Releasing pretalx v0.3.0

Jan. 17, 2018

As the first pretalx release in 2018, we're introducing pretalx v0.3.0, with some features, and some bug fixes. ## Features Speakers can now be marked as "arrived", helping you see when somebody is still missing shortly before their talk. Attendees can now download an ical file containing all talks of a single speaker, which will also be helpful for speakers themselves. We added API endpoints with information regarding speakers, and generally provide more information in various API endpoints, for example speaker biographies, and answered questions. ## Bug fixes - Non-superusers could not access the email sending form. - More than one event stage could be shown as active in the event overview dashboard. - Trying to look at entered submissions without being logged in produced a server error instead of a 404. - If notifications about new submissions were turned on, they were sent to the submitter instead of the organizer.

First pretalx release – 0.1.0!

Nov. 1, 2017

pretalx has just matured enough to reach its first release version – v0.1.0 is here, and you can now install pretalx with as little as a `pip install pretalx`! After eight months of intense development, and having been used by at least two finished and one ongoing event, we think pretalx is ready to have regular releases, although we will keep them zero-based for now. Releases are great! Every release will be tested, easily installable via `pip`, and comes with a verifiable signature! You can find further details on our [security](/security) page
