Upgrade to YUI3.1

I just deployed a new version of the application, based on YUI3.1 that was released this week.

Although no change should be visible at this time, YUI 3.1 will help bring the public entry forms to the next stage. Watch this space for updates!

Layout based on YUI Grids bring better browser support

A new version of the application has just now been deployed, which brings the page layout managed with YUI Grids. This should correct some problems with IE rendering. Let me know if you encounter any trouble, eg by filling the form below. I have notifications enabled on the form, so you should get fast response.

New forms code deployed

Although you shouldn't see any difference, the entry forms in MyOwnDB are now generated by a totally different code, and are actually full javascript forms. This change offers a lot of opportunities for the future, especially for integrating the public forms in websites, and is the first step in the large-scale code update that is currently occuring.

South America's Games using Myowndb

The 2010 edition of South America's Games (Juegos Suramericanos) will take place in Medellin from 19 to 30 march. They are using MyOwnDB to collect volunteers applications.

Notifications are now available!

A notification feature has been added to MyOwnDB, which currently lets you subscribe to new entry creations. Subscribing is very easy: go the the listing of the entries, and at the top you'll see a button labeled "Update Subscriptions" which will display the available subscriptions and their status. Currently, the only subscription proposed is for the creation of new entries, but the framework is very flexible and new notifications can be easily added.

Identify the version of the software running on

Although our UI has not changed in a long time (but expect some news about that soon), there's been quite some work being done under the hood, especially in our infrastructure. In the previous weeks we have had literally dozens of deployment happening on our production application. As we're possibly deploying multiple times a day, it became important that our users be able to follow these evolutions, if only to be able to include the version number they are talking about when contacting us about the application.
