Radio Liferay Episode 60: Performance and Permissions with Preston Crary

  An episode on the "Per" things: Performance and Permissions. I spoke to Preston Crary, who amazingly was not mad at me for losing an earlier recording.

We're talking about these (and more) topics

  • We open with the attention to detail that's required for working on performance tuning and some short conversation about this topic.
  • Sadly, there's not often a single silver bullet, but many areas of dust.
  • Sometimes the fastest code is not the most optimal
  • Continuing with Preston's work on Permissions:
  • ResourceBlock is deprecated, and there's an easy migration path
  • The usecase for Resources, ResourcePermission, and ResourceBlocks (as they're not at all visible on the UI)
  • Preston's way through Liferay from Support to working on the topics that he's now working on
  • The new API for Permissions - and the documentation is also done already (as of me writing this article, not yet published, but available on github - should be a matter of days or hours)
  • Should you implement your own permission system? (and how the answer to this question might change in 7.1)
  • Upgrades are being performance tuned. I smell a future episode coming up. Paging the team that is working on this area
  • The remarkable memory savings that refactoring the UserBag introduced
  • What happend during login
  • Passwords are PBKDF2WithHmacSHA1/160/128000 hashed, a deliberately expensive password hashing algorithm.
  • LPS-75747 and an update to my hardball question: Document Library's default.xml is still in core, can't be updated through a module, just through an ext.

Radio Liferay Episode 48: James Falkner on Release Plans and the 6.2 CE GA3 release

  A short Inbetweenisode on the release of 6.2 CE GA3 with repeat guest and Community Manager James Falkner. During Devcon James promised the release for the 15. January - while I stated that this release date was wishful thinking. Now we actually hit the promised release date for the first time known to both of us. Enough reason to get together and talk about the underlying cause and intents.

We're talking about general release practice and the plan that was put together last October, how Liferay CE will be delivered and how we're preparing to meet the promise. There's a 6 month release plan for new CE releases - and there will continue to be only one updated version of CE, e.g. once 7.0 is out, there won't be any more updates to 6.2 CE. If you need long term stability and support you should shoot for an Enterprise Edition subscription. This ensures your support for 5 years from release.

We also talk about the next release dates, how to get issues scheduled for that release (hint: Get votes on the issue, talk about it). Also, you get new ideas and features into the next release by rolling the drum for your idea - file an issue and do some marketing for it. This way it will float to the top and get recognized.

James has a quite thorough blog article about the content of 6.2 GA3 which contains quite a lot of fixed issues and - as is typical for maintenance releases - no new features.

To keep up to date on what to expect for Liferay 7.0, keep an eye on the milestones (coming out every 2 months) and Jorge's blog articles about them.

Question on Episode: 38 for Alberto Chaparro or Someone who can answer.
Alberto mentioned about a portlet migration tool as well as step by step guide to theme migration from 6.1 to 6.2.
Can you provide the links for both of these resources.
I cannot find them.

Sorry for the later answer, I seem to have missed your comment back then. The shownotes for Episode 38 (the blog post at https://www.liferay.com/web/olaf.kock/blog/-/blogs/radio-liferay-episode-38-albe­rto-chaparro-on-the-migration-tool-for-portlets-version-6-1-to-6-2) mention the github location https://github.com/liferay/liferay-aui-upgrade-tool and the tool is mentioned again in episode 47 with its new home in https://www.npmjs.org/package/laut (see shownotes)
