We're still enjoying our preview of what the climate will be like in 30 years. Yep, in case you missed it, solar activity has been dropping and the planet went through a 15-year cooling period following the change of millennium, and solar scientists are saying we can expect things to get even cooler by 2050. Something to ponder this Sunday.
But back to business! Well, development was kind of all over the map this week, but the main thing I did was make some changes under the hood to the host ban system. A couple of outstanding issues have been addressed, including one that largely got fixed by accident because I discovered how to reproduce it while fixing something else. Bottom line: SS13 hosts rejoice! for I have answered your pleas. Don't forget to return the favor.
Today's new release of 512.1422 fixes that, but I've also been looking at a bunch of other stuff--in large part because I haven't really had a good opportunity to get down and dirty with the webclient lately. So I was looking into updating the Goto dialog in DM like I talked about last week, and I discovered the Find box isn't modeless like Find/Replace is--making it harder to work with for no good reason. I cleaned that up by combining the two, and plan to nix out the now-dead code for the old Find box before some future release.
Beyond that it's mostly been little stuff, like adding a new timing routine I want to try out for some possible client profiling. The tool set I have for that is limited and when I tried to profile things at the rendering level it all fell apart, but for less granular profiling I can probably come up with something. That's been a longstanding request.
