We hebben supergoede feedback ontvangen en hebben dit meteen beetgepakt en hier is dan v2.01. Een aantal kleine veranderingen zijn doorgevoerd. Sommige koppeling gebruikte nog de oude Groovescribe. Alle koppelingen zijn aangepast en gebruiken de laatste Groovescribe versie direct van onze server. Het groovescribe logo is gewijzigd, dus hebben we dat in Musicdott ook maar gedaan. in plaats van een geel rondje, nu een groen rondje in het Groovescribe G logo. Ach, het zijn de details die het hem doen zullen we maar denken 😉 Op de iPad schoot het scherm steeds weer omhoog bij het naar beneden scrollen/vegen. Gefixed! Bij het toevoegen van een video (embed) bij de lessen, verdween de embed code in een donker duister wormhole. Althans daar leek het op. Dat hebben we gelukkig kunnen herstellen.
Our Service Provider will carry out maintenance on the virtualization platform that Musicdott uses. As a result, the Musicdott web- and database servers are temporarily unavailable. The maintenance moment is in the night of 20 to 21 July 20201. Musicdott will then not be accessible between 23:00 and 05:00 (GMT +1) for max 1 hour.
In addition to the further development of Musicdott, we also ensure that our servers remain safe and up to date. We have therefore decided to migrate to a new operating system. Here we go again for the techies among you ;-). Since February 11, Musicdott runs on Debian 10 (Linux), with Apache2 as web server and PHP 7.3 can be used. This ensures a stable, safe and future-oriented environment so that we can continue to guarantee continuity, stability and security. In addition, all necessary updates are installed on our servers on a monthly basis to ensure continuity, stability and security. The servers are monitored 24×7 by our management system and we receive a signal at the very least. We intervene preventively and you will not notice any further. In 2020 we only performed planned maintenance on our systems and we can proudly report an uptime of 100%. We will also achieve this again in 2021.
After a long wait, version 2.00 of Musicdott is finally a fact. In this article I share with you the changes and improvements that we have made in Musicdott 2.0. It has been a long development period, in which difficult decisions had to be made, but we are happy with the new version of Musicdott. GENERAL The GUI (Graphical User Interface) has undergone some small changes. The search field and the clock have been moved up. Here and there a shadow border has been added and the gray widget bar now runs nicely under the yellow bar into the footer. All code has been improved, made even more secure and faster. In addition, error handling has been taken care of with better error handling. We also opted for a different font, easy to read and a pixel larger. In addition, all modules have to give the same layout as much as possible and make less use of submenus. This allows you to get to your end result faster with fewer clicks. Oh yes, at the bottom is now a footer with a number of statistics in addition to general information. TEACHER MODULE The layout has been changed. The submenu buttons at the top right are gone. In the table with teachers, the options to delete an account, change the password and modify the account are immediately available. This saves a number of clicks. Per teacher it is now also possible to indicate how many results per page are visible on pages in which a selection of data from the database is displayed. NEWS MODULE Youtube and Vimeo video can now be added to the news module using embed code. The image can also be changed with the news item. BOOK MODULE PDF files can now also be added to a part in the book module. The cover of a book can also be removed or changed. The layout has been changed so that it has the same look and feel as most other modules. STUDENT MODULE Lots of changes. Quicker access to everything, always available from the hamburger menu in the top left corner. Quickly edit student details, get their progress in view and more, much more. This is quite a story and we hope that you will continue (or start to) work with Musicdott with even more pleasure. Please let us know about your experience with Musicdott. Happy teaching and playing! Stefan & Oscar
Because continuity and performance are very important to us, it was decided to further expand the server environment for Musicdott. A second server has been placed to synchronize the database, website and mail environment. We have chosen not to let you notice it again and we succeeded again! We had already taken care of a good external backup of the data and, of course, also did not lose sight of security. The operating system is regularly updated with the latest security updates. Should something still go wrong, our management system will inform us and we can take immediate action. In the network drawing below you can see how the Musicdott environment is set up and that we do everything we can to ensure that the systems are available 24×7.
Update: Because we encountered some weird bugs in the new version, it was decided to restore the old version. We will wait a while for the bug fixes from Groovescribe before we start using the new version in production again. The latest Groovescribe update has been installed today. We received the following three points for improvement from the developer: Export at PNG, SVG Set tempo manually Update color scheme So it is correct if you think the logo has a different color. It takes some getting used to hear that green, but the operation has not changed. I also read that a number of improvements have been made to make the embed code more visible. We had already solved this with our own fix, but it has now also been solved officially. Grooveze!
