New Redesign


We've gone through yet another revision of the Technic Platform and the new design is live. This new look allows more modpacks on a single page vs. the old style list, and the new design works well on *mobile* browsers which is aces. We will be going through and fixing what things we've missed and tweaking as needed.

Technic Merchandise and You: It Is Now Available

Now you can have it! Working with District Lines we've got Technic, Attack of the B-Team and Blightfall merch to those of you that want it. This is also a way to support Technic directly if you're into that. 
Note that the shirts are silk-screen printed and American Apparel, these are nice quality items.

Solder v0.7.3.0 released

Here's the changelogs!

New File Sizes!

Note: This requires a migration! Guide: Updating Solder

This is a completely internal change that required a massive rewrite of our URL/cURL libraries. What this will allow, is the ability for more accurate status bars/information displayed in the launcher during installation/updates. It should help show exactly what file is taking so long on those pesky big modpacks.

The Launcher currently does not support this feature but it will be implemented soon!

New alerts! (jGrowl alerts, Credit to Indemnity83)

Solder has made a big change from those annoying bootstrap alerts to a JS library, jGrowl.

This should be a much nicer change especially when updating builds! Feel free to leave a comment on the Solder issue tracker on the change and if you have any ideas to better optimize the feature.

Revamped unit testing!

Unit testing has been completely revamped to cover multiple database backends (MySQL & Postgres) as well as testing against the new PHP 7 release.

Bug fixes and tweaks

- Completely revamped MinecraftUtils library due to UrlUtils changes. MD5 support has been dropped since this is handled by the Launcher now. Only MC versions are polled.

- Allows the deletion of the first user. Fixes #454 (Credit to EntranceJew)
