Hi Stefan, thanks for the report. There was actually no bug, but the compilation of translated messages was no automated so I forgot during the migration. I automated it so it should not happen again smile

I am glad to report that thanks to this latest update that I mentioned today, I was able to scale AstroBin to 3 virtual instances and fully utilize the new and more powerful server. I will monitor actual numbers over the next few days, but to me things look extremely fast!

As a final performance upgrade, I have moved the database from the same server as all the other services ran, to a dedicated AWS RDS instance. I can immediately the extra boost in speed! I'm very happy now with the performance, and I will not touch it for a while. So please enjoy the stability for a long time now! I will get back to working on features and bug fixes smile

New release! The most notable improvement with this release is the rehaul of the search page.
This introduces the following features:

 - Add/remove search filters dynamically - Add ability to search comments and forum posts - Add filters for astrometry data - Add filter to find only animated images - Add filter to exclude images with insufficient data from the results - Add filter to find images by country (and city as search term too)

I have also retired the Big Wall, as you can do with the search everything that you could do with the Big Wall. I will only do an additional improvement so that the search page shows all latest images by default, to look like the old Wall. Maybe call it "The Big Wall of Search" to make everyone happy smile

Enjoy!
