  • Added the features, channel, organizations, and all build download pages on
    • Download buttons added for all languages and platforms.
    • Found a CDN (for website) that should work and won't cost hundreds per month, testing Cloudfront.
    • Next: remaining two items to get this up on are release notes and language rewrite code
    • A few URLs are broken and the site needs a final polish pass after notes/language rewrites are done.
  • Started researching how to set up AMO and determining whether this is even realistic, will be another couple weeks before I have anything to report.
  • Want to use New Relic synthetics for testing the website and the only services in place of Site 24x7, probably would take 1-2 weeks to set up.
