State of the World

After several months of behind-the-scenes work, we’ve moved the last of our services to our new infrastructure. You will hopefully have seen no impact at all, although a couple of people reported problems on Thursday when we moved our front-end servers.

The new infrastructure gives us much more resilience than before, and also allows us to scale up and down according to demand. When we’ve done this in the past, it’s been a manual process.

Now that everything has been successfully migrated, we’re going to start on rolling out the new version of OpenTrainTimes. This will happen slowly and gradually, and there won’t be any ‘big bang’ change. More about that in weeks to come.

We’ve almost caught up with the backlog of map updates – here are some things we’ve done recently:

There are a lot of support tickets with fixes to implement, which we’ll be doing over the next few weeks and making more frequent releases.

That’s your lot for now – we’ll be back soon with more details of the new version and how we’re going to roll it out. Stay tuned!
