ScrewPile update for 07-25-2010
So, what's new since last time? Well, not everything one might have hoped for, but a few Neddick bugs have been fixed at least, and progress continues on. We still hope to have Neddick TPR2 out by the end of August, and maybe a solid start on Heceta.
Specifically regarding Neddick, since last time, the bugs that have been resolved are:
Bug #12 - Make "tag" box work when pressing ENTER] - FIXED Bug #8 - Get arrows for up/down vote links - FIXED Bug #25 - Create scheduler mechanism for asynchronous updates - FIXED Bug #35 - Need scheduled job to rebuild entrycache on some periodic basis - FIXED
The scheduled task stuff turned out to be pretty simple, thanks for the excellent Quartz Plugin for Grails. Now the EntryCache gets refreshed once a minute. Additionally, even though it wasn't in the bug list as a discrete bug, a problem with recalculating the score of an entry - after an upvote was removed - has been fixed.
As to what's coming next... mainly work on the next Neddick TPR, so see the Roadmap for details. The bugs on the roadmap page are now sorted (more or less) by the order in which we intend to attack them, so it should be pretty easy to tell where things are going.
And that's a wrap, for this week.
