We are speeding forward with the transfer of all learning histories to the new Memrise 1.0 site. We have completed the first stage of this by moving over all of the course data to the new site. Now that this is done, we have frozen the creation of new courses on the beta site, because nothing new will be moved over to the new site, and we don't want any one's efforts to be wasted.
If you would like to test out Memrise 1.0, please go to www.memrise.com and pick a course to try - once you have started a course on Memrise 1.0 it will stop re-directing you to the beta site by default. You will still be able to access the beta site at any time by going to http://memrise.com/beta/home
If you would like to dive straight in and create a new course on Memrise 1.0, please do head here http://memrise.com/course/create/ and get cracking!
Please let me know if you have any questions, or if the course creation manual on Memrise 1.0 doesn't yet have instructions for a use-case that fits your needs - I will add new instructions for you right away.
