Version 3.0 released

Posted by Administrator on Sun, Sep 02 2018 01:19:00

After several years in development and a six month beta release, we are thrilled to finally announce the public release of Zuluru 3.0!

Zuluru 3.0 is a substantially new implementation of artisanal, curated, whole-grain code, with a refreshed, zero calorie user interface, organic-adjacent icons, and an enhanced bespoke database schema, but retaining all the award-eligible free-range algorithms that have helped to make it so popular. Zuluru has always been hormone-free, and contains no GMOs or high-fructose corn syrup.

Zuluru 3 beta

Posted by Administrator on Fri, Mar 02 2018 21:35:00

We are excited to announce the beta release of Zuluru 3 on the Hamilton Ultimate Club (HUC) web site. HUC has been using Zuluru since 2014, and has volunteered to be the first organization to use the new version, an almost complete rewrite. Their summer registration opened today, and they wanted to make immediate use of Zuluru 3’s new gender equity options, development of which was largely driven by HUC’s Equity and Inclusivity committee. These options bring greater gender equity to Zuluru, providing individuals with options that empower their choices while protecting their privacy.

Following the HUC launch, Zuluru 3 will be rolled out to other organizations on a schedule based on their particular timing requests, about one a week to start with.

Thanks to HUC for being our “guinea pig”, and kudos for being a leader in the gender equity movement!

Zuluru in Peterborough

Posted by Administrator on Thu, Apr 09 2015 23:08:00

We are pleased to announce today that the Peterborough Ultimate League has joined the Zuluru family. PUL used Zuluru’s ladder scheduling system behind the scenes last summer, and rolled the full system out on a trial basis this spring. Feedback from admins and players alike has been positive, so the decision has been made to adopt it officially.

It seems that each organization has something that they do a little differently from others, and in PUL's case this is the Carbon Flip, an environmentally-friendly method they have pioneered for replacing the traditional disc flip at the beginning of the game with a measure based on the number of cars each team brings to the game. This option has now been incorporated into Zuluru, enabled through a configuration setting. If Zuluru looks "almost right" for your organization, contact greg@zuluru.net and we'll see what we can do to support your "quirks"!

This announcement means that Zuluru is now handling all things ultimate for the “Big Six” of Ontario leagues, and pushes our active user base well over 10,000 people. Welcome PULers!

Version 1.8.0

Posted by Administrator on Fri, Feb 13 2015 00:04:00

We are very pleased to announce the release of version 1.8.0! This is the first version number increment since last April, but don't let that fool you into thinking nothing has been going on. There have been a ton of changes, with over 400 commits to source control, just nothing that felt substantial enough to warrant a new version number. However, support for youth sports and multi-sport sites are now both stable (though surely there will be additional future improvements in both areas), and this is a big enough change to mark a new milestone.

Thank you to Connect Think and First Baptist Athletics of Indianapolis for funding this development and allowing the results to be included in the public release of Zuluru!
