    - Group creation is disabled for non-admins, and non-official groups are no longer listed in group search. You can still get to all non-official groups by using their URI, and if you're in them you'll still be in them and have them listed in your dropdown.

    - Some backend changes in how we handle builds. This just makes us happier and doesn't reflect on you at all, except it was the reason we had that hiccup when deploying.

    Most notably, you can limit it so you only find out if someone you're a fan of mentions you, which I anticipate some superstars like say @myininaya, @amistre64 and @satellite73 will probably want to use.

    Oh look, a slight issue with our parser hehe. Also worth mentioning, this is mostly the work of @farmdawgnation with some collaboration from @mattfeury , design all by @darthsid as usual, and the fact that it's not super-incredibly buggy is thanks to @msayer3 . Enjoy!

    I guess the @ mention only works if you specify the full user name after it - does it handle prefix matching, e.g. will this work for myininaya: @myin?

    So some notes on the matching for @ mentions... You can either have the follow with a colon or a space. So @asnaseer: will work but @asnaseer. won't, because periods are valid pieces of usernames. We'll be working on a way to try and streamline that, if possible in the future.
