We’re keeping up the momentum on releases and, even though focus is on other areas in the bliss project right now, we’ve got a few more improvements to share. So here they are!
This release completes the scanning work we’ve been working on over the past few months. Specifically, this release ports the execution of policies from the old, self rolled framework to a third party one.
There are a number of advantages to this. The reason the shift to a third party framework was made in the first place was that so other developers will find it easier to understand how the bliss platform works and be able to make changes more easily.
But there are also some user-facing benefits to this change. With the new code, parallel threads of execution are better managed so that we avoid over-loading a computer with too much work at once. This should be more apparent in more constrained devices like NAS drives; when bliss runs, less will happen concurrently, but because that means there’s less time switching between those things, overall run time should be faster. There’s also a memory benefit.
