If you are a regular to the Stories Matter website, you may have noticed some changes to the website that have been made over the last few months – changes designed to make it easier to navigate, more informative, and more enjoyable. The blog has been moved off the main page and can now be accessed through links in the side bar, while contacts, affiliates and affiliates have been listed under the headings “credits” and “associations and links.” Links to individual and group bios now have now been integrated into the text. If there is anything you are looking for that you can’t find, or any links that are broken, please contact us to let us know. These updates have been part of preparations for releasing the latest version of the software – Stories Matter v. 1.5.1. Over the last few weeks, the development team has been working diligently at testing the software and fixing bugs so as to make this version of the application as smooth as possible. As usual, once the application is released, there will always be new bugs to be discovered, and suggestions for ways to improve the software in the future. We encourage you to report these bugs as well as your experience with the application to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Version 1.5.1 of the Stories Matter application is slated to be officially released within the next week or two, so be sure to check back often. We are very excited about this release of the application, and are looking forward to providing oral historians around the globe with this valuable new tool.
