With all the uncertainty in the world right now due to COVID-19, we are intentionally keeping things boring at Kernl. Bug fixes, new docs, and increased capacity are all we did this month.
Stay safe out there everyone!
Features, Bugs, Updates
- NEW DOCUMENTATION! – After 5 years we finally moved to a real documentation generator! In the process of moving docs to the new system, all of the docs were updated and checked for accuracy. Check it out at https://docs.kernl.us.
- Site Health – You can now change you
wp-jsonroot. Some people change this for security reasons. Site Health needs it for some of the more advanced functionality.
- Site Health Timezone Bugs – Timezones are hard and our Site Health service wasn’t using them correctly.
- Analytics VM Changes – The Kernl Analytics service was starting to get bogged down with increased traffic. It now has 2 vCPUs and 2GB of RAM (up from 1 vCPU and 1GB).
- Analytics Bug – We were logging analytics data for customers that aren’t paying for it. This is no longer the case.
- Plugin/Theme Git Status – The plugin and theme list pages were displaying inconsistent results for the Git status of plugins/themes. There was an error in our Mongo query that populated this data which has been resolved.
- Load Testing Remain Resources – The remaining resources page can take a while to load sometimes because we have to call out to external services. An indeterminate loading spinner was added to let customers know that it’s still working.
- System Updates – All operating system level packages have been upgraded to their latest available version.
