The site has been updated.

My development environment is kaput right now, so this week's patch is very small - two things that didn't require a testing environment and a fix for shouts. I'll have a new development environment up and running shortly, then back to work.

  • [XI] Item sets should parse statistics for new gear now.

  • [XIV] Some under-the-hood changes for performance and maintenance reasons.

  • Live Shouts now require the user to be logged in.


Also, a huge hat tip to Aeyela for finding and giving me deep details on a serious security flaw. Greatly appreciated!

Why?

Security issue around caching on that page (and just that page). When I figure out the core of the problem they'll probably go back to not requiring a logged in user, but for now this closes off the issue. Aeyela gave me a tremendous amount of very useful data around this, and I can't thank him enough.

Apparently we need to give idiot boy more ideas, a little light.

I really didn't. What are you seeing?

I can't tell if you're kidding or just didn't read the patch notes.

Do we need to do something to enable that?

No, pinging Scragg to make sure he ran a script I gave him.

Here although it was self-corrected.

Even Ravael's and my posts were quoting wrong.

I seriously didn't touch quoting in this patch. I couldn't have tested it so no change went in. If you see other cases or can reproduce it please let me know.

I sent him a PM about that ad redirecting me. I'm not sure if you can do anything about it or not which is why I sent it to him.

I can't. AdSense is all him.

When he has a sec, see if he'll read the PM and see if he's able to do anything. Not a huge issue, but I thought he was against redirecting ads.

Literally, I skipped the paragraph in question, lolwhoops.

To be fair, I was blaming the rest of us :D

edit: it got busy at work at the particular second, so I didn't read it fully...

If you're still seeing issues, add/remove an item from a set to make it invalidate the cached copy.

On the topic of item sets. Since Spellcast is dead, could we get that code changed to Gearswap format instead?

Yeah, I keep meaning to do that and just didn't get around to it (in part because no one asked so I assumed no one cared). I'll make the change.
