New Site Goes Live

By Richard Uren in Release

Today we launch our new website. I hope you like it. Previously we were using a static site that was closely tied to our web app and a blog using WordPress. Publishing updates to the static pages was a slow process as we had to push those pages through the same release process as the app. So today we’ve separated them out. Hooray 🙂 We choose WordPress as our CMS of choice.

Needless to say we’re very unhappy with the super sort notice, however its out of our hands. If you’re using the api-corpfw.handsetdetection.com alias for connecting to the Cloud service then please add 162.212.59.58 & 162.212.59.66 to your firewall rules, and remove 209.

API Kit Updates

By Richard Uren in Release

Just a quick note. New updates are available for the ASP.NET (3.5 and 4.0) and Java API kits. Both updates fix bugs in local device detection. The ASP.NET kits had a bug which prevented some ‘x-’ http headers being checked for a detection and the Java kit had a caching issue which significantly hampered performance. Grab the updates from our Device Detection repos at GitHub. If you’re using local device detection we recommend you upgrade.

Mega Update, Its the new Handset Detection

By Richard Uren in Release

Last week we quietly slipped a major website update onto all the servers. We’ll be switching on new features from this update over the next few weeks. Immediate benefits are improved help and resources, much _much_ faster analytics using MongoDB’s fancy new aggregation framework, (which are also 25% more beautiful) and an entire cosmetic overhaul of the whole Handset Detection experience. For the technically inclined Handset Detection runs on CakePHP. Our update was from CakePHP 1.
