Janus Beta Available

If I was to use codenames, nedi 1.0.7 definitely should be called Janus…

But wait, it took me forever for 1.0.6 and only weeks after that I’m announcing a new version, you might ask? Yes, because besides being really busy at my regular job (still paying all our bills), I spent ridiculous amounts of time to rebuild a lot of the internal logic. The changes turned out to be more efficient than expected and multi-tenancy (hence Janus) was a small step for a man, one giant leap for the NeDi community!

BTW, while poking around in my code I had a feeling, which I recently found a name for…

Eagleson's Law:
Any code of your own that you haven't looked at for six or more months, might as well have been written by someone else. (Eagleson is an optimist, the real number is more like three weeks.)

Anyway…updating from 1.0.6 is easy. Just upload this archive with System-Files, if your webserver has write access to NeDi. Don’t forget to backup steelcase.com your config files! There’s a new option to set rrdsize in nedi.conf, but NeDi just uses 1000, if it’s not used…

If you see “view” on the bottom of the users table in System-Export (depends on which version you initialized the DB with):

 

Use Export with “alter table users change view viewdev VARCHAR(255);” like this:

Now you’re ready to test the curret beta, with many small fixes and multi-tenancy features…
