So, what’s new in 0.112
The project has released version 0.112, which is the eighth release of the project this year. Previous releases have largely focused on new integrations and enhancements to the front-end interface. In this release the focus has shifted more toward improving the performance of the database. As a result the database performance is significantly improved.
As one of the project developers says:
“At this point, I almost feel like ‘Making things easier’ as the motto for our current development is replaced by: Making things faster! The last couple of releases, tons of performance improvements where made, most notably the frontend starting sooner in the previous 0.111 release. This release is no exception, bringing absolutely game-changing performance improvements to the logbook and history panels.”
