On March 4th, Flickr finally announced the roll out of a Yahoo independent login system. According to the folks at Flickr and SmugMug, users made cutting ties with Yahoo their priority request.
SmugMug and Flickr will roll out the updated login process to its users in the coming weeks. It is not clear when new users will be able to create Flickr accounts without a Yahoo login. We tried it this morning and are still required to use a Yahoo process for a new account.
