There are some “new and improved” versions to the underlying frameworks that Membee uses which we’ve been testing in Membee’s test environment and we’re anxious to roll them out on the production servers. These new versions will provide a few minor performance improvements in Membee right away but what really excites us are new capabilities they bring that we’re putting to work in new features which are currently under development.
The changes will happen transparently throughout the day on Friday June 24, 2011 between 8 AM and 4 PM Eastern Daylight Time (UTC -4) and when they are in place, we need to change one setting in your organization’s settings which may have Membee’s outward facing features (events, directories, member profile, etc.) unavailable to a visitor to your site for 10-15 seconds. During that 10-15 seconds, your site visitor might get a “503 Service Unavailable” status message from their browser. The chances are really, really slim that they will encounter this message.
Both the technical support and customer service teams are working on this so let us know immediately if you encounter anything unusual.
Thanks for helping us to grow the hive!
