Peerlist Mid-August Release • 08.2021

Excited to publish our first changelog… 😃 We launched our closed beta on 5th August. Since then, received tons of feedback, features requests, and bugs. Thank you everyone for making the effort!

This release majorly focused on critical bug fixes, some obvious improvements, and one small yet significant feature, the Peers page: where you can see all Peerlist members who have joined recently.

🚀 Peers page: View & visit profiles of Peerlist members

Peers page: View and visit profiles of Peerlist members
Peers page is a first step towards making Peerlist a community platform.

Now you can see other people who have joined Peerlist recently. Currently, you can view the list and visit the profiles. Next, you will be able to search, sort, and filter the list based on other parameters.

🧰 Improvements

  • Image size for projects increased 1MB to 2MB
  • Improved navigation by adding a main menu in the sidebar.
  • Now automatically display high-resolution Dribbble images.
  • Added some more tools & technologies to the list (18 to be precise). Please let us know which one we’re missing and we will add them in the next release. This will be an ongoing improvement.
  • Added page loaders whenever necessary.
  • Added spinners to inputs when we fetch the list. Eg: Location, tools & technologies, etc.
  • Added empty state messages when the Resume section is empty and when you add your Dribbble profile but don’t have any shot uploaded.
  • Performance and security improvements.
