Coming Soon: the Calendar View for UpStream Projects

“Calendar View” is a new extension we hope to launch in the next few weeks.

This calendar display will allow you to easily see everything that’s happening in a project. You’ll be able to see due dates for all the milestones, tasks, and bugs.

This extension is part of the UpStream roadmap.

Before launching, we’d love to send you a copy for feedback. Are you interested? Read this blog post and then get in touch.

WPTranslationDay: Help Translate UpStream and Get Free Licenses

Did you know that more than half of new WordPress installs are in a language other than English?

The WordPress community is trying hard to grow beyond English. One important factor in that growth is making sure that plugins and themes are available in as many languages as possible.

WordPress users are holding the third WPTranslationDay on September 30.

We’d love to help this effort by making UpStream available in more languages.

UpStream currently only arrives with English files, although Spanish, German and Portuguese translations will launch this month.

We’ll give a free Business license to the Everything Bundle for any more translations.

For example, Client Users couldn’t change their own password, or upload their own avatars.
