    • Improved home page with dashboard;
    • Layered view based on favourite categories/events;
    • “Stub events” with no date;
    • Easier event creation/invite workflow;
  • Integration with CERNBox/ScienceMesh

Future :crystal_ball:

  • Version 2 of the REST API: per-application user tokens, granular scopes, endpoint versioning, OpenAPI support;
  • User Interfaces
    • Markdown-based minute editor
    • Improvements in material editor (e.g. better drag and drop)
    • Responsive interfaces that work OK on mobile
    • Greater Accessibility (screenreaders, colourblind users, etc…)
