Sevenval FIT 14.5.2

FIT 14.5.2 is another release bringing mostly bug fixes and improvements for existing features.

Delayed images prioritized to be loaded when they are going to become visible considerably reduce traffic. But if visitors want to print sites, they are basically missing every image that neither is nor has been in the viewport. The new parameter of the loadHQImages function makes the client load all images, whether they are in the viewport or not. And the new event delayedimagesloaded informs you when the client finished doing so. So this combination offers means to prepare the site for printing and lets you know when preparing has finished.

FIT 14.5.1 already addressed noise in the logs. We identified another source for noise, namely overly greedy bots (such as Google spiders) interpreting JavaScript strings starting with a / as relative URLs. So when you write something like <script>var foo = '/bar';</script> into your document, it will not take long until you notice said spiders requesting the resource /bar. This will probably lead to unnecessary 404 responses, inflating the FIT server logs and backend server logs, thus probably hiding real problems from you. FIT 14.5.2 will no longer generate JavaScript strings starting with a /.

Additionaly, fixing issues with the image scaling cache has reduced the CPU usage noticeably.

The SDK for 14.5.2 is available from Github.
