Protopage v2.0 released

Dear Protopagers,

An enormous THANK YOU to everyone that has written in with comments and suggestions – we have developed a dizzying email backlog which we aim to power through to send out as many personal thank-yous as we can. (We always try to respond to critical tech support requests within 24 hours).

Please keep the feedback pouring in – there are very few feature requests that don’t make it onto our road map – and we prioritize features according to demand. Every request sent in to us on our feedback page gets categorized, prioritized and assigned to a team member – so send in your brain dumps and we’ll make it happen!

We’re pleased to announce an array of new Protopage features:

Keep track of headlines from major news organizations and blogs
  • Display headlines and article previews
  • Full screen mode (click the maximize button and see what happens!)
  • Choose from hundreds of feeds in our directory, or add your own custom sources
  • Read / unread support so you don’t need to scan the same set of headlines twice
  • Automatic 60-min refresh so you don’t need to keep reloading your page
  • All cached on our server for super fast page loads
Customize your page more
  • Color code individual panels on your page
  • Change your page’s title (log in and click the top left logo box to change it)
  • Rich text editing for more expressive sticky notes
  • New dynamic pattern backgrounds for a more professional look when at work
  • New color schemes
  • Options to enable/disable panel shadows and to open bookmark links in either a new window or the current window
Organize your information better
  • Spread out your news feed, sticky note and bookmark panels over several ‘virtual pages’
  • Send infrequently used panels to the ‘panel dock’
Share your page with friends and colleagues
  • Make individual ‘virtual pages’ public or private (hover over the box in the bottom right corner of your page and try clicking the ‘padlock’ icons)
  • Give out your page url (e.g. to friends – they’ll only be able to see the virtual pages that you have ‘unlocked’ for them
  • Use the ‘Print’ icon to print sticky notes (from the sticky note editor window)
  • If you run a web site or blog, put our Add-to-Protopage button on your site to make it easy for people to return more often and keep up with your blog entries

Bonus: hover over the time and date display in the top right corner of your Protopage to reveal a pop-up calendar.
