Today, we are excited to announce the release of v2018.0.0. This release launches 🚀 us out of Alpha into Beta.
We have migrated our backend to the Australian region, meaning faster load times (334 ms to load a unit compared to 1.04s previously), a increase of around 70%! ⏩💯
This means, we can deliver faster content to the majority of our users, ensuring faster and smoother transactions.
Working with another project — Smart Electives has allowed us utilise a better search engine. We are using a system like Google which allows us to search better. Whether its searching ambiguous things from modern culture, all the way to rocket science, we’ve got you fam. 👪
After looking at our user traffic we have decided to make our app more mobile friendly then before, with semester on the sidebar, as well as clearer shortcuts on the toolbar. But, we still recommend you to use a laptop.
That’s right, you’ve heard me. You can now print and email course plans to whoever you like (just don’t spam email your course advisor, our system will kick 👢you off and block 🛡️you).
It’s really great that most of our users are returning to us. That’s why we are dedicated to be as transparent as possible, whether it’s feature requests all the way to issues. We’ve got a new issue form over via https://tinyurl.com/monplanissue and a new Public 🌏tracking board over at Trello for you to monitor and see your issue! https://trello.com/b/oYR5vu8S/public-bug-tracking-board 🐛For our delivery status visit: https://stats.uptimerobot.com/OM9AOf2D0

As one of the many developers on this team, I am very happy to announce our new public release!This is one of latest patches not only going back to our roots and making it better but also bringing the foundations of some key new features which will be present in the application over the next few months.
Version 0.4.0 refines our integration with our API as well as introduction nice and cool features. Most of the updates this time is improving our app through various fixes such as improvements to the server-side as well as other cool features.
