Seasonality 1.2

Most of you have probably noticed that Seasonality 1.2 was posted today. I’m pretty excited about the announcement. While this release didn’t take nearly as long to develop as version 1.1 did, it was still a significant undertaking. The beta-testing stage alone has been over a month. So I’m both excited, and in a sense relieved that the hard part has now passed. 🙂

Today has been a pretty typical release day. I’ve spent most of my time in Mail.app and Safari, submitting the update to different news sites and responding to user feedback. I’ve been trying to target French news sites because obviously with a French translation my market just got a lot larger in that country. So far the release is going really well. The server’s been keeping up with the load without any slowdowns or problems there. Speaking of load, this will probably end up being the most traffic ever served in a single day for Gaucho Software. Since around 8:45am when the announcement hit the first news sites, the web server has hosted over 8GB of traffic. Data rates averaged over 450KB/sec for the entire hour from 1-2pm this afternoon. I wish I could see what the peak traffic values were.

Again, I want to thank Ronald Leroux and Philippe Martin for working on the French translation. I can’t even guess how many hours they must have spent on it, and it turned out great. I also want to thank all the beta testers for giving me feedback this time around. I know there were a couple of changes requested that didn’t make it into this release, but I’m hoping to have them ready for the next one. 🙂
