BlogCFC 5.9.6 was just released to RIAForge. This is a pretty important update. I encourage everyone to upgrade. Changes include:
- Jeff Braunstein added a 'view by author' feature. For blogs with multiple authors, you can now support a view of just one author's entries.
- Jeff Braunstein also changed the 'crud' at the bottom (send to Digg, etc). He changed it to AddThis, which I think is a much more elegant.
- Ok, so both of the previous items may not interest you. However, while I was doing some debugging I was surprised to see how many queries were being run on every request. I did a lot of digging and found numerous queries I could cache. In fact, the blog entry page went from something like 27 or so queries per view to 6. While none of these queries were slow, they added up. According to ColdFire, te total time spent on DB work went from something like 65% to 15%. All in all, things should run faster.
