Its been a couple of months since our last code update on 2.x. As you all know, we are just maintaining this version of the platform, in preparation for the new version of Ushahidi, dubbed v3, which is currently in Alpha. This means that we aren’t actively building in new features, but only doing bug fixes and taking in pull requests from our community.
Deployment of the week
This week, we recognise the efforts of the team at Raccontalo alla Provincia pavese, mobilising citizens to voice out problems within their environment in the Province of Pavia in Italy.
Happy 2014 from the Ushahidi team. We’re back from the holidays, and hope that all of you had a good break.
Deployment(s) of the week
This week, we recognise two deployments highlighting human rights violations and promotion of equality in the Middle East and in Asia.
Christmas is here early :)! Today, we roll out an alpha release of Ushahidi v3. We know that most of you were expecting a Beta release this month, but we haven’t quite gotten there just yet. No need for sadness though, we’ve made substantial progress over the past month, and have lots of cool stuff added into this Alpha.
Deployment(s) of the Week
This week, we recognise three outstanding projects as deployments of the week.
SardSOS : Emergenza Meteo Sardegna 2013 is a deployment set up to track effects of the deadly Cyclone Cleopatra and subsequent floods and help with emergency efforts.
We are looking for a full-time senior developer to help launch a new project to make crisis data more available to citizens, media, and responders.
