After very hard work, Flock’s elves finally came up with Flock 1.1 even though it’s still a Beta software. Caveat, this is a Beta version of Flock 1.1, and uses a unique profile. The Flock 1.1 Commercial Release will Not use this profile.
This means that any favorites, feed, or preferences you set using the Beta version of Flock 1.1 will not appear in the commercial release.
If you are a regular user of Flock please consider the following: This is a clean install. This means that when you install this build, you will not have your previous Flock favorites, feeds, or personal info. This info is not deleted, it’s simply not accessed.
The commercial version of Flock 1.1 will return to using your normal Flock profile. In other words, once Flock 1.1 is commercially released, your original Flock favorites, feeds, and personal info will return. Anything added while using the BETA version of Flock 1.1 will not be migrated.
Having said this, let me go ahead and tell you what Flock 1.1 has waiting for you:
- Webmail Integration—Yahoo! Mail and Gmail are now supported services in Flock. You can now share almost anything in Flock via your preferred Yahoo! or Gmail webmail service, including photos, videos, rss feeds, and content within web pages. You also now have another reason to use Flock’s Web Clipboard. If you want to easily embed images in your webmail, just drag them to the Web Clipboard, open your mail compose page, and drag the image directly into the body of your mail. Voila!
- Friend Activity Feed—Flock’s Friend Activity feed gives you visibility into your friend’s actions on Flock supported services (what they do elsewhere is their business). Conveniently located in MyWorld, the Friend Activity Feed lets you know when your friends have uploaded photos, changed their profile or status, or twittered something.
- Picasa Photo Integration—The Picasa photo service has been added to the available services in Flock 1.1. Upload up to 1,000 photos at one time to Picasa and view your and others’ Picasa photos in the Flock’s Media Bar.
