Operous team respects your privacy. Our development team proudly builds an app that collects the least amount of data possible. That goes from cookies stored in your browser to tests that discard raw data and save only the results.
Nobody likes those modals asking if you're ok with cookies. It's not possible to avoid them, but we'll ask about them only once. Your decision applies to the blog, documentation, application, and any other part of Operous that may exist in the future. We save only the decision, not any Personally Identifiable Information.

The latest UI changes
The instances list page showed active and disabled instances together. Disabled ones are available to see the result from older test runs, but they could get in the way of day-to-day usage. Now they're in a secondary tab by default. Still available, but out of the way.
A Test Run takes a couple of seconds to finish. We've improved the animation shown while you wait:
There is not much to look at while there are no instances to test. The sloth mascot now explains why a page is empty.
If you want to spread the word about Operous, and use the sloth mascot while doing it, check the new Brand Assets page.
MySQL tests improvements
MySQL 5 test suite now compares runtime values with the configuration files. The result is more helpful and precise error messages. We've also improved test error messages in general.
Last week, on June 5, the documentation was offline for approximately one hour. We've had some issues with our infrastructure provider, and we're still assessing options to avoid similar accidents in the future.
