Tera-WURFL Goes Stable!

Thanks to everyone who helped me test Beta 1.4.5RC1 - this pre-release was the stepping stone to version Stable 1.5.0. I was lucky to get some help testing 1.4.5RC1 from a client that gets very high traffic. After upgrading from 1.4.4 to 1.4.5RC1, his server’s mysqld process went from 20-40% down to 6%!

The system gets over 2 million WAP hits per day … The impact on the server is definitely significant. Before this, mysqld was using between 20% and 40% of the CPU, and now it’s down to 6% or less. Load average on the box was averaging 3.84 before, and now it’s averaging 2.72.

I actually released Stable 1.5.0 a few weeks ago and since released Stable 1.5.1 but apparently I never applied the changes to the main Tera-WURFL.com site so you wouldn’t have seen 1.5.1 in the downloads section. It’s up now so check it out! It features a very high speed caching system that caches the entire device capabilities tree for top performance.

I’m currently looking for suggestions for new features and improvements that I can include in future releases of Tera-WURFL. If you have something you’d like to see please let me know!
