Even though most of our efforts are focused on developing Version 2.0 which is very different from the existing version it’s not lost on us that you deserve the features you request developed and launched. So today we are bringing two of the most requested features to Freedcamp. To-Do Description and SSL encryption.
To-Do Descriptions: When you start typing a to-do you will be presented with a textarea where you can enter any amount of information to help whoever is assigned to the task to complete the test in its entirety.
SSL Encryption: Just because we are free doesn’t mean we want you to miss out on any of the features our paid competitors have… so we are bringing SSL for free! Yep, a feature that can cost you between $20-299 is now available to you for the price of $0. This is to show you how serious we are about bringing you the very best project management that is more than affordable. To enable this functionality go to your account settings page and check the SSL checkbox. You will be logged out and when you log back in you will be in a completely encrypted page that protects you from those prying eyes! Unfortunately the meebo bar does break the encryption, so if you would like to use the full SSL you have to disable it from account settings, we are working with meebo to fix the issue.
If you don’t use the meebo bar we highly suggest turning it off as it will make pages load 2-3 times faster. The meebo bar is about 900kb download on page load.
We hope you enjoy the features and of course never hesitate to give us feedback in help.freedcamp.com!
We are happy to announce that progress on version 2 is in full steam, we have new developers in the Freedcamp team who are working hard to maintain the current version and build the very best project management system! Our third-party developers who are building the mobile applications are indicating that progress is going smoothly, so let’s hope you are able to access Freedcamp from your phone soon.
Thanks to the hard work of our users we are also bringing 3 more languages with this release of Freedcamp! Russian, Bulgarian, and Dutch are now available for you from the Account Settings page. That’s more languages than pretty much any other PM system out there… yours for free. We do want to take a minute and thank the people who made this possible, we highly appreciate your help. Please reply to this blog entry to help us translate in even more languages! We would especially appreciate the help in translation to Portuguese.
