The new release is now live at https://peakd.com

![release_cover_2021_06_01.jpg](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/peakd/23tS2bqoaD4CxPADDAxsarFCkYRHHhFubPR4eXcxdGagL2Ak7d3Lr13d4YCePLPTsnAaF.jpg) #### 1. Default/Required Beneficiary account for Communities A community can now define a 'default' or 'required' beneficiary for posts published in that community. This option is not supported at the chain level (or Hivemind), so keep this in mind if you want to enable it. Probvably the only community using this feature at the moment is [PhotoGames](https://peakd.com/c/hive-146701). When this option is enabled a label will be shown on the community rules: ![image.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/peakd/23ydVgLHPXNthY6xzWT8boYRB5Ka3XoP9YSx69hMpB1e7EXRd2TnQdcA7T6nMq7hKbrFy.png) ###### Introduce the '@peakd.bot' account to automatically handle posts not using the required beneficiary account If you want to automatically mute posts not respecting the required beneficiary setting you can add the @peakd.bot account as a community moderators and it will take care of it. ![image.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/peakd/23uRKjMY5AFdXPSGPeVE7SY9A3PcdrSL6YvgAjBv2aQuiGAKNMGcLBLw1bGFxdrBK34uD.png) *This is still and experimental feature, so feel free to report any issues you notice* ;) #### 2. Other Communities Improvements ###### Support public Templates in communities Communities can now define public Templates (owned by the community `hive-000000` owner account) that are available to their users when they want to write a new post: ![image.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/peakd/23wgaTg2AHFAUWyBNZzvWmbBdvwsv7gusdEMhFS8APfpAYPpRHMqZk6nUDLxXSF2yx45f.png) Only templates marked as 'PUBLIC' will be available in the dropdown. You can mark a template as public on this page: https://peakd.com/me/templates. ###### Allow communities to have a Curated Collections (CCC) page Similar to what is already available for user pages it's now possible to add a collection page to communities: ![image.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/peakd/23uR9aGiUjafHdkUwL6rHt8XFUvvjdT14qvDuUyxaqc7PkNSRJ44hfd1gEBbwR7QX4Rf4.png) ###### Allow up to 20 preferred topics for communities You can now set up to 20 preferred topics for a community ![image.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/peakd/EoyVJhZbq39MxsMsupUaL1GCFwfmmpGCpHBTe6dLYKyrrYGJJJivWm9smzwTBJMd9h8.png) #### 3. Testnet Support This is not completely new as we have supported Testnet in the past, but we did some improvements and better support for multiple login methods. This is intended for advanced users, but if you want you can have a look here: https://testnet.peakd.com **Important:** If you login using Hive Keychain remind to change the RPC node used to cast transactions otherwise you will cast them on the actual chain. #### 4. Notification counter in browser tab It's now easier to see if there are new notifications directly on the browser tab/page title: ![image.png](https://files.peakd.com/file/peakd-hive/peakd/EoCbSnqkEUmVRc7QtnbruGou1A1aaLYqC9qZ5D1hGW2H2451b5VUVtfd8NAZZhV3WPS.png) #### 5. Image viewer for comments Image viewer had been available for images in a post for quite some time, but now you can enjoy the same for images in the comment section.
