Assignment Desk v0.8 released. Most significant improvements in this release include a rewrite of voting storage and UI. Votes are stored in a custom table which should better address any future performance concerns. We’ve also moved the voting button to an inline action link enabled with AJAX, a la Quora. Users have the ability to choose how many voter avatars appear, or whether they appear at all. Also, Erik incorporated sorting by age in the Manage Posts view and I exposed this data in the post meta box. Our mission in this context is to start presenting data where it can enable editors to make better decisions on what to cover.
