New features

This is a group for LibraryThing staff to announce and discuss new features and other improvements with members. Unlike every other group, we discourage starting new topics, unless you've actually developed a new feature (with or without our help). But anyone can—and should—post replies.

Brainstorming and feature recommendations take place in the recommended site improvements group.
