Code push scheduled for Sunday night-ish

We are planning to do a code push late this weekend, at approximately 9pm PST / 12am EST / 5am UTC on either Sunday, Feb 12 or Monday, Feb 13, depending on whether you live east or west of midnight. (Time is an illusion anyway, right?)

Here's a partial list of changes that will go live with this push, apart from the usual minor tweaks and bugfixes:

  • HTTPS Everywhere beta! Users can opt-in to have all Dreamwidth content automatically served over HTTPS. We'll post the instructions for this after the feature goes live.

  • New and improved design for the file management pages, which we were hiding from you because we were so embarrassed about them before. Thanks to [personal profile] momijizukamori for making them prettier and more functional!

  • Backend fixes to resolve problems using the aforementioned file management pages. (Did I already mention the embarrassment?)

  • At long last, international character support for journal search! Our systems guru [personal profile] alierak finally cracked this long-standing bug.

  • Support index page converted to Foundation styling, for your mobile viewing pleasure.

  • For users of the Practicality style: color properties now sort properly in the customization wizard.

  • For users of the Drifting style: the QuickReply box will now appear in the appropriate location, instead of wandering off somewhere unexpected.

  • Improved handling of word break (<wbr>) elements in user entries.

  • Allow embeds from: Facebook, CNN, 4shared.com, playmoss.com, onedrive.com, jsfiddle.net, scratch.mit.edu


We'll update again to let you know when the code push is in progress!

Thanks for the heads-up. Not sure I understand all of it yet, but it's appreciated.

Hm. What do you mean by file management? I'm now overly curious.

The image upload/management pages? They've been workable but definitely with a learning curve (and I've had to keep them bookmarked because you did hide them well).

I wonder how I am supposed to know the name of my style.

Also, picture hosting, please. Not that email hack, but real picture hosting.

THANKS for all your work! I bought a subscription or membership or whatever in appreciation.

Implementing embeds from more sources looks great, thank you for your hard work!

Any chance to see embeds from coub.com? I think, this may have some popular demand.

Second question, a tougher one. Is it too complicated to support embeds in comments?

Yay for HTTPS everywhere! It makes censors' jobs a little harder.

Is that why it's called the Drifting style? ;-)

Can't wait for the Facebook embeds! I'm happy to report that the Facebook accessibility people have been doing a nice job at least for VoiceOver users. Thanks as always for keeping it real on Dw! It just wouldn't be the same without all the hard work by many.

This sort of off topic, but are there any plans to have a photo upload client native to Dreamwidth so we can upload photos directly into our own photo database here instead of having to use a direct URL? I know there are separate photo hosting sites where I can upload there and then link to here, but it's more work that way. Just curious as to whether that's something in the pipeline. Thanks.
