Today we did something I haven’t heard before: an emergency release.
We were building a bunch of new features, and weren’t gonna release for another month or so. But the server was slow lately, to the point of being unreachable – the old features were taking down the server.
So I uncommented a bunch of new features that weren’t ready yet, and for the sake of having a site that’s not hyperslow (it’s still somewhat slow), we released the site. At least performance should be better.
Emergency release. Live and learn!
