Lets start with a small quiz: Can you find 3 differences in the pictures below?
Yeah, you got it. That was an easy one. :)
Surprisingly, implementing preview for extra asset types has been relatively simple as well. When coming up with the architecture of DAM, the Magnolia team chose to not generate previews and thumbnails of assets directly in the module, but rather delegate this functionality...

Sometimes, life drops a house on your code. Sometimes, it's flying monkeys. Most of the time though, the damn stuff just stops working and it's nothing so obvious as being crushed by a Kansas farmhouse or being carried away by winged primates.
For this last common case, there are a good number of great tools to help you out. JMeter may help you to reproduce the conditions under load, while...

And I think I wrote and talked about this topic earlier as well.
Of course as with any new functionality, there are still...

Did you ever tried to visualize dependencies between pages on your average website? If so, you probably know what kind of pain it can be. The relations tend to be messy and any kind of chart displaying them is not easy to read.
The other night I was looking for some charting library and run across MooWheel.
Using the Wheel for rendering the deps you get reasonably readable chart for smaller site...
