trac mysql schema optimization

For anyone using Trac with the MySQL database backend, check out this ticket: http://trac.edgewall.org/ticket/6986

I applied the database schema changes on the MobileScrobbler trac site, and it’s reduced the time it takes to modify or create a ticket from several seconds down to less than a second. Finally, no more error 500 pages when an operation takes too long to complete!

MobileScrobbler 1.4.0 should be available in Commuity Sources in a few days. Until then, it is available from my beta repository at http://dev.c99.org/iphone-beta/

MobileScrobbler on firmware 1.1.3

MobileScrobbler 1.4 will be compatible with firmware 1.1.3 using Nate True’s soft update jailbreak.

Starting with MobileScrobbler 1.4 beta 2 which should be out tomorrow, there will be two separate packages, one for firmware 1.1.1/1.1.2 and one for firmware 1.1.3, due to slight differences in the new firmware that are not compatible with previous versions.

Update: MobileScrobbler 1.4 beta 2 is now available in my beta repository for both firmware 1.1.1/1.1.2 and the new firmware 1.1.3. You can grab it by adding the following repository and installing the MobileScrobbler package:

http://dev.c99.org/iphone-beta/

Update #2: I’ve removed 1.4b2 for firmware 1.1.1/1.1.2 as it appears to be crashing. I’ll downgrade my iPhone tonight and get that resolved. The package for firmware 1.1.3 is still working fine.

Update #3: MobileScrobbler 1.4b2-3 should resolve the “Database too busy” and “Scrobbler is working offline” issues. Please refresh your sources in Installer.app and install this update.

Update #4: MobileScrobbler 1.4b3 is now available. This release is compatible with the dev team’s official 1.1.3 jailbreak. Also, a separate package is no longer required for the 1.1.3 version. Please remove the “MobileScrobbler (1.1.3)” package and use the standard MobileScrobbler package instead. NOTE: If you use the dev team’s official 1.1.3 jailbreak, the preferences application will not be able to start / stop the scrobbler when you press the toggle button. You must reboot your device for the change to take affect.

MobileScrobbler 1.4 beta 1

The first public beta of MobileScrobbler 1.4 is ready for testing! Add the following repository to Installer.app to upgrade to 1.4b1:

http://dev.c99.org/iphone-beta/

Please report any issues into the bug tracker, and if you want to revert back to 1.2.6 you can safely downgrade using the Community Sources package.

Curious about the future of MobileScrobbler? I’ve put together a screenshot tour of some of the new features. Check out the MobileScrobbler 1.4 preview.
