New Online XML Sitemap Generator v2.0.1 While we have been quiet in 2023, we have been very busy preparing to relaunch and upgrading our services.

Overdue online update We’ve been working on an update for some time to address some bugs and performance issues since our last release. This lead to some pretty big rabbit holes and major reworks of code and re-architecting how we use Microsoft Azure infrastructure, which has consumed many evenings and weekends, but finally there is light at the end of the tunnel. Most of the changes in this release were technical under the hood issues that many users wont appreciate although the service is running more smoothly and faster, not withstanding their may be teething issues as we migrate users on to the new release.

What’s been happening in 2018. Firstly an apology. Due to other commitments, maintenance and updates have been slow across the board and with recent increases in demand the service has struggled without ongoing maintenance. We are now making the first of a number of incremental updates to move our service to an improved and more scalable (and hopefully lower cost) approach using serverless computer. We’ve also updated the website terms and privacy statement to better align with new EU data protection requirements although in general we do not process personal data other than your email address for the purposes of operating the service and with your express permission.

They have since been unable to recover the servers and many reported permanent loss of data. You can read more about the outage and how it unfolded on our previous blog and on the BBC news website.
