Jess gave you a sneak peek earlier in the month, but now the wait is over—single sign-on has been activated this afternoon, 25/02/13 1:00PM AEDT.
If you didn’t catch the recent Notes post, here’s the news in a nutshell: We’re moving to a centralized system for sign-in and account management, starting with the Marketplaces. This single sign-on will then be extended to other Envato services like Microlancer, announced by Collis last week. It’ll be fewer usernames, passwords and sign-in boxes, and a step towards uniting our Envato sites and services!
Hi everyone. I’d like to introduce a new blog called webuild.envato.com. It’s a place for the Envato development teams to share insights into the technology behind the various websites that we build and support, including the Tuts+ Network and the Envato Marketplaces. You’ll also get to see our pretty faces.
Hi Everyone! You will be pleased to hear the Marketplace Rails3 upgrade has been completed! The upgrade was a success, with the site performance unaffected during the process. We had a few small issues on the day and these were quickly resolved by the team.
With the upgrade complete, we are now in a better position to take advantage of the new features in our software framework and other compatible components.
A big thank you to the community for reporting issues on the day, you all helped the upgrade run smoothly. I would also like to thank the dev team for their hard work and to the support and community teams for being on hand throughout the process.
The upgrade will commence on Monday the 10th of December at 8:00AM AEST. We do not expect there to be any downtime or interruptions to the Marketplaces. However, this is a major upgrade and sometimes things can go wrong. We will have extra developers on call and extra support staff at the ready to respond to any issues quickly.
If you spot an issue, please do the following:
- Check the notices forum where we will be posting known issues as they arise
- If your issue is not mentioned, please open a support ticket. We will verify the issue and post it to the notices forum as well as fix it as soon as possible.
While we don’t expect that there will be any issues, please be patient as we work through the upgrade. See you on the other side, we’ll keep you updated
