We have a a great list of features, functionality changes, and enhancements planned, and no doubt we’ll work in a few other popular feature requests and, naturally, bug fixes along the way.

Let’s take a look at the primary roadmap, shall we? (more…)

Set Application Version for Improved Regression Notifications and Stacking

versioningDo you get annoyed and overwhelmed by event and error notifications?

You probably have more than one version of your application running, and often older versions of your app may still be triggering events that have been fixed in newer versions.

Those events and notifications aren’t very helpful, so we implemented a versioning system that allows you to set an application version on all events!

After setting an application version, when you mark an event fixed and give it a version number, it will only regress if it occurs again in a newer version of your app.

That means there is less noise for you to wade through, and you can focus on new issues in your application without seeing old or non-relevant events constantly. (more…)

Introducing Foundatio – Pluggable Foundation Blocks for Building Distributed Apps

Exceptionless Foundatio App Building BlocksIn the process of developing Exceptionless, we realized there was a lack of good, simple, open source solutions for caching, queues, locks, messaging, jobs, file storage, and metrics when building scaleable applications.

We tried an open source Redis cache client for caching, but it went commercial (expensive) and there wasn’t any in-memory implementations. For the message bus, we looked at NServiceBus (good product, high cost, not open source friendly) and MassTransit (local setup a pain, Azure support lacking), but were left disappointed. For storage, we simply could not find a solution that was decoupled and supported in memory, file storage, or Azure Blog Storage.

So, naturally, we built our own!

Meet Foundatio – your key to painless, scalable development and testing for your app! Let’s take a look at some examples, below.
