We are happy to announce the release of Steemit 0.1.170121!
Here are a few noteworthy key upgrades for your experience on steemit.com.
In-browser Push Notifications (with @-mentions support!)
We have a new push notification backend which allows for user mentions directly on your desktop. It supports the standard notifications as well as mentions and transfer alerts.
Your browser will ask for permissions. (Currently, only Chrome & Firefox are supported)
Improved search engine results for profile pages
Your steemit.com profile page will now have greater visibility in search engine results. Your unique meta data is compiled from your username and profile fields. Steemians with detailed descriptions should see increased traffic via search engines.
These refinements also trickle down to social sharing. For example, sharing your profile page on twitter will now contain your unique brand/profile data.
