Well, seeing as it's December 1st it was time to push the Holiday Theme live on the website. I figured that the hoopla with the new holiday look would be a good time to roll out the new/beta AP.net for all users as well. That way people get used to it for the next month or so while enjoying the Holiday goodness. I also released the colored themes for the new version - while stripping the old version down to only the plain red (it will stay for a while before being removed toward the end of the year). Also the time to get my holiday themed avatar up on the site. One of these days I'll print more of those to sell.
This is the first time unregistered users will be seeing the new site - so I expect some bugs and stuff to be found and submitted. I'll have to get those done over the next few days. But this is one of the final steps in the roll-out of the new AP.net. It's been ... damn ... like 6 months coming now. It was a pretty massive overhaul of the back-end and front-end of the entire website. It's practically brand new from a coding standpoint.
Still up is editing the old pages to redirect to the new ones (only a few of those), and then doing some code optimizatio ... that will probably be done in the next few days.
I still have to port over the sidekick/mobile version. But when I do that I want to make sure to change up the URL to get you to that page as well ... so that's not happening yet.
Also launched the first "Kitchen Session" track from Valencia - check it out here. The stripped down and raw version of the tunes is what makes it special ... showing exactly what the artist sounds like.
