Has the SAP Community development team fallen asleep?

Two months have passed since the new SAP Community release.
Due to the numerous number of bugs/missing features/design flaws, I could expect that the development team would work around the clock to fix these issues.

However, so far, there wasn't any major update/fix (At least none I'm aware of).

Where are you guys?

    Blogs are posted here periodically about changes - the most recent was on Friday - Release highlights as of December 2, 2016.

    More detailed release notes are published here - release notes in the SAP Community wiki.

    Steve.

      Thanks for your reply.
      However, as you've mentioned yourself, the activity stream is quite useless right now.

      Moreover,

      1. At least for now, you cannot even follow the whole "Using SAP.com" tag blogs.
      2. I meant to follow/watch specific author's posts/comments (of Jerry Janda, for example). I used to it in the old SCN, but it doesn't seem to be possible right now.

    Hi, Shai:

    Thanks for the question. As the guy who prepared a lot of the posts mentioned above, I'm always sorry to see my updates aren't always so visible. There is plenty of good advice above on how to keep track of updates. We also tend to put the latest news on the SAP.com/community overview page. And social media shares the updates via tweets and FB posts.

    Of course, that still isn't good enough. The issue of announcements has been raised, as has the need for a general communications page.

    For now, I hope the comments here provide a good starting point.

    Best regards,

    --Jerry

    Here is a link for the blogs with "Using SAP.com" tag, bookmark it in your browser: https://blogs.sap.com/sap/82352407468693968798155/486157991894093153608181816584982/

    I do wish bug fixes happened at faster pace and some old SCN functionality was restored sooner but it is what it is.

    You can also follow the SCN team members (who post the blogs above) to get visibility in your activity stream.

    Hi all,

    Yes, the rotating hero does go pretty fast. I'm looking into slowing it down so the transition doesn't make everyone ill. LOL.

    Stay tuned.

    • I just noticed that one can stop the sliding by moving the mouse nervously over the picture, contrary to how I used to work, I do this with the mouse when the application is not fast enough

    Hi Jelena,

    RE: "...browser is flashing some activity at the bottom and the whole page blinks..." Do you have a screen shot of that? I've not seen this happen before. It would be good to know what it is. Thanks

    • It does not happen today for some reason (because I posted here? :) ). It was too fast to capture a screenshot, unfortunately. Something flashed there like the usual messages, e.g. "waiting for somesite.com..." or "loading". Transition seems to be smooth today. If I catch it again I'll let you know.

      Thank you!
