This week was a bit of a good news, bad news situation. The good news was that I was really recovering well right up through most of Tuesday. The bad news is, Tuesday night things took a terrible turn and I'm basically nearly back to where I started. The main difference is, I think my foot sprain is doing well but now I have a high ankle sprain, probably from a previous injury that got aggravated while dealing with this other sprain.
In spite of this, I managed to get a new maintenance release for 512 out this week. A very stupid and annoying bug crept in, due to a situation I didn't see in testing, which is why there were actually two releases. But everything else appears to be working well, so that's good.
The filter reference change I was working on last week ended up being a bigger deal than I thought and made for some even weirder problems. Over the weekend I got in a little more work on that and thought all was well, only for further testing Monday to reveal a problem. (Also there was a problem with one of my proc code speedups, which I had to investigate and fix.) So overall Monday and Tuesday were pretty productive in terms of getting ready for that new release, making me feel a little better about where the second half of the week landed.
I still have some testing to do for 513 and there's something else I want to add last-minute, but I think I can have that out relatively soon, as long as this new injury recovers well enough. I'm still also debating whether to add another filter to 513, which won't take long if I do.
Again I really have to thank all of you who've helped support BYOND via Membership, Patreon, etc. I couldn't do any of this without you, and I'm very grateful.
Just because I can't grill right now doesn't mean you can't, so get out there and fire up a nice juicy steak, and take a bite for me. Meanwhile I'll be subsisting on junk a little while longer.
