Ooops, wrong component :-)

I hope the translation is included properly this time :)

comment:3 Changed 3 years ago by Don-vip

1.4 looks very promising:

  • Switch to Jinja2 template engine for faster and more memory lenient server-side content generation
  • 5 times speed-up when rendering query results, thanks to the migration from Genshi to Jinja2.

Maybe we should nevertheless try this version on another machine, to make sure all bugs impacting us are properly identified and fixed in the next maintenance update. Otherwise I fear some bugs could remain undetected until we switch.

That "Genshi to Jinja2" was actually the reason why I went away from Trac mailinglists. They wanted to drop Genshi without a time when both are supported and I voiced the opinion that this is the worst sign you can sent to plugin authors. And instead of reacting on what I said they started to blame me for the way I said it (which was relatively harmless, I do worse when really upset :-).

Regarding the speedup: I don't think you will notice it. E.g. everything which is slow in our wiki (like the translation tables) neither uses Genshi nor Jinja and the main speed issue is database access and client side rendering, not the content generating.

Lots of work and little benefit.

Let's hope situation get's better.

comment:13 Changed 3 years ago by Don-vip

Why so late? Are you waiting for a new Trac release?

comment:14 Changed 3 years ago by stoecker

I either hope that the workload gets reduced or that there comes up a reason why we should upgrade (i.e. a wonderful new feature :-)

  1. Any updates? Is this really that much work? https://trac.edgewall.org/wiki/TracUpgrade
  1. Well if going Trac 1.4 is so much work can we at lest get Trac 1.2.6 (latest stable)?

A lot. I did this for 2 other (less intensively used) instances and it took some time.

I think so. Have to check.

There was trouble with trac 1.2.x upgrade as well: See #16651

Summary: Upgrade to Trac 1.4Upgrade to Trac 1.6 when released

Seems trac 1.6 will finally have python 3 support, so that's the next logical step for update. I'd think we skip 1.4 completely.

comment:22 Changed 5 months ago by anonymous

Quite some time has passed and trac 1.6 is nowhere to be seen. Can we reapproach the question of updating to 1.4.3 or at least 1.2.6?

comment:23 Changed 7 weeks ago by gaben

Python 3.5+ compatibility added with Trac 1.5.3.

I know. There are already people officially using the devel version instead of the release. Probably that's really the way forward.
