Release 17.2 - Key Features

Multiple Simultaneous Connections / Fast Switching

You can now have connections to multiple sections *at the same section level* open simultaneously. E.g., you can be connected to your “A Pack” in one browser tab, and “B Pack” in another browser tab.

Another outcome of this change is that if you go to “Account” | “Use another account”, and switch logins (e.g., from “A Pack” to “B Pack” it now doesn't have to do a complete sync! I.e., data is now persisted on an account-by-account basis, where it used to be persisted on an edition-by-edition basis (i.e., you could only store the details for the most recent Pack account you connected to).

What motivated this change (apart from the nice ability to have multiple accounts open simultaneously, and to be able to fast switching), is that some people (primarily Safari users) were having trouble signing in as they were getting the dreaded “This login is not associated with any Scouts” bug, for which the best work-around was to use a better browser.
