We released an update to Uvumi.com last night! Here's a summary of what's new:

- Added support for WAV format in song upload interface
- Improved "member count" data in band and group search results
- Added option to the Song Search page to show only songs that are downloadable
- Fixed bug in Groups pages that caused minor browser errors under certain conditions
- Added "Disbanded Date" field for band profiles
- Added permanent URL system for song charts. Now you can go to http://www.uvumi.com/charts/rock and get the current Rock chart, for example
- Fixed bug in scrolling window title in Chrome and IE
- Greatly improved search-by-genre algorithm in the song search engine, and finally fixed the incorrect song counts on the Browse Genres page!
- Added feeds for Uvumi Groups, so new activity that happens in groups you are a member of will appear in your Dash (only for new members and new discussions, but we'll add more soon)
- Added email notification to let group managers know when there are pending requests to join, and also an option to disable this notification
- Increased the maximum number of groups that can be joined to 8 (instead of 3)

I decided to increase the number of groups each member can join because the old limit seemed to restrictive. Maybe we shouldn't even have a limit? I guess we'll just see how things go, and if group activity picks up at all once we get the rest of the notifications and dash updates in place.

Sadly, things have not been moving quickly in terms of improving and upgrading Uvumi.com, and that probably won't change any time soon. I will be making an announcement about the future of Uvumi soon, so check back here for updates, or better yet, subscribe to the Team Uvumi Blog RSS feed.

Talk to you soon,

    Hey Marshall, good to see improvements! I know things might be busy around there, as they are around here, but I hope Uvumi still have its bright future guaranteed. :)
