  • We fixed a bug that prevented a News Digest from being sent.



  • We fixed several errors in the News Digest source configuration.



  • The Linchpin News Digest email didn't respect the theme setting to only show header background images on the dashboard and showed them regardless. It knows better now.

  • The Linchpin News Digest content configuration wasn't saved reliably. It is trustworthy now.



  • Sending the News Digest failed under certain circumstances. It doesn't anymore. 


Create multiple news digests

New features

  • Personalize your newsletters! It's now possible to send out more than one News Digest, addressed to different user groups.


  • Linchpin News Digest stubbornly refused to write audit logs. Our Devs were even more stubborn and convinced it to work again.
  • When trying out the preview of Linchpin News Digest before saving a configuration, there no longer is a misleading error message.


Display header background image in mails


  • News Digest emails now contain not only the site's logo, but also its header background image.
  • We changed the user interface to be gender neutral in the German version.


We moved the admin menu entry.
