I started preparing some updates on the Lynxs url shortener. The updates will prepare the platform for some new features in near future where you will benefit from some fine new stuff I’ve prepared for you.
Here is a short list of changes:
- Application was rewritten in MVC
- several smaller bug fixes
- performance improvements
- some structural changes in database
These updates will be applied throughout the weekend. Starting today with the upgrade on the application platform the site will be unavailable until 7:00 pm CET. After this first and biggest update the other ones will follow on Saturday 19th at about 3:00pm CET. While the site is already in maintenance mode you still will be able to create short urls via Windows Phone and the links will also still work.
Tomorrow when applying the database update you may encounter interruptions in our service. I’m working hard to keep the downtime as short as possible.
