We've had quite a few reports recently that Cube Tutor has been running fairly slow during peak periods. This is due to a increase in traffic (awesome!) combined with a server infrastructure that could probably do with being upgraded (damn!). Unfortunately it costs quite a bit to run a live server and we don't yet have the means to upgrade it. However we are currently working very hard on the next major functional release that will give you guys the ability to support Cube Tutor financially through something a bit more than donations whilst giving you some cool stuff in return :). More on that in a future update.
Thankfully however there is still quite a bit that can be done without upgrading the server, so hopefully we should see an improvement after this release. Nothing has changed from a functionality point of view but we would be interested to hear if you experience problems on the Cube Index, Draft or View List pages as these have changed the most under the covers.
New Featured Cube! Check out JonMc's Tribal Cube through the home page.
I've spent the last few weeks focussing on infrastructure improvements. The site is enjoying nearly a day-on-day increase in visitors and I need to make sure that it can handle everybody. However I do have a smallish new feature set for you to (hopefully) enjoy today.
Those with a keen eye will notice that the formerly named 'Cube Index' has been expanded to a larger 'All Cubes' section of the site. This gives me a bit more scope to look at cross-cube functionality in this area.

Bug Fixes/Minor Improvements
Fixed styling of Getting Started page.
Deleting cube blog entries no longer causes an error.
New Featured Cube!
A relatively small release, but as ever I am constantly working to improve your experience on Cube Tutor. Please get in touch if you have any comments/ideas/suggestions!
Internet Explorer Support – You can now access Cube Tutor in version 9 and up of Internet Explorer. Those of you who are familiar with web development will know that the older you go with IE, the more quirks you have to deal with. If you are using version 8 or lower then please consider upgrading, and if you can't upgrade please do get in touch and let me know. If tons of people still want to use IE8 for good reasons then I will endeavour to bring it into the fold.
Blog Posts without Cube Updates – You can now write a post on your blog without having to update your cube at the same time. Just login and you'll see a 'New Blog Post' bar at the top of the blog page.
Images in Blog Posts – You can now upload an image to accompany each of your blog posts, whether in conjunction with a cube update or not. Check out my blog for an example – www.cubetutor.com/cubeblog/1
Edit Blog Posts – There's a new pencil icon next to the delete icon for blog posts. You can use this to modify blog posts as you please.
Autocard for Blog Posts – You can now use the traditional [card][/card] tags in your blog posts. This was the Easter Egg from the previous release! Either type the tags in directly or use the '[autocard]' link. This will show the image from the card in your cube if you have it, otherwise it will show a default card image. It is not currently supported in comments or forum posts – coming soon!
Minor Updates/Bug Fixes

Fixed #cubetutornews feed. The Twitter API changed, requiring an update to Cube Tutor.
Adding missing Vindicate Judge Reward card.
You no longer get a nasty error when trying to load a cube deck that doesn't exist.
The Cube Size on the Pimp Chart now shows the total filtered size when using the filter.

Some minor improvements to Tag Colouring in My Account.
Thanks to the great feedback that you guys have sent my way after Wildfire 1.0. I've spent some time over the last few days fixing bugs and making improvements.
Fix an issue where adding a tag with a non A-Z, 0-9 character sometimes caused an error (depending on the character).
Fixed an issue where it was not possible to apply a colour to a tag that had a trailing space, for example 'my tag '.
Removing a colour from a tag now works properly.
When all instances of a particular tag are removed, the colour no longer appears in the key on the View List page.
Added 'Misprint' and 'English' pimp options.
Keep those bug reports and feature requests coming in!
