This is a quick update to let you know version 4 is progressing well.
Lately, we have added many little features to make the backoffice easier, faster, more effective and more efficient to use. Notably, a lot of comment moderation and antispam operations can now be done through quick Ajax calls that eliminate the need to wait for page reloads or to scroll around on any given page.
If you're not looking at CVS activity but still want to keep an eye on what's moving, you can always follow @b2evolution on twitter. We tend to tweet major new additions to the code as we validate them for inclusion into v4.
At this time we are expecting an alpha release of v4 by the end of April.
One significant addition we should have by then is the ability for users to create their own blog if the admin gives them permission. New users will also be able to get a blog created for them automatically.
