It's been several months since our Toronto team has convened in our downtown office, and we've blogged previously about how we are spending our free time during social distancing. But of course that DOES NOT mean the team hasn't been working hard. Version 1.14.0 includes expanded documentation and improved features, as well as streamlining and security fixes. Here are some highlights...
Can you maybe share with us mere mortals how many hours/days/weeks and Moz + NodeBB people were available to the project to achieve such an incredible migration result, without revealing the whereabouts of your drone army and personal droids of course! 😉
A couple months back as part of our Roadmap to v2, I made the claim that one of the large features in that release would be the merging of the Write API plugin into core. The majority of the exploratory work had been completed in a development branch reserved for v2-only changes, but the need for a consistent RESTful API became more and more important, and we simply could not wait for v2 (which hadn't and still hasn't, a release date) to drop.
So two months ago, I started pulling out this work to a separate branch based off of master, and set about to finishing the integration. I'm proud to say that the preliminary release of this API has been merged into core, and is available starting v1.15.0.
@crazycells@psychobunny is more well versed with this, but the only real functional difference is that it likely loads a bit faster now (at least, after the first load) because a lot of the pages are cached.
Before, it would reload the page just like you were visiting in a browser.
We don't support natively things like notifications yet, but it is a step in the right direction 🙂
