20th July

Perf, perf, perf.

Hey everyone 👋. Long time no speak 😉, but for good reason! We’ve had our heads down recently making numerous performance improvements across the whole Avion ecosystem. Everything from infrastructure upgrades to front-end and UX enhancements. Sure sure, you say. But you want to see some cold hard numbers, right?

Stat

Percentage Decrease

Memory usage

↓ 72%

CPU usage

↓ 96%

Functional response times

↓ 93%

Database ops/min

↓ 82%

What do these numbers really mean for you though?

  • Faster loading times

  • Snappier in-app performance

  • Less data consumption required, reducing your bandwidth usage

  • A more reliable, robust and overall performant Avion!

Improvements

  • You can now just paste from your clipboard with a story open to add an attachment — this works for images and links

  • We now handle tables and code markup in story descriptions much better across Avion and Jira

  • Tightened up Excel imports, reducing bug potential

Bugfixes

  • Fixed a bug where you couldn’t push stories to ZenHub

  • Fixed a bug where exporting a release only failed sometimes

  • Fixed a bug where pushing to GitHub wasn’t as consistent as we’d like
