BioStar 1.2.17, Feb 18, 2013
We have added a number of optimizations to improve the site performance. Our unofficial benchmark is to reduce page creation to under one second. We have also made a number of changes to the static data serving: all transmitted content is now compressed and the templates are cached within the server. Combined these should lead to a noticeable improvement in the page loading times.

BioStar 1.2.15, Feb 1, 2013
Two new sections added to the user profile. Upvoted Posts and Supporters
The former shows a subset of a user's posts that have recently received upvotes. The latter shows a subset of the users that have recently voted for posts created by the user. The userlist is both randomized and is only shown if a user has at least 10 upvotes.
BioStar 1.2.13, Jan 17, 2013
We added the ability to restrict posts by time interval as well as attributes such as votes, views etc. Two new categories have been added "Best Of" which is just a way to quickly find the best posts of the week. The second category is Forum where meta-discussions can take place.
If you see odd layout then you may need to refresh your CSS: Hold shift and click reload to clear the old version out of your cache.
Or click the CSS and press reload after it has been loaded http://www.biostars.org/static/biostar.less.css
We will make a change so that this will not be necessary in the future.
