New code imminent on the Archive of Our Own!

A big deploy is imminent!

We’ll be deploying a whole bunch of new code to the Archive of Our Own this afternoon (North American time). There are lots of shiny new features in this release:

  • New front end! (The Archive is having a facelift and will look a bit different after this deploy.)
  • New collections and challenges code!
  • New tags code!
  • USER ICONS!

Full release notes coming after the deploy.

We’ll post to the AO3_Status Twitter before we begin the deploy, and again once it’s complete. The site will be down for a (hopefully) brief period while we deploy, and will return with many shiny new things!
