Next schema change release: May 15, 2014

As per our twice a year schedule of making schema changes that impact our Live Data Feed users, I’d like to announce the set of tickets that we’re going to implement for the next release.

We have quite a few clean-up tickets in this batch and a handful of improvements — some of the improvements are a lot of work, but won’t seem that way on the surface. However, the one major new feature we’re going to add are Series. Series will allow us to mark a set of releases as belonging to a series (e.g. Now this is what I call crappy music!). This has been a long long requested feature and we’re finally at a point where we can implement this.

The good news about this release is that a large number of the tickets are already implemented! The big tickets are still in progress, but the smaller ones are already in review. We’re hoping that we’ll have a less hasty push to the finish line this year with lots of time for testing. And we’re hoping for ponies too! :)

    That query will show non-schema-change tickets, too, in the future, as random other tickets get their fix version set to 2014-05-15. It might therefore be preferable to include the actual list of tickets in the blog post.

    Perhaps the script that formats ticket numbers/titles for the release posts can be reused for this?
