XENOBYTE.XYZ received some upgrades in the form of mobile layout changes, a redesigned projects page,
a new gallery section with lots of A.I. generated art, the re-opening of the blog, and the removal
of the (ex)official github account.
Prior to the downtime, the blog used to show the full content of the 50 most recent entries in chronological order, some of which sported enough
media files for the data consumption filters to start raising warnings not even 10 days into the month. By the time the old blog was last online, the server
was spending almost 70% of it's monthly data transfer cap on the blog and news pages alone, since the site is currently dealing with
the highest amount of traffic it has yet seen, counter measures were necessary to keep costs down during these most fucked up times.
The previous blog was also getting rather confusing to navigate, hence the slightly different layout and categorization changes ahead of the return of the full archive.
Lastly and most importantly, the removal of the former github backup account. Stating the reasons would derail this update post
so I'll expand on the decision in a later entry, suffice to say, make sure to rely on the official xenobyte freeware repositories until then.
A new backup git host will be added next update, until then, remember that only the profiles listed in the contact page may claim
to be related!
I'll be moving on to more interesting announcements as soon as the website is fully restored. Assuming the world is still around by then. Updating to v7.1.
