Too much to explain everything here, so better to leave a link to our blog. If it is not enough and you still have any questions, just ask them in comments.


Congratulations, guys!

However, I just installed this version and noticed that the "user filter" section under "settings" lacks the "add new rule" button. I see no way to add my own rules now. Or am I missing something obvious?

Edit: OK, false alarm, found out how to add rules again.
