We've added a more flexible system for creating scheduled freezes. Previously the only option was to create weekly recurring freezes. You can now have much more customized scheduled freezes for example "Every 2 weeks on a Friday" or "Every 3rd Monday of the month".
One-off scheduled freezes are now also possible.
We've added a bunch more options to our Slack integration. You can now unblock / re-block single pull requests through Slack and unblock / re-block deployments. Notifications for these actions are also sent to Slack now.
You can now unblock multiple pull requests when a freeze has been implemented. Previously you could only unblock one, and if you needed to unblock another one you'd have to re-block the first one, which was super annoying. But no longer!
It's now possible to freeze or unfreeze your project via the web API.
To freeze or unfreeze you'll need to send a POST request. Here's an "freeze" request example:
curl -d "frozen=true&user_name=Scooby Doo" -X POST https://www.mergefreeze.com/api/branches/my-org-name/my-repo-name/master/?access_token=[my-access-token]
We have a new logo! Not sure what to name him yet. Freezy McFreezeface?

From now on, only repository administrators may:
