ProudCity Releases

This is the initial release of the ProudCity WordPress platform. It is immediately available for all ProudCity Hosted sites and for download on Github under the GNU Affero GPL v3 open source license.

What changes will I notice?

This is the initial release of ProudCity, so everything is new! Notable features include: a search-focused website; webapp interface for finding answers, paying bills, and reporting issues; social wall to share information across city social network accounts; city services map that pulls from Foursquare and user-entered locations; built-in events calendar; built-in agency and staff contact database.

If you notice any issues with your ProudCity Hosted website after this release, please create a support ticket. If you are using ProudCity Open Source please create a GitHub issue.
