Introducing Activity Feed Improvements, Including Member Status Updates

Last week, we hosted our first Migration Demo and Q&A Webinar. Thanks to Juliet for her awesome Demo and to everyone who attended.

"George, this is awesome as usual. Why did we even have to do this 3.0 thing. They could have hired you to make this work and most all would have been happy. Great job, George.
