March 2018

Version 5.3 is an incremental upgrade of the RidgeStar Interactive SiteInteractive Site incorporating new concepts and features in the base 5.0 system, as described below:

1. Database Cache management
To enhance performance, queries to the database involving a single entity (Field, User, Location, etc.) that loads specific information is now cached in memory for the duration of the page. Repeated queries for the same element are then satisfied from the memory cache without contacting MariaDB.
2. Diagnostic Functionality Expansion
Diagnose mode has been enhanced to include a display of every call to MariaDB for processing related to the page (as well as response time).

SetSQL has also been enhanced to invoke MariaDB's implementation of the SQL EXPLAIN statement, which can be utilized to evaluation the complexity of the SQL command itself.

3. Referee: Inquiry and Feature=Similar
Referee: Inquiry has been enhanced to empower the Referee to search for Assignments that are "similar" similar to a selected match. While useful in many situations, it's very useful when trying to replace a Cancelled Assignment with another Match that has simiilar characteristics.
4. Feature=reCAPTCHA
For public facing pages (such as Logon: Register), Feature=reCAPTCHA implement Google's reCAPTCHA mechanism to reduce intrusions by automated programs and non-human requestors.
5. Support for Small, Medium, and Large formats
Internal as well as all shared/common pages/functions are converted to adapt, as appropriate, for Feature=Responsive implementation.
6. Options-Patterns now supports Action=Download
Download Download added to Options-Patterns
7. Support for Multiple Value specification in Patterns
The Patterns in the Options table is adjusted to permit specification of Multiple Multiple Values in Pattern operands.

This version of the system is complete and available to existing Clients (contact your account rep)

Enjoy!
