Today's Updates - February 14th

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all! Here is the stuff to know from the most recent code update we'll see rolling out in the next 24 hours. As usual, brief (fewer than 10 mins total) of intermittent downtime is expected.

This release introduces several new features and bugfixes on the moderation and administration side of things, so I won't bore you with those details, but here are the member-facing issues you'll see addressed:
  • Poll deletion was not functioning. This is now fixed.
  • The page showing what users "own it" / "want it" and "have it" for a product had grown too large and was returning errors. We beefed it up a little - split it into tabs and gave it pagination. This allows it to scale better, and will prevent out-of-memory errors loading it.
  • When the most recent post in a forum was in the "held for moderation" status, it could cause the word "Private" to appear in the last post preview column. This should no longer happen. We'll just treat the most recent valid, viewable post to be the "last post."
  • Immediate subscription updates are designed, by default, not to deluge you with an unlimited number of emails. The default behavior is to pause a subscription after one email has been sent. When you next visit the site, we unpause that subscription and it resumes sending you notifications. This puts some limits in place to prevent a user from being overwhelmed by 100s of emails overnight. However, our last release altered this behavior unexpectedly. We failed to resume notifications when a suer visited the site. The only way to resume sending was to log out/in, which would kickstart notifications back to life. Most users rarely log out, so a lot of folks were missing some emails they expected to receive. We've fixed this now. Anytime you hit a page on the site it should "wake up" any paused subscriptions you have, and you'll resume receiving email.

Additionally, more automatic tests were added to the code-verification process to make future releases as smooth as possible. Next release, keep your eyes open for the second phase of the galleries overhaul (which has been mostly "done" for several weeks, but is still in exhaustive QA tests).

Thanks everyone!
