    in approximately 6 hours we will begin work to update to core 1.1b2.
    this will be the most significant upgrade to date and will bring a slew of changes and functionality, most notably the ignore function.
    once work begins, inhabitants can expect gV to be offline for 30 minutes followed by several hours of anomalies while various aspects of gV are tweaked and tuned.

    before beginning this update we will backup the disk images.
    if something goes horribly wrong we will restore gV to this exact moment in time.

    our next step is to resize our www partition. this will require us to go offline for a few minutes...

    we are back. it was unfortunate that we had to reboot and lose our 300-odd day uptime record.
    we will now prepare for the database update that will occur in ten minutes or so.

    shutting down gV bit by bit.
    this phase of the update shouldnt take too long.
    once we are back up we will be running core 1.1b2

    core updated.
    the remainder of the work relates to ancillaries.
    this work will be undertaken over the coming hours, but we do not expect this to interrupt use of gV.

    the bug causing the server error (500) when loading profile pages found. the quick fix was to remove the member twitter feed temporarily. it will make a return once it has been fixed up.

    the bug causing certain inhabitants from viewing 'recent activity' is an issue known to the xf dev, who claim to have fixed it. the fix will be rolled out to gV with the 1.1b3 update which shouldnt be too far off.

    we will now turn our attention to styling issues.

    for clarifications sake, /dev/null has been moved to the nsfw category, while the governance node will remain in the admin category.

    the bugfix for the recent activity issue has been rolled out in core 1.1b3. unfortunately, we will be skipping this release and waiting for core 1.1b4. b3 will create more problems than it solves. the b4 rollout should happen within the next week, perhaps two weeks.

    testing 1.1b4 in a dev sandbox.
    also corrected a permission that changed with the most recent node shuffle that left /dev/null open to new topics.

    updated core to 1.1b4.
    this should address the recent activity feed issue that some have been experiencing.

    the only front-end option this release brings is the ability to better sort/filter private conversations. its now possible to filter your list of conversation messages to show only conversations started by a specified user, or including a specified user.

    making some changes to apc, upgrading some server stuff, etc.

    eta: finished. server fully up to date now. session data is now stored in the apc cache rather than the db, which should result in better performance. it is possible there may be some problems requiring constant relogging in... if this is the case please make it known so that it can be corrected.

    after having missed both a firestorm and singularity release in the past 48 hours, we have added rss feeds to newsTransmissions.
    we had the foresight to avoid having 35 old unwanted posts spam 'whats new' by directing the feeds to the moderation queue, although ispy ended up flooded out with deletion records...
    if you feel we have overlooked a particular viewer please let it be known.

    made changes to bring gV into step with the facebook login api changes rolled out this week.

    added new functionality, 'tagging'. in short, a tagged username will both convert the username in a profile card link and issue an alert to the tagged individual to draw their attention to the post.
    example: testSubject
