Microsoft is automatically updating Internet Explorer for Windows 7 users from version 9 to version 10 today. IE 10 has not been certified for Commonspot authoring, and access to the authoring dashboard will fail. Paperthin is working on a patch for this, but for the interim you'll need to use Firefox for Commonspot authoring on Windows. Alternatively, you can use the developer tools built into IE to switch to the IE 9 profile. You can access the developer tools via the F12 key.

Firefox 10 ESR will update to version 17, unless you have turned off auto-updating in Firefox. Version 17 may introduce problems with copying/pasting text in the Commonspot text editor. If you need to re-install FF 10 ESR, you can find it here:
You can change how Firefox handles auto-updating via the Options (Windows) or Preferences (Mac) > Advanced tab. By default, it would be set to automatically install updates.

The option to include a Vimeo or Youtube video in the blog's text block is now available in the SCM blog. To embed a video, you'd use a shortcode similar to those used in Wordpress.
