Beta 0.4 - 14 Nov 2010
- Web-based database upgrader: When you install the new version,
you’ll experience the biggest new ThinkUp feature, our web-based
database upgrader. Instead of running SQL by hand to update your
ThinkUp datastore, the app will walk you through the process step by
step, show you what changes it made, and even give you an option to
back up your data first. Screenshots here:
This new feature is big and complicated and while we tried our best to
test every possible scenario, we’re depending on you to let us know
how it goes and report any problems you may have or make any UX
suggestions. (Thanks in advance for that.)
- Configurable Twitter API error tolerance: The Twitter API
serves many fail whales. You can now configure the crawler to tolerate
up to a certain number of whales–5 by default, but you can increase
or reduce it now in the plugin settings.
- Crawler log updates as-it-runs: The “Update now” page updates
in real-time, instead of spinning and spinning until an entire crawler
run is complete.
- Lots of little things: no more exec() PHP warning, the
WordPress plugin instructions and DB calls are fixed, long URLs now
wrap correctly, no more bug with deleted accounts because of caching,
restored missing cache directory causing permissions error, added
automatic tests for installation and upgrade process, ported several
tests to the FixtureBuilder library.
