Maemo.org, the community site for Nokia's mobile Linux environment has this week been upgraded to 8.09.2 Ragnaroek, the much faster and long-term supported version of the Midgard framework. Thanks to Niels and Piotras for working with me on this!
in October, I spent quite a bit of time optimizing this release, shaving off an estimated 60-70% of queries through some smart caching and removed redundancies. In addition, a new database server is now in place. Together, these should get us quite far in the "Fast Server" agenda.
In addition to optimization, we've been working on some other features related to the website:
- Many new activities, such as Internet Tablet talk and Maemo Wiki now count towards karma, with more karma refinements on the way
- Issues with weird email formatting in Maemo forums has been fixed and will be part of 8.09.3
- Per-module karma listings are now showing correctly, making it possible to see the top contributors to different aspects of the community
