All of that is changing now. With all the features on the Glazed 2.4 roadmap completed, it's time to focus on excellence in service. In the past few months I could not manage to write interesting blog posts, extend reach of...

I'm first going to do a cleanup round and shave off features that no one is using. Next, I will improve the UX...
