Hello WhatPulse User,
It's been a very long time coming, but you can now download the first
public beta (ever) of WhatPulse, version 1.5!
There have been a lot of changes since the last 1.4 release, but I'll
try to give you a small list with headliners:
- Pulse Profiles
First, you had accounts, and then you have accounts with profiles.
Profiles are basically ways to separate your different computers. To
read more about pulse profiles, review http://whatpulse.org/pulse-profiles/
In the 1.4 versions, communications with the server went through the
HTTP protocol. In 1.5, all communications go through a new protocol,
that whatpulsed uses. WhatPulseD is more stable, faster, and can handle
way more load then the old way of pulsing.

with the server.

discover the rest of the changes!
Since this is a public beta, we have set up a Bug and Feature Request
tracker on http://whatpulse.org/tracker/
- Currently, the accounts on
this tracker are separate from the main WhatPulse accounts, but this
will be integrated down the road. So feel free to sign up an account and
report anything you notice! To just view the reports that are already in
there, you can also login with username 'guest' and your email address.
The website has been adjusted to fit the new features of WhatPulse 1.5,
so please report anything that looks off on the website as well!
Be sure to pulse and uninstall the old WhatPulse client if you decide to
give 1.5 a go. Remember to create a profile through your control center
if you are an existing user!
You can remove yourself from this mailinglist through the WhatPulse
