Knop Project Update - Bug Fixes and Speed Improvements
The community of Lasso developers working on the Knop project
knocked out a tricky bug this week and made significant
performance improvements in Knop on Lasso 9. We also have some
really cool stuff coming up for both Knop for Lasso 8 and 9.
In Knop for both Lasso 8 and 9, we tracked down, isolated, and
squashed a bug concerning record locking. Now stale record
locks get cleared, and when a user completes editing a record,
all their record locks are cleared. This is an important update
for anyone using record locking in their Knop solutions. Thanks
to both Ric Lewis and Jolle Carlestam for the fixes to Knop for
Lasso 8 and 9, respectively.
Jolle Carlestam has been extremely productive with applying
recently learned code optimization techniques for Lasso 9. In
one measured example, timing was sliced from 500 microseconds to
The Knop Project is an open source web application framework.
We're continuously learning new techniques to improve our code,
while applying the latest innovations in Lasso 9. More
importantly, we're demonstrating how to collaborate and share
our ideas, find mistakes and bugs and fix them, and publicly
document the entire process.
We tend to hang out in LassoChat on AIM/iChat, too.
