Good News, everyone!
Version 3.4.0 alpha has been released. Changes in this version:
- Infrastructure support for several new modules (personal blog entries, achievements and problem content i18n). This modules are not yet activated.
- Several bugfixes, mostly in management.
- Problem stats are now shown in the problem description page in addition to the 24h volume.
- Faqs are now administered dynamically. Feel free to suggest new faqs if you feel they are common in your institution, they may interest someone else too!
- Maintenance mode, allowing for gracious shutdown of the system.
- Metro Web Services have been eliminated. This functionality will be offered through REST services using JSON rather than XML, which is a very much lighter footprint in server cpu and memory usage.

A note on the achievements module: Achievements are not yet being tallied. We would like to assign them to users retroactively, so this may take a while. Users can, however, give feedback on the page location, the image style (do you have any other, more fitting image for each achievement?) and the kind of achievement they would like to see in the system. Feel free to send your suggestions to coj@uci.cu, as always.

While this version doesn't have a very impressive changelog (and that's why this isn't a full number version) this was a necessary step to merge several codebases that were allowed to drift from each other a little too far. Merging is one of the most destructive actions a software project can undergo, so we decided to merge in bits to minimize damage. We would like to assure our users that all precautions are being taken to safeguard personal information and activity records in the system. Any problem you may experience or see in the system are a reflection of how we use the data, but in no way do they reflect any loss or adulteration of the underlying database. This is not the kind of changes we are making, and you can rest assured that core functionality of the system and the resulting information of your work in it will remain unchanged until further notice.
This process of merging, bugfixing and progressive module activation will continue until June, at which time we hope the system will be ready for its 4.0 version, and we will enter a function freeze to focus on enhancement suggestions, bugfixes and side projects that have been neglected for too long.

sería bueno que se publicaran los ejercicios de las IOI, CIIC, y concursos nacionales de preuniversitario (CNC) en el sitio
