LiveJournal is celebrating a birthday soon! 3 years ago on Monday, an infantile LiveJournal, then known as "bradlog", emerged into the world. Keep an eye out for more announcements in connection with this event!
The Bug Hunt regarding the clustering movement is over, and all of the prizes have been handed out. A lot of quirks and a few security problems were found, but they've all been fixed and taken care of.
Every user on the site is now clustered, which means it is now easier to keep the site running faster for longer.
The code that LiveJournal runs on has been upgraded to handle internationalization better, which allows LiveJournal to have a better integration with XML. Now we're able to handle things like XML journal exports and RSS syndication the correct (and easier) way, and it also gives us a bit more flexibility when adding features that deal with external site communications.
LiveJournal will soon be hosting its 500,000th account!
