New French Circuit & Changelogs

We’ve released a flurry of updates late in August, the most recent and noticeable of which is a brand-new circuit! Earlier today, France was added to the league calendar, meaning it will be available in any new seasons that are generated from today. It is available to race on immediately in Quick Races.
France is in some ways the first truly ‘new’ circuit in iGP Manager, since the new Britain 2019 essentially replaced Britain 2009, rather than representing a totally new entry to the calendar.
More new circuits are coming
We will continue releasing new circuits into iGP Manager, and this is just the beginning. One of the most frequent requests we’ve received from the community is to add new circuits, so we made that one of our priorities for 2019. The fruits of our labour on that project will continue to arrive throughout the remainder of the year - in other words, more tracks coming very soon.
New changelog system
Recently, we also added a brand-new Changelog system to igpmanager.com, so everyone can track all of the work and ongoing updates that take place on iGP Manager. We intend to make this more integrated into iGP Manager in future updates. As not all of the work we do is immediately visible on the front-end in the interface, we hope this will help the community to appreciate just how hard we continue to work on iGP Manager to prepare for the future.
Yesterday, we also released a security update to the iGP Manager websites, increasing security against Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks. To our knowledge, nobody has attempted CSRF exploits of any sort, we simply made an improvement over existing security measures.
Advanced strategy improvements
Work continues on advanced strategy and is set to take a few more weeks. Specifically, we are working to make it possible to change tyres before the start of the race when the weather changes from wet to dry or vice versa. This is the most common scenario which we’ve heard needs to be addressed, when the weather changes between practice locking and the race start.
