Hey customers! We have now officially released 5.1 for all new customers and have started the process of moving our existing customer accounts to this new release.
I'm excited to announce some cool new features coming soon. Version 5.1 is now in our Quality Assurance phase. This means we're heating it up to see if it can withstand heat, wind, hail, and snow (ok, we're based in Vermont).
