**APUG Software Updates This Weekend, Estimated Downtime 2 - 4hrs**
As scheduled it looks like we are still on for some updates this weekend NZ time (Roughly Friday US time). Basically going from vBulletin 4.0.5 to 4.0.7 (these updates resolve over 300 bugs within the vBulletin core system). The APUG development environment was updated tonight and it went very well, so I do not anticipate any problems with our production environment. Also, the APUG Gallery will be updated from Release Candidate 1 to Release Candidate 2, this includes many bug fixes and new functionality. Lastly, I have worked with Wiredtree to install Memcached on our server. The new vBulletin 4.0.7 update can leverage off of this data caching technology (if it works as expected the site should almost feel instantaneous when using it).
