End of Beta for Publisher and My Files

As expected, the new Publisher and Download section have left Beta and are now the default interfaces. The “Download” item in the navigation bar is now this new My Files section, containing all your purchases, published products, and uploads. You will still be able to use the old Product Manager and Download page for the next 1-2 months, but then they will go offline. You can navigate to these pages from a link on the bottom left of the page when you are in the Purchases and Download section or the Publisher.

Since these are stable, we’ll be coming out with blog posts, videos, and upgraded Knowledge base documents on the new systems-  from basic how to’s to tips and tricks that aren’t obvious.

We’ve also rolled out a couple of smaller upgrades this week that you might have noticed. There’s a new footer and Company Info Pages in the new style.  “Finally, a new footer!” I can hear you screaming with excitement. Perhaps not the most exciting new feature you wanted, but these are steps on the way to simplifying the basic navigation of the site. We’re going to be pulling certain things out of the navigation bar and just having them in the footer. That way the navigation bar can include only the more important and regularly used links. Making these changes in multiple releases makes it easier to deliver the end result.
