We've completed the upgrade of Portal and the underlying applications to Rails 3.1. This should lead to improved performance and stability going forward, as well as enhance our ability to improve the user experience more frequently and quickly.
Some new customers may have experienced issues with setup of their first project. We're running programs now to fix those projects that were set up improperly, so you should be able to use them shortly. Subsequent projects should have set up without issue.
As part of the dependencies for the upgrade, we also upgraded Git to version 220.127.116.11, the most recent release. We're still working on Git over HTTP/S and will announce when we have released that.
