Author profiles connected to accounts

We've talked about it for a long time, but not done anything about it. But finally, it's done. The file author profiles are now connected to the user accounts.
This will make it possible to modify the information on these pages directly on the site using a normal login, instead of having to mail email@example.com. In the beginning, you will only be able to modify the name shown on the author information page - but we will update this with more features over time.
We have automatically connected all user accounts that had identical email addresses as an author profile to that user account. All other users will manually have to attach their author profile to their user account, using our normal "secret code is mailed out" method.
If you have any questions regarding your author profile, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
So how do you get to it? Enter Your Account, then chose Manage File Author Profile.
