Stack Exchange API V2.0 Public Beta

More than a year and a half ago we unveiled the first version of the Stack Exchange API to the wider world.  Since then we’ve had a minor point release, improved app and script listing, and shared some statistics about the consumers of our API. I’ve been pretty pleased with version 1.1, stackexchange.com and our chat…

Careers Employer Beta Underway

The CV side of careers.stackoverflow.com has been reasonably complete, ever since we added free public CVs.

Server Fault Public Beta Launches

Q: How do geeks know it’s a holiday? A: Because the Google logo changed. Yes, I said we’d launch Server Fault on the 25th, completely missing the fact that the 25th happens to be Memorial Day, a major holiday that most businesses observe, at least here in the United States.

If you’ve been trying to log in to the serverfault.com private beta and haven’t been able to, here’s probably why: You use Google’s (otherwise excellent) OpenID support on Stack Overflow.
