PLoS ONE – After the Launch

The PLoS ONE application framework has been running smoothly for over two weeks and we’ve published 145 articles on a broad range of scientific subjects. But now that the Topaz developers and PLoS IT team have had some time to rest over the holidays, we’re fixing bugs and improving features.

The Topaz developers will focus on bug fixes, performance tuning and code cleanup for the rest of the month. We will wait to introduce new features (e.g. article ratings) until we feel the existing features are functioning without any problems. To this end, we are making the following improvements:

  • Release Candidate 6 (RC6) will be installed this weekend and will feature bug fixes to registration and data caching.
  • RC7 will be installed next week. This release candidate significantly reduces the load of the home and article pages by compressing the Dojo javascript and removing unneccessary function calls. The site will load much quicker after this upgrade.
  • We’re changing the port for user registration from 7443 to 443. This will help users behind restrictive firewalls that have been unable to register.
  • Full-functionality for Safari on Mac OS X. Safari users will be able to make annotations soon!

We’ve recieved over 100 pieces of feedback from the community. We read everything, so please continue to submit feedback, bug reports, ideas, etc. on the PLoS ONE feedback form.
