WordPress plugin upgrade

Posted: 23 Jul 2008 04:09 PM | Defensio, the blog | no comments

We just released a new version (1.6) of our WordPress plugin. ( get it here ) It is a recommended update for everyone. Many small things were improved and fixed, but the most interesting change is the better integration of the quarantine with WordPress 2.5 and up. We've been testing this new release for some time, but if you have any problem with this update, please let us know. Happy blogging!


Now on GitHub and Lighthouse

Good news! By popular request, we just started hosting our WordPress plugin code on GitHub! You can now stay up-to-date with our development effort and even help us by implementing the features you want. GitHub (and Git) make collaborating on software easy. Everybody can now fork our plugin to implement new features or fix a bug. We'll be happy to integrate any changes we feel will benefit other users. If you're not that much of a coder, you can still help! We definitely need people to test the freshly baked code you'll find at GitHub. Our GitHub page is at http://github.com/defensio . Oh... and if you don't know what Git is yet, you should definitely check out PeepCode's great video on the subject ($9, but worth every penny). We have also created a ticket tracker at Lighthouse. You can now submit your bugs or feature requests here: http://karabunga.lighthouseapp.com Happy collaboration!


Upgrade completed!

We just completed the major upgrade I posted about this morning. Everything went very well. Apart from a little cosmetic bug in the charts, we are not aware of any problem. Please let us know if something doesn't feel right. Thank you!


Major upgrade coming

Posted: 10 Jul 2008 04:24 PM | Defensio, the blog | no comments

We've been working hard (very hard) over the past few months to drastically improve our backend code. These improvements will make Defensio a lot more flexible and should also lead to improved accuracy. We'll be rolling out the update in the coming hours/days. No data will be lost, but your statistics might go out of sync a little bit. We do not expect any downtime and the upgrade should be totally transparent to you. We'll keep you updated on Twitter . If Defensio doesn't seem to behave properly during the transition, please let us know. Thanks for your support!
