What's new

Thursday, August 14, 2014

We've finally fixed the search feature.

By "fixed," we mean we've completely replaced the search-by-name query engine to use Lucene, which we expect will be tremendously faster and more accurate than the query-by-example code we've used since the March 2013 update (below).

Thanks for your patience. Weather Now is a non-profit site, and lately we've had so much other work we haven't had time to devote to this application. We hope to roll out some improvements over the next few month—but we can't guarantee it.

Wow. What's new indeed.

Welcome to Weather Now 4.0, a ground-up rewrite of the entire application (except, obviously, the user interface design). Here's just a sample:

In all, we have (so far) spent 97 direct hours over three months on this update, with another 24 hours spent on changes to the Inner Drive Extensible Architecutre to help the effort along.

You can read a lot of the technical details on The Daily Parker. We're just happy we've finished this effort.

So what's next? Look for a few things later this year:

We're also thinking about bringing back flight logs, not seen in the Inner Drive universe since 2003.

Thanks for your continued support. (Keep in mind, this is a volunteer effort; every contribution helps!) We're excited about this new application, and we're glad you're here.
