Biggest changes in this release is the addition of the "Sign in with Google" option. This gives the option to anyone with a Google account the ability to sign into the site with that account instead of going through the normal account creation process. It's a neat feature and hopefully some users decide at some point to use it. The one big advantage the "traditional" Disc App accounts have over these accounts is the option to "Remember me" on log in so that you do not have to log in again next time you visit the site.

Another change worth mentioning is the addition of a Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions.
