This release wasn’t suppose to come out this quickly but things happen. We’ve made a number of changes to the code to increase performance and made the code-base a bit easier to maintain. You can checkout the CHANGELOG in the documentation. Also, development should be slowing down a bit after this release.
In our recent release of FoolFuuka, you might have noticed that we’ve started to remove a number of plugins from the source code. I would like to state that this pattern will continue until all of the plugins have been removed from both the FoolFuuka and FoolFrame repositories.
Here it is! After just a little over three years of on-and-off development, we can proudly announce our very first official stable release of FoolFuuka. Even though previous versions have been available with limited documentation and support for quite some time, we never considered them as production quality releases compared to this release.
Well, it’s been quite some time since our last blog post or any type of announcement from us. Although we’ve been fairly inactive these past few months, we would like to state that we aren’t planning to disappear any time soon. There are a few things we have planned for this year.
The Foolz Archive has found a new owner. We’re current transferring ownership and contents to the new individual.
What you should know:
- the archive won’t reside on the foolz.us domain, it will be on a new domain
- the archive won’t inherit the “Foolz Archive” name
- the internal boards will not be transferred with the archive
- we no longer own the archive and data any longer
- we will continue to provide software support and updates to any archives using FoolFuuka
- current mods, depending upon their decision, may or may not retain their privileges
Thanks to all individuals and groups who considered to continue this large project. We are no longer accepting any offers since our decision has been made.
Today, we had a conversation about one of the services hosted and provided by us. It was in regards to the status of the Foolz Archive, which serves as an archive of content posted on 4chan.
Back in June of 2012, we created the >>>/dev/ board on the Foolz Archive. It was initially created so that our users can request new features to be implemented, report any issues encountered with our software and/or services, and get software support for software we’ve written. We’ve come across a number of issues with the current submission format for these topics and have decided that it’s time to shut it down for good.
We have replaced Etna, the previous server which hosted the search engine, with our own server. This means that we now actually own the hardware running the search engine and won’t be sharing any resources with other services any longer.
Well, I would like to blog about our recent problems regarding our expired SSL certificate and the entire situation.
I think we are finally done restructuring our entire network (for now). There are a few IPv6 that need to be resolved on our front-ends, but that should really be it for now. I would like to relocate our search daemon and place it on its own dedicated hardware to minimize some of our ongoing issues, but we lack the budget to fulfill that objective. However, there is a possibility of that changing in the future though. We will have to deal with the random service interruptions caused by the search daemon until then.
