It has been awhile since we've had a CurseForge update, but the team here has been quite busy especially since we are moving into a new office. We should be returning to our normal two week updates now. Let's get the ball rolling with our latest update.
We have updated the homepage of CurseForge today! The sleek new design ushers in a new face for CurseForge and its communities portals. Our goal was to highlight our communities along with their amazing projects, get authors signed up quickly, and still provide these wonderful updates. We feel we've hit all those points and hope you do as well. Plus, it is fully responsive for all authors on the go. For those who still want to know if the old site is still operation, it is still there. You can find it at http://legacy.curseforge.com.
Dashboard - We have released an initial version of our Dashboard feature. For our initial launch, it is just a collection of all your current issues on a site, but we have plans to extend it to projects, analytics, and other neat things. If you do not see Dashboard in the top nav, please reach out to your nearest CurseForge moderator to enable the module.
Issues - We have overhauled the look for project issues. Our new interface provides a better look and feel, plus it is mobile friendly.
Site - Mobile responsive is here. The other web portals should be updated soon as in they will all be responsive by 11/11.
Projects - Table of Contents will now hide if there is only one header tag.
Welcome to our first CurseForge update presented by Telshin (me), the Director of Web. One of my big initiatives with heading up the CurseForge project is to inform the community on things we have going on behind the scenes and to let you know when we deploy new features/fixes to CurseForge. Our main goal is to make the life of an author easy by providing the best platform to interact and distribute their creations to the community. Over the course of the next few months, I hope our new features will do just that. Without much further ado, I present our deploy notes for Oct 1, 2015.

Welcome to the author portal. We will be posting articles here about how to navigate the site, what project requirements are, the rewards program and API documentation. Under the "Knowledge Base" button above you will find some helpful information on what is needed to start a project and get it approved. Under the "Rewards Program" button you will find information about how the author reward system works and taxes (a necessary evil).
We will be posting more articles as we merge sites into this newer platform. If you see a topic you feel we have missed that you would like covered please use the feedback bar to the right. If you have a question about something in one of the articles or feel something needs clarified you can comment on the article or give us feedback using the bar to the right.
We hope this site will help explain the systems and features in place better and make it a bit easier to know what we need for project approval.
