Changelog for April 18

It's been a while since our last update... So here's what we've been up to:

The Big stuff:
* Private Messaging - Users can now send other users private messages.
* Revamped Dashboard - The new dashboard builds upon the old dashboard and adds several other pages. Users can now see their Inbox, Profile page and change Notification settings all from one place.
* Threaded comments & threaded discussions - Discussions and comments are now threaded. So users can now reply back on a particular comment or reply on a particular discussion thread.
* Submission status - Users can now change the status of each submission. They can indicate if they are looking for feedback on their submission and also claim a submission that they would like to work on.

Some Small stuff too:
* We've cleaned up the Log In widget a little and made it a little more intuitive.
* Bugfix to allow ASCII characters to be seen properly.
* Bugfix to prevent one user from kicking another user out of a collab.
* Minor code cleanup.

So what's been keeping us busy lately?
* Autocomplete – Instead of having to remember the username of a particular user, the system will autofill the username in the form as you type.
* Adding support for web video linking – Users will soon be able to post submission video that have been hosted on youtube and vimeo.
* Enhanced Project status – Admins will soon be able to state if they are looking for members and what type of members.
