PodDB version 0.2 released

PodDB version 0.2 released


As mentioned in an earlier blog post - PodDB version 0.2 to be released on 6/11/2022, the version 0.2 has been released. The website was unavailable intermittently, even had to do a complete rollback and redeployed.


Externally Visible Features:

1) Over 2,815,000 podcasts, i.e precisely 2815479 podcasts are being indexed i.e over 7,600% of data being indexed.

2) Users can report explicit content.

3) By default, explicit content is not shown in search results. Ticking a small checkbox shows explicit content.

4) Like the search results page, when navigating from the categories page, search results can be further narrowed down using filters.

5) Ability to submit new podcasts to be included into the directory.

6) Nice little trip down the memory lane - Every release would archive screenshots. Once the application evolves and after few years, it would be nice to see how the application evolved with each version. Like how screenshots of older versions of windows such as vs current versions of windows float around in social media. For example Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, 8, 10, 11. Archived screenshots of version 0.1 can be found here - Version 0.1 Gallery.


Internal Features:

1) Not visible but major re-write has happened to support vertical and horizontal scaling. i.e the application can easily scale to handle another 100 - 200x the data without major architectural changes and ready to be cloud-native without major architectural changes.

2) Admin Dashboard for supporting internal administration related tasks. For now, only I can login, using one of my email addresses, any other attempt would be blocked.
