Awasu » Awasu 2.3.2.alpha2 released
Wednesday 24th October 2007 3:03 PM [Awasu News]

The second 2.3.2 alpha release [?] is now available here.

This release has been a major slog but it's finally done. More optimizations and more bug fixes but the most interesting addition is support for the Outbrain rating system.

This is a new online service that lets you rate feed items and while there are already a few services that let you do this kind of thing, Outbrain is kinda interesting in that it doesn't take a simple average of all the votes cast. Instead, it looks for people with a similar voting history as yours and gives their votes more weight when figuring out what to show you.

In other words – two people might be looking at the same blog post, but each will see vastly different scores based on each one's personal rating history. The more each person rates, the better our recommendations will be specifically for him/her.

We'll be adding more features to Awasu along these lines as they expand their API but for now, as always, have fun with this release :cool:

Have your say
