The 'Snow Fox' Release

Snow fox

During the last few weeks I worked a lot on the internals of Promoter. That means no new user-facing features, but many performance and maintainability improvements. Performance is something you'll notice right away if you're using Promoter on a daily basis. Things will simply feel snappier and load quicker. The new version went live today for all users.

These are the things that changed under the hood:

  • Upgrade to Rails 5 which brings a lot of performance improvements.
  • Upgrade to Postgres 9.6, also with performance improvements.
  • Update of all external libraries (gems in Ruby parlance) Promoter is using and removal of a few that were no longer necessary.
  • Improved caching for the contact search to make it significantly faster.

Hope you enjoy the latest release!
