    Release Notes: Multi-area support was added to the pollwiki. Configuration of polling divisions was moved from the voter-server to the wiki. The wiki now serves as a user editable database for the voting network. The voter registry was rationalized into a trust server and a front end streetwiki. A proof-of-concept demonstration of vote mirroring was coded. A difference bridge was added for cross-draft patching. An early prototype of a network UI was added as "crossforum theatre". Draft pointers were added in partial implementation of free-range drafting, enabling drafters to work from separate wikis.

User control of OpenID bindings was improved. The format of poll names was standardized in the pollserver and pollwiki. The pollserver UI now accepts pollwiki usernames as voter identifiers. The UI was translated to German.

        Release Notes: The pollserver was coupled with a wiki. Voters may use the wiki to draft legislative proposals and other position statements, while they use the pollserver to vote them up. A link to the help page was added to the top of all pages in the Web interface. Minor bugs in the command line, Web, and mail interfaces were corrected.

            Release Notes: The underlying theory of the system design was documented. Details of the peer-to-peer voting mechanism were defined. Its functional interfaces with society were explained, including its role as a primary electoral system; its effect on the delegation of executive power; and its interplay with collaborative media in the drafting of consensus norms, such as laws, plans, and policies.

                Release Notes: Doubt signaling was implemented as an adjunct to the trust network, serving to indicate suspicious voter registrations. Controls and views of the overall trust network were added to the Web interface. A cache was added to relieve the load on remote geocoding services. Constraints on the length of user input were tightened, closing several security holes. A theory outline was drafted, predicting the rough fit of Votorola in society.
