Re: Textpattern CMS demo site

OK, I’m just about done tinkering. Some final CSP changes to check, then it’s all clear.

Here’s the latest: subject to DNS changes over the coming hours, release-demo is now located in Amsterdam and has a Percona (MySQL) 8.0 + PHP 7.3 stack. You shouldn’t notice any real difference performance-wise (edit: although the build script takes a lot longer to run than it used to – I’m working on that tomorrow), but do let me know here if there’s anything that’s broken.

The demo server is single-tenant, and is easily rebuildable, so if a given version falls flat I can roll back easily enough. New releases of PHP and Nginx get rolled in quickly as I compile them from source, it’s literally a case of read the release notes, update a variable in the installer script with a version number, and copy/paste the script into a Bash window. I’m expecting a patch release of Nginx later today, according to their roadmap – Nginx are usually very good on their roadmap planning, and I’m looking forward to some performance improvements that have been promised.

I have a system to catch releases quickly. Vienna is my feed reader, and auto-starts when I turn my computer on. It polls every 15 minutes. Each product has its own (Atom) feed for releases (at GitHub), and I get a desktop notification for when a new version is released. In tandem with this, I have a set of IFTTT recipes that ping me an email when there’s a change on the same product Atom feed.

Example: the Atom feed for PHP releases is https://github.com/php/php-src/releases.atom – literally visit the Releases tab, copy the URL and append .atom, and you’re done.

And so, when PHP releases happen, I get the notification and I just build ‘em. No waiting for a package maintainer, no muss, no fuss. Typically I can turn it around before the official PHP announcement is published. Having visibility on the release notes is useful to see if any breaking changes are snuck in, too.

Edit: added link and Nginx stuff.
