- Lead Author Field added. Many have asked recently for the ability to call out a specific author's byline on a story that may have multiple bylines. We have now added a new (non-required) field called "Lead Author" that can be accessed in your templates using the story.lead_author field from the story model. This effectively allows you to designate one author who is the main contributor, while still using the bylines field to call out other contributors to the story.
- Slugs not changing when a story is copied, resulting in identical slug save error. When copying a story on multi site instances, the slug was being copied with the story, but was not being changed to reflect it as a copy, which was leading to errors when saving due to not having a unique slug. This has been updated to append the sitename to the slug when it's copied.
