Preparing for 1.9.0 Beta

UPDATE 2010-07-20: Performance issues in version 1.9.0 Beta have been resolved. Release panned for tomorrow.

UPDATE 2010-07-19: After encountering performance problems on the production server we had to withdraw version 1.9.0 Beta for further testing and revert back to version 1.8.7 Beta.

We are preparing to release RSS Graffiti version 1.9.0 Beta later today. One of the important updates in the new version is a change on our integration with Bit.ly. To allow for this and other updates, we had to make some design changes in our database. 

So, preparing for tonight’s release we are now taking the application offline for a while to make the necessary updates to the live database before deploying the new version. The disruption in the service is expected to last roughly for half an hour. Nevertheless, we know that we will have to take the application offline at least twice today to complete the deployment process. 

During the down-time your feeds will also pause processing. Updates in your feeds will resume automatically as soon as the application is back online.

Thanks for your patience and your support.
