MyUW - Release Notes - 2015-04-21
The Tuesday April 21st 2015 MyUW release included a handful of fixes for MyUW Beta features.
MyUW (my.wisc.edu) Beta changes
Fixed : Only show published content
The beta apps search and browse features had been showing some not-actually-published apps not intended for public consumption (either apps not yet released, or apps that had previously been available but have been disabled). This was confusing, and is fixed in this release.
Fixed : Bug blocking app rating
This release fixes rating apps from the contextual (gear) menu available when using the app. Previous to this release, that way of accessing the ratings feature was bugged.
Improved /apps performance
This release increases the durations of some caches associated with the /apps content, and thereby improves the somewhat miserable performance of this feature. Performance issues in /apps continue to be a known issue and are receiving continued development attention.
Improved loading indicator
The loading indicator is now more attractive and is better targeted to reflect what is loading.
Improved app directory entry details view
The details link in the search and browse listing of apps now links to a page specific to each app. The URLs for these pages will become genuinely bookmarkable and shareable in a soon future release, and we hope that will make these details pages a useful way to communicate about content in MyUW.
Fixed new-stuff bar formatting
The new feature announcement bar had styled weirdly at some window widths. This is fixed in this release such that future announcements of change will be better styled.
Fixed scrolling bug
There had been an annoying bug where scrolling on the landing (favorites) page affected scrolling on the apps search results and browsing page. That is fixed in this release.
