And another ‘behind-the-scenes’ update which is a big change technically but shouldn’t affect users much.
Potlatch itself now keeps track of nodes you’ve deleted. Previously, when you deleted some nodes from a way using Potlatch and then saved the way, Potlatch would just say to the server “here’s the new way with these nodes”. The server would then work out which nodes were in the way beforehand, and delete any that weren’t used.
Now, Potlatch says “here’s the new version of the way, and by the way could you delete these nodes please?”. So Potlatch is doing more and the server is doing less.
It should hopefully make things a little faster, as there’s now less for the server to do every time you write a way. But as ever there might be teething problems, so if you get an error message, do report it!
