Indie release notes for FEB 27, 2014

Indie now supports the saving of your customized flight details!

You can still create a route and save it like before. But now, after you search for flights and edit the flight details leg-by-leg (for routes longer than 4 legs), you can save your work.

These flight details are saved in your account. When you return to them, Indie will prompt you to refresh them. If they are still available at the same price, Indie will find them automatically. If any flight is no longer available, Indie will advise you to make a different flight selection for each unavailable leg.

We adjusted the expiration time for search results from 2 hours to 1 hour.

We fixed a few bugs, including some country flags that were not showing properly on Indie.

We re-wrote our code to make use of the updated Mailchimp API and improve our integration.

We made it more difficult for bots to use our services.

We added our first helpful message that comes up while you are waiting for a search.

We officially stopped supporting Internet Explorer 7. Sorry. We support Internet Explorer version 8, 9, 10 and 11.
