Discourse 1.1.0

Discourse is a discussion plattform. It provides a more fluent and accessible web interface than common bulletin boards or forum software. Discussions are visualized cohesively through scroll auto-loading, are automatically hypertext-interconnected where related, provide dynamic notifications, and are generally unintrusive and simple to partake. Discourse moreover prefers federated/social logins, encourages creative commons sharing, allows easy media embedding per drag and drop, uses a visual MarkDown editor rather than BBcode, is mobile compatible per default, and builds upon an extensive API and a modern search function.
