[Guestpost by Arushi Jain, Development Intern on Ushahidi Platform]

Postponing our scheduled v3 beta 9 release, again.

Hey Folks!
Last week, we committed to releasing another beta version of v3 today. However, after some internal deliberation, we have come to a decision NOT to make a release this week. We apologise for any inconveniences caused by this, and commit to getting back to our regular release schedules next week, on 30th October, 2014.

Wait for it….Ushahidi Platform v3.0.0-beta.9 Releases Next Week

Beta 9 Release Postponed To Next Week
Ushahidi Platform v3.0.0-beta.9 is ALMOST out! Thats right, we are moving our regularly scheduled Beta.9 release from this week to next week — next Thursday to be precise. Our Platform product team members are meeting In Real Life (what!) in Atlanta, GA all this week cranking out code, making decisions, and sprinting forward.

Reintroducing Crowdmap
