HTTP/2 support is now live!

Site Update - 3.2

Release notes:

  • Updated to Spring Framework 4
  • Updated to Hibernate 5
  • Updated to Jetty 9.3.5
  • Converted from JSP to Thymeleaf
  • Updated compiler settings to Java 8

Most of these changes should be invisible to casual users. The biggest changes were made to allow the use of HTTP/2 on this site (once I switch to using HAProxy 1.6 instead of Apache as a reverse proxy).

I am currently converting a few other sites which are also hosted here to supporting HTTP/2. Once that is completed, I will be able to run the entire infrastructure over secure HTTP/2. In addition, I am testing out Docker based deployments of all the site components. More details to come.

Release notes:

  • New Feature: Allow articles to be closed for commenting.

This should hopefully reduce the amount of time I spend cleaning up after spammers. I have started with closing comments for anything older than 30 days. This should at least let me concentrate on page 1 and not have to go back to older stuff.

Release notes:

  • Finally converted security from the truly ancient ACEGI to Spring Security 3.1. The configuration is much simpler now.
  • Began migration to Spring MVC 3.2; roughly one third of the controllers are complete.
  • Updated to Hibernate 4.2. This is a temporary stop on the way to using JPA and Spring Data.
  • Removed the old Hibernate OpenSessionInView pattern. Unfortunately this required wrapping almost all data calls with Hibernate.initialize() due to lazy collections. Another TODO...
