Introducing the new Ortus Community

Brad Wood
Jan 21, 2021


Hi everyone, great news!  Ortus is rolling out our new Ortus Community site to help consolidate all of our community support and interaction.  As part of that effort, all our Google Group threads have been imported to the new Ortus Community and effective immediately, our Google Groups are closed for further posting.

If you're a member of our Google groups, don't worry-- your user has already been imported into the community forum and as soon as you sign up, you will be automatically associated with all of your old posts so you can pick up your conversations right where you left off!  We've even added single sign on options for GithubFacebookGoogle, and Twitter (coming soon).  If your new account is under a different E-mail address, let us know and we can merge your accounts together.
If you're new to Discourse, you can read an overview of how the forum software works here
So please head over to the new Ortus Community site and try it out.  We're super excited about it and will be using it as a hub for all our community interactions.  If you have any questions or issues, please reach out to us on Slack or Twitter.

qb 8.0.0 was released this past week, and it brings with it a small handful of new features. While this is technically a major release, I don't expect anyone to actually have a breaking change. In fact, I expect this will save you time and headaches as it has for me.
