bitBulletin 1.1 has been submitted

After a long hard working week, we have finally submitted version 1.1 to Apple yesterday. This update is going to be HUGE. We literally mean it. We have rewritten a lot of code internally, optimized it and tested it extensively.

We hope to prove to you that this new product is important to us and that we will keep on updating it to make sure it meets our standard of quality.

Here is what update 1.1 will bring:

Fix: Optimized the data extraction engine even more.
Fix: Data encoding fixed. Support for any non-ascii characters is now in place.

Fix: Open first page in new tab.
Fix: Search bar handled properly when logging in and out.
Fix: Error reporting has more information for us.
Fix: Rewrote login/logout code. Way more robust.
Fix: Looping issue, causing double-posts. This should also bring faster data processing.
Fix: Popup menu positioning on iPad.

Fix: Popup menu on iOS 4.2 in landscape view. (known Apple bug)
Fix: Base URL issues.
Fix: Login issue and forum engines using forum.php instead of index.php.
Fix: Logout crash issue.
