    Hi guys, Most of this update consisted of minor bug fixes, including a maps "fix" for IE 8 such that the map won't jump all over the place. The one new feature in this update is a "Streak" widget that displays the consecutive days you did a certain activity. If you customize your summary page, you'll see it on the list of widgets that you can add to the page. This is a very experimental feature. It does not consume much server resource to come up with the value. However, there are two major limitations: - I wanted to allow you to specify a minimum distance or duration for the streak but I'm not able to do so. It only considers if you did a certain activity on each day. It is possible to do that, but the server will have to do a whole lot more work to get that. - This is a useful feature for groups that promote consecutive days of running. However, I couldn't figure out how to count the streaks for multiple people at the same time. I could do it for one member at a time, but that too is very costly for the server. For now, you'll have to accept these limitations. If you're a database guru and know how to do this efficiently, drop me a note. eric :-)
