In better news, v0.1.18

Posted (6 months ago)

So aside from the Dreamhost issues, I would like to share what’s new in the latest version as part of my big “get my website online” push:

  • PERFORMANCE: Improved the threading mechanisms around image renditions for better stability and performance
  • BUGFIX: Made markup tagging work consistently between image types
  • FEATURE: view.link() now allows overriding category
  • FEATURE: You can now mark an entry with an Entry-Status of DELETED or GONE, which results in a 410 error instead of a 404 (be the envy of your web-developer nerd friends!)
  • FEATURE: Error templates will automatically use the x00 error code as a potential fallback (e.g. error code 503 will also fall back to a template for 500)
  • FEATURE: Entry titles can now have Markdown in them, and it usually works most of the time!
  • BUGFIX: Now when running in debug mode you don’t end up with two watchdog threads
  • FEATURE/QUALITY: Refactored the way error pages are handled, and now if you get a 404-type error on a page while the index is being asynchronously scanned, it’ll turn into a 503 with a Retry-After disposition in case it’s just something that hasn’t been indexed yet
  • UX: View pagination URLs now all use id as the query parameter rather than a miasma of contextually-dependent start, last, or first which made no sense anyway
