July, 27th 2017 - YC-119.7 Database Update
EVE online has been updated to the YC-119.7 release. In line with this, Fleet-Up has been updated with the latest information from CCP. The the latest EVE release includes some new and renamed items such as to support the T3 re-balancing, so please make sure you are using up-to-date named items when importing data -- the latest version of EFT / Pyfa should have the correct names.
The most relevant changes to Fleet-Up are new modules and change to the T3 re-balancing - so you will now be able to import fits that use the new modules. Please note that as part of the update to Fleet-Up all existing fittings have been automatically updated to use the new module names, however, please be aware that the new command modules are different and therefore you will need to update your fittings accordingly.

October, 30th 2016 - Version 1.3.2
Small but not insignificant update to Fleet-Up; version 1.3.2 has been deployed. The new version brings support for citadels natively for timers and operations plus a long-awaited feature to view shopping lists you have worked on and completed.
For a list of changes and fixes please take a look at the change log.
For those of you familiar with the news and updates for Fleet-Up, it will not have escaped your attention that there's been a bit of a drought in the last few months. In fact I've rarely even logged into game more than a few times across 2016. The truth of it is my working and peronal lives have filled up to the point where spending time playing EVE online and developing Fleet-Up has become somewhat of a distant fantasy.
That said, recently I've been feeling the gap left by not playing EVE - or, more specifcally, not being involved in the EVE community - so I've found the time and motivation to enjoy playing the game and spending some time on Fleet-Up. And version 1.3.2 is the result - along with some comedy loss mails and weekly casual searches for flights to Iceland next April.
There's a couple of things I'd really like to put into Fleet-Up in future if I can carve out the time. Firstly, I'd like to do a bit of an overhaul on the top level site layout to provide a more responsive layout and make more use of the space available on more browser windows. Secondly, there's a gaping maw left in some of the features since the in-game browser was removed - the fleet tracker and purchase links no longer work - and I'd really, really like to make those work again through the CREST system.
So there we have it - out of the dust I have crawled back into the universe of EVE-online once more.

April, 12th 2016 - Version 1.3.1 - The Social Release
Fleet-Up version 1.3.1 has been deployed and many of the changes are in some way socially orientated, such as to improve users access to information and be able to respond it. There's some big improvements coming soon in version 1.3.2 regarding tracking and management of fleets and operations but before that comes around I wanted to push out the following updates.
For a full list of changes please visit the change log.
Public & Community Groups Unlimited
A picture of timers and ops on the home page Public and comunity groups are now completely free and unlimited. When a group is set to 'public' as many people as you like can join and there are no restrictions on the number of fittings etc that can be added. One of the things I did not predict when writing Fleet-Up was the rise and growth of public and community roams. Several of EVE's public and community groups have come to use Fleet-Up and features have been put in to support this activity over time. I hope to further support the community through this change.
Some other changes have come into play in the area of public groups. Firstly, the 'search public groups' system lists groups with the largest at the top and also includes links to websites, killboards plus any motd information the group owner has set. The 'pilot reports' feature has been removed for public groups since this type of management reporting is typically reserved for the private affairs of corporations and alliances and public groups lack the API key linking required to make these possible.
Home Page Operations & Timers
Up-coming operations have always been shown on the home page. This concept has been extended to also include timers - meaning users do not need to navigate to the operations or timers board in order to check if there are up-coming events. It is also now possible to accept/decline operations from the home page, meaning hopefully this will be a more frequently used feature and save a few clicks.
Comments Improvements
A picture of comments It is now possible to reply to any comment and also post comments directly through the home page 'activity stream' - this allows for a more social experience when logged in to Fleet-Up. All comments posted are notified to the acitivity stream too, so there's now more chance of other people seeing, reading and responding to your messages.
The ability to post comments has also been added to the skill plan and certificates area since it seemed sensible that users may wish to discuss these items in the same way other as other areas.
User Identities
It is now possible to specify a particular character (added via API) as your primary identity for a given group. This will be particularly useful for users that are a member of multiple groups and are known differently to each. For example, you might have an alt in an RvB corp and your main associated with a particular alliance.
If you have added a character that is the same name as your Fleet-Up 'display name' then that character will be automatically selected as your main identity. To set or change your user identity for a particular group use the identity control on right against each group in the groups area.
A picture showing user identity The groups area been overhauled a little to accommodate the user identities system. The most notable change is that if you enable API-level applications for your group the correct corp/alliance logos will automatically appear next to your groups.
Once a character identity has been selected against a group the name will be used everywhere to identify that member. Additional link options will be also present when hovering over the character's name (example: Wacktopia ) to the following services: EVE Gate, zKillboard, and EVE Who.
Slack Notifications for Shared Operations / Timers
Slack notifications now include timers and operations that have been shared under the Group-Share permissions system. So, if your group receives shared operations or timers shared from other groups then you can receive Slack notifications for them. To set up or manage shares for a group you own visit the groups section, click on the name of the group and then on the 'Group Sharing' tab.

Nov, 17th 2015 - Fleet-Up Version 1.3
Fleet-Up version 1.3 has been deployed. There are several new features in place that will be built on in future.
For a full list of changes please check the change log.
Client Fittings Integration (CREST)
Fittings can now be imported and synchronised with the EVE Online client direclty using the CREST api. Fittings can be imported from EVE to Fleet-Up under the 'Add' dialog by selecting the 'In-Game Fittings' tab. Fittings can also by exported and synchronised to EVE by clicking the 'Sync to Game' button under any fitting.
Before fittings can be imported or exported you must first authorise Fleet-Up to be able to access your fittings when prompted under the relevant sections. Once a fitting has been exported from Fleet-Up to EVE it will automatically stay updated with any changes so long as you maintain your authorisation for Fleet-Up to update your fittings in-game.
Fitting History and Compare
Whenever a fitting is updated a history record will now be written against it. The history is visible under the 'History' tab - if you cannot see the tab there is no history to see yet. The history tab will list all the times the fitting has been updated and which user made the change.
In addition to being able to see the history of changes to a ftting, you can also compare each of the history points to the previous version or the current version. This allows users to quickly see what has changed on a particular fitting over time.
The fitting comparison options are also available under the 'Similar' tab under a fitting. This allows users to compare similar fittings quickly. Finally, a user can compare an EFT/Pyfa fitting from their clipboard by clicking the 'Compare' button against a fitting.
Improved Slack Integration
The Slack integration has been improved to allow a different channel to be selected for each type of broadcast message. Whilst the Slack integration is generally liked, much of the common feedback was that it would be nice to post messages to different channels. By default all messages will be sent to the main channel setting, however, this can be overridden per message type under the 'Group' settings. Click 'Edit' next to your group and then the 'Slack' tab to change the settings.
User Play Time Setting
Users can now specify which times of the day they generally play to help group managers plan and organise operations and doctrine viability. To update your play time settings visit the Account menu. Once a user has updated their play time settings an indication of their time zone is displayed against both the group members list as well as on reports such as the doctrine pilot report.
This feature is still in development and I plan to add more outputs of this information in future. Please get in contact to feed back on this feature or others.
Fleet-Up API New Methods
Some new methods and improvements have been made to the Fleet-Up API. It is now possible to post, update and delete operations and timers through the API. Furthermore, it is now possible to return all fitting items data as part of the /DoctrineFittings endpoint. Finally, most dates are now returned in a more human-readable yyyy-MM-dd date format under parameters suffixed with 'String'.
To learn more about the Fleet-Up API visit the API portal.
Feedback
Please get in contact regarding any of these or other Fleet-Up features, ideas, or issues. To view a full list of changes for all versions please visit the change log.
Fly safe, Wacktopia.
