The SimpleUpdates coding team have been busy this summer. We are ready to deploy this improved code starting this week.
Features in this update:
1) Improved session data handling and data refresh upon changes.
2) URL’s will no longer have a hash, avoiding issues with these in the URL’s.
3) Decreased code size, making it more efficient.
4) Four months of accumulated bug fixes since the code was frozen for these core updates.
5) Improved code update roll out speeds.
6) Sessions will stay open longer — up to one day.
There is now an option that you can check “Stay Signed In” which will hold your session open indefinitely.
These changes will make it more important to logout when you are using a public computer. Before sessions would expire in much shorter times. So, to avoid account compromise, remember to logout.
We will be applying these updates to all sites starting tomorrow and extending over the next two weeks. During the update process a specific site will be in maintenance mode and unavailable for under one minute. We plan the updates to be in the morning hours (9:00 am – 11:00 am EST) on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of each week. If you notice anything not working optimally, please send an email <support@SimpleUpdates.com> or call 269-473-3687 and let us know. Ideally you will not see any difference in the function of your website. All of these improvements are being provided at no extra cost to you, and are a part of our on-going code improvement initiative.
We are also accepting beta test sites for the newest version of the WYSIWYG editor. This is an extirely new version of the editor, built with more speed, and some real improvements that sites will enjoy. If you wish to be a part of this beta test group, you can signup at: http://Beta.SimpleUpdates.com/
Please keep sending us your ideas and suggestions on how to make SimpleUpdates the best CMS you could use!
