v0.1.19: creeping ever closer to beta status

Posted (6 months ago)

The amount of stuff I’m having to fix in Publ to support beesbuzz.biz is diminishing rapidly! Here’s what’s happened since 0.1.18:

  • Improved the Path-Alias redirection logic; now it will do a 301 Permanently Moved for inbound Path-Aliased requests, and if a Path-Alias points to an entry with a Redirect-To it will redirect directly to that URL instead (and it will be a 302, same as the old Redirect-To behavior)
  • Pagination can now be weekly; you can use entry.archive(paging='week'), and a ?date= view parameter ending in _w will provide a weekly view instead.
  • Better default formatting for view.range, and an addition of a week format parameter there

What’s left to do before I’m happy releasing this as beta?

Nice-to-haves

Already done

A change I made right after cutting v0.1.19 was to restore the index scan at startup, but only when running in production (since the deferred scan was to fix a bug that only manifests in debug mode).
