Ready for s9y 1.6?

Post by garvinhicking » Fri Jun 03, 2011 10:05 am

Hi!

s9y 1.6 has been in beta stage for quite some time, and I think it's ready for release.

Does anyone object or have suggestion for why 1.6 might be delayed some more? Any pressing issues, bugs?

If not, I'd try to release 1.6 after my holidays (end of june).

Regards,
Garvin

Me, eventually...!

Since I am waiting for the Smarty 3.1 release somewhere this summer to get Serendipity run the new methods. I'd really like to have it shipped with next Serendipity. I already runit on my testcase and never experienced any problems, but benefit a lot from its tiny and huge structural improvements. Before Smartys improvements can be used more in future templates, we should ship, to make people get used to it.

Last Smarty 3.07 was released on February 11th, 2011. Since this some time passed by, next release will be named 3.08, or 3.1, which is in the pipe. We could go and live with both versions. So we should wait, I think - I promise to have an eye on it!

Beside that, there are still some issues with the standard templates: naming .... (css inheritance) ... etc., aren't there?

Very funny ... I just found this very new entry by one of the Smarty Admins/Devs:
This is already resolved in Smarty 3.1 which will be released in a couple of days.
Hopefully to this is true, I'll do my very best to have it included by end of June.

What about the nl2br Plugin?

Hi!

I'd really like our next minor version to be rock-solid. Introducing Smarty3 is too risky, even though it might run properly for you. The new smarty has no advantages for our 1.6 version, so I'd really like to postpone that for a next increment.

I'd recommend to release 1.6 with current Smarty, and then we can commit Smarty3 to our SVN trunk.
What about the nl2br Plugin?
Maybe we can do the same - my problem is that I am not really able to test this plugin, and also other volunteers didn't really post in the thread. So keep it out of 1.6 and then commit it to SVN trunk immediately so that snapshot testers will be able to properly/easily test it out...

Regards,
Garvin

So I could overview the changes and make an shoot and try on my homeserver?

Have had a look.
What's needed to be simply fixed for an easy start into helping for s9y?
I'm more perl affinitiv or shellscripts than php and other languages but it is possible for me to understand the syntax :)

Used the CVS and I've one showstopper in the import-function import from serendipity.
Put the DB-data after installation from the other s9y-Installation in and pressed import.
This runs over an hour with 100% on the dbms.
Have had a restart of the dbms to stop the use of 100% cpu.
Refreshed the import-gui and stand next to the login-page again.
Looks like an timeout for me.
But all entries are well imported.
Comments are not all well, template shows 3 comments, but only 2 are shown.

1.6 clean install in another subdomain.
Apache2 Version: 2.2.16-6+squeeze1
PHP5 Version: 5.3.3-7+squeeze1
DBMS: mysql Version: 5.1.49-3

btw Version 1.5.5 import to 1.6

Hi!

How large is your install, i.e. the sql dump? Can you open a new thread for this so we can work it out.

Regards,
Garvin

Hi Garvin

I just noticed something curious with yesterdays development version (s9y_201106102342).

Logged into admin panel
- opened Configuration - general settings (changed blogs subtitle and submitted)

This rewrites the serendipity_config_local.inc.php (setting new date and time). It was open in my editor, which noticed me to reload.

Is that a feature or a bug?

Hi!

I believe theres a check that compares some variables and if those are set the serendipity_config_local.inc.php is rewritten...I don't think its a bug...

Garvin

Hi Garvin

As we do not switch Smarty for now, we should rewind the preparations in functions_smarty.inc.php back to Revision 2722! These (if switches) are useless and overhead until there will be some future developement version, which will not need them.

Hi!

Done, I've reverted to that version in the new 1.6 SVN branch (and keep it in trunk)

Garvin
