November 2011).

I think I've found a bug! What to do?

It's possible I might have overlooked something while working on the actual upgrade process in the past 3 days, since I've only slept for like 5 hours overall in order to pull this whole operation off.

Rest assured no data has been lost during the transition.
Whatever issues you might encounter, please report them here (on this thread)...
or email me at stam [AT] fmscout [DOT]

Come on! Reveal some upcoming new features!

Alright, I'll name a couple of features you can expect to be working very soon:
  • FM Insider (social scouting)
  • FM Scout Alliance (worldwide affiliates)
  • FM Network (the best content around the scene)
  • Verified FM Buyers (from our official store)
Make sure to check out our Real World section for some cool new additions already.

Cool! Can I join your team?

Sure you can. We are a small team at the moment, and we'd definitely like to welcome new additions to it. You'd have to prove yourself on the site first though.
In the next few days, I'll be writing about how to become a member of our team.

Any news on Genie Scout 12?

Yes. First version will be ready to be released during the next week, most likely. Our newsletter followers will be the first to get a download link, so make sure you sign up for it here.
