Version 2.0.0 - July 20, 2020

Below are the following changes that could be breaking changes for your site. For more details on any change, please refer to PR #154.

The major breaking change is:

  1. Users that have front matter that utilize images (backwards compatibility for featured and associated parameters still remains) will need to adjust from [images]="SRC" to the new format.
    src = "" // Link to image
    alt = "" // Alt text for image
    stretch = // Optional: See screenshots for referenced values and outcomes

If you utilize any of the following, there might be a breaking:

  1. User custom templates may require adjustment.
  2. User custom i18n languages, or custom templates referencing i18n translations may require adjustment.
  3. User custom template for comments will require adjustment if it uses the theme’s CSS and/or JS.
  4. User custom CSS may need to adjust due to a variety of class name changes and specificity changes.

While I realize this is inconvenient, I hope that it is worth it to you in the long run. Thanks for using the theme, and feel free to submit issues as needed.

To avoid starting Jobs starting jobs after the core upgrade we wanted to start Jenkins in…

This is just a quick post (merely to have something for myself to remember) on how to get MS SQL running on Linux.
As you might have noticed, there is a developer version of the next MS SQL server available (for now called “vNext Community Preview”) which is also available on Linux and even as a Docker container.

As announced in the previous post, I rebooted the blog in order to write about our experiences with OpenStack and Ceph. For the first topic I picked the Ceph cache tiering, as we have recently struggled quite a bit to keep it up and running ;)

It’s been a long time, but I figured it’s time to restart the blog. In the past two years we started setting up an OpenStack based IaaS for our developers to be able to test our software in a distributed fashion. As storage we’ve chosen Ceph which is quite powerful but also comes with a few unexecpted quirks. So expect quite some OpenStack and Ceph posts in the future.
