Pulse 2.0? Wow, that's a big version number, I bet it now writes blog posts for you, shoots lasers and takes out the garbage too! Not exactly, but there are some big changes in this release.
Many of you may not be doing much work on your phones or tablets at this point, but I think this will be changing more and more as we go forward and I want Pulse to be capable on any device.
So what might be some use cases for mobile usage? Maybe you just pushed out a blog post and noticed a typo but you're away from the desktop. Just log in from your phone and make the edit. Or perhaps you're on the road and want to check stats for the day and see how the site's doing. The stats page looks great on even a phone so you can see what's happening anywhere. And since version 1.9 added emailing of comments, now you can take action on them more easily. Let's say you get an email notification about a new comment on your blog but it turns out to be spam or something offensive. Just log in from your mobile device and delete the comment. These are just a few ways you can take advantage of a mobile optimized admin.
The gallery has always been available in two formats, Slider or Thumbnails (Lightbox). But in order to switch back and forth you had to change a setting on the settings page to get the different embed codes. Now, the setting is removed and both embed types are available right from any gallery you create. Not only that, but the preview button will show both gallery styles so you can see how each will look before you choose which to use.
New Stat - Users Online
The stats page features a new metric, users online. This tells you how many people are currently browsing your site. This can be useful after you launch a new product or send out a press release to monitor traffic in real time.
-Redactor upgraded to 8.03 and blocks now auto adjust to the height of your content
-Formatting bug fixed in comment emails
-Multiple thumbnail galleries on one page now works
-Jpegs uploaded to blog/blocks are automatically resized to 800px max (Prevents clients from uploading massive 2500px pics)

The normal upgrade procedure applies for this version, but there is one new folder that needs to be created inside of the "data" folder. In "stats", add a folder called "sessions".
