Juicy new Developer Features!
5 (100%) 3 votes

This weekend saw our eager-beaver engineering and operations teams roll out another release of the Ning Playground. The front-end differences are fairly small this time, but there are quite a few of them: for example, the Ningbar’s easier to get around with “Back” button support and a dedicated user search on the “People” panel.

Other bits of user interface have been tightened up: you can now remove people from your friends list without blocking, and the “Compose Message” form is smarter too.

We also have some nifty goodies for developers: the new logical OR operator gives more power to your Content Store queries, as does the ability to use a friends list as a filter. Best of all, apps can now receive email and process photos and movies from MMS messages.
