Fixes

Hide past segments in Bevy Virtual Conference agenda

Now in Bevy Conferences, we bubble up what's happening now to the top of the agenda. We hide the past segments behind a button so they are out of your view but there if you want to look back.

Horizontal layout on the stage and sessions view when screen sharing

We're ensuring that multiple speakers are seen on stage even when someone is screen sharing. We've adopted a horizontal layout view to ensure you can see who's talking and the screen being shared.

Improved 3 person grid view in Bevy Virtual

We used to show 3 people in one horizontal row. But, your feedback said that was too slim and vertical. So, we've adjusted it to be stacked. 2 rows with 2 cards on top and 1 card on the bottom. Keep the feedback coming!

Issues with attendee list count in Safari

In safari, the list of attendees didn't always reflect the number of people that are there. Resolved!

Redirect an anonymous user to the login page when trying to access a Bevy Virtual event

Some users were visiting event pages while logged out but not realizing they jsut needed to sign in in order to join the event. So we've added a redirect to help get them to the right place.

Agenda times 

Agenda times in Bevy Virtual Conference are now displayed in your own time zone.

Screen sharing display

Sometimes, the presenter was showing as talking even though someone else was contributing to the conversation in Bevy Virtual. We tweaked this to make that problem go away.

Include both partners and sponsors in Booths agenda creation for Bevy Virtual Conferences.
