EDK (YC-118-3 1.0)

Post by Salvoxia » Thu Mar 17, 2016 17:31

\o guys,

EDK (2016-03-09)

This release updates your database to YC-118-3 1.0 and contains a bunch of fixes.
One of them them is a potential cache poisoning issue when using Memcached/Redis, discovered by Bas. That would happen when running multiple killboard instances off the same database and using the same memcached/Redis database for them.

Another thing arrived very late, I noticed it due to the CREST outages caused by the upgrade of TQ's hardware and move to another data center. In EDK, zKBFetch and IDFeed would simply skip killmails if fetching them from CREST failed due to technical difficulties. With this update, the import process gets aborted when encountering a problem with CREST communication.
