Development moved to Github

We are currently in the process of moving development to Github! The main change is from using Bzr for version management, to Git. We’ll also move the issue tracker and wiki from Trac to Github as well to keep the code, issue tracker, and wiki all together!

Hopefully the move to Github will assist with people writing patches, as they can submit merge requests to easily get the changes in, with minimal effort on my behalf working out what’s changed and if it breaks things.

Head to https://github.com/GraseHotspot to see the repositories and start contributing!

Development Delay (Computer Died)

As you may have noticed, I’ve not posted the 3.7 release, however it has been released, back in January.
However, I was looking forward to announcing a 3.7 update soon which includes some massive improvements in database calls for the displaying users page. We went from >1000 database calls to a fixed 9 for display all the users, as well as a much faster loading time. However this release is going to be delayed now due to my computer dieing recently. Until I can replace my computer I’m very limited in what I can do. No work has been lost as everything is nicely backed up, and the hard drive is fine anyway. So now we need to wait until we can afford a replacement computer (really, just the inside components, CPU, RAM, Motherboard) and then I can transplant them into my old case and we’ll be roaring away.

This is really disappointing for me, as I’m 1/2 way through the paypal integration, so you can allow customers to purchase tickets via paypal and credit card.

This is the new computer we are hoping to buy from pccasegear.com. Case, Powersupply and HDD’s are extras but are things we wanted to purchase in the near future anyway (HDD’s will be in RAID1 array for backup purposes to replace a NAS that is no longer suitable).
