Another milestone -- while most users are still anonymous, the site now has 400 registered users. It's been fun building features for account holders, like API auth and favorites.

Registered users can now use token auth with the API to "own" created items. Anonymous use is still the default. TLDR: On your dashboard, click the "Generate" button; use the token in an Authorization header on your requests, e.g. `Authorization: Bearer a1b2c3d4e5f6g7h8`

The diff feature is now live. Click the "diff" button above an item to use it. You can choose any item from your history to diff it against. Example: dpaste.com/8WPCDRFHL/diff/ABCD

With appreciation I note that a certain anonymous user in Frankfurt, Germany, who has posted about 7000 new items to the pastebin in the last day... has assiduously respected the one-per-second rate limit.

Made some improvements to the geolocation lookup on the "About" page. Using Django's bundled GeoIP2 feature (bit.ly/geo-django) instead of rolling my own made the implementation shorter, more robust, and -- thanks to local datasets from MaxMind -- faster.

Before pastebins were invented, people had to share code on scraps of paper. It wasn't pretty.

Fun milestone: Since the launch of user accounts four months ago, 300 users have registered. Anonymous use is still most common by far, but I like seeing people take ownership too.

New feature: Optional public profile.

As a registered user, you can activate a profile page that lInks to your ten most recent items pasted.

Your username as shown on items you post, becomes a link to your profile.

If you later disable this setting, your profile will become private again.

You can preset syntax/expiry/title by passing one or more of these URL parameters:

dpaste.com/?syntax=modula2

dpaste.com/?expiry_days=365

dpaste.com/?title=My+new+code

(These will temporarily override default syntax or expiry set in preferences.)

Bugfix: User prefs for default syntax and expiry now preset the form as they should.
