The PhreeSoft cloud servers experienced a 6 hour outage today which took down the north metro Denver area. Issues earlier this week caused slow to no server response. We find this completely unacceptable and will be bringing online an alternate server site that will not only archive PhreeSoft data but will act as a backup server should outages occur in the future. We anticipate this new backup server to be online by the end of the year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have cased.

After several submission attempts to the WordPress organization along with some pretty extensive code re-writes, we are still not there yet. They seem to have a problem with URL re-directs and are requiring me to integrate the page rendering part of the code using more of the WordPress codex. We are accessing just how much work this will involve. This will push the release back several weeks but we are still committed to making it happen.

Phreesoft has released Bizuno 2.0 to the production servers. This release incorporated changes needed to prep for the WordPress version, notably the move to db stored session cache in place of the server storing the session. This release also lays the groundwork for several new graphical dashboards and reworking the core layout to be more in line with current industry standards.

PhreeSoft is nearing the release of Bizuno 2.0. While the new release will have the same look and feel as 1.x, Release 2.0 contains structural changes necessary to covert Bizuno to a stateless design. What this means is that there will no longer be reliance on session variables, tying your current browser to a specific server. This will allow us to alter the load balancing servers on a request by request basis versus a user session basis, geek translation: faster and more reliable page loads.

This upgrade will happen automatically and no disruption in service should be seen.

We have also added a new extension, Customer Drop Ship, which will take an open Sale and automatically generate a purchase order to the preferred vendor to drop ship the order, easy-peasy.
