8.0 Beta Testing

As some of you know, I have been working hard on version 8.0 of Weight Tracker and I’m looking for some of you to kindly help me beta test

Huge re-write

With over 150 files modified, I have drastically focused on refactoring older code, improving caching and optimising database queries. I’m hoping you will all notice an improvement in speed and reduced server resources.

New Features

  • Measurements have been removed and migrated into custom fields.
  • Numeric custom fields are now plottable on charts.
  • Custom fields and targets can be displayed on bar charts.

Improvements and bug fixes

For everything in this release, please visit the GitHub Pull Request.

Start testing

Again, thank your for testing version 8.0. I have no test plans or suggestions in what to test. I want you to test it in the way you currently use it. Does everything still work? Do the new features work for you? Have you found any new bugs? etc.

Warning: Please only test the Beta on a development site. Although no existing, underlying data will be lost, data in version 8.0 onwards is now stored differently. Therefore, if you ned to revert to the previous version, you may lose data recorded during testing.
Warning: Please don’t test 8.0 if you have a custom Weight Tracker add-on. Contact me instead.
