Community update May 2019

Hi everyone!

It’s been some time since the last community update, but we’ve kept you busy with other kinds of very interesting blog posts so you’ll hopefully have not noticed 🙂 Anyway, here is a summary of the latest updates that we released to Freesound:

  • Many improvements in the audio processing back end. This will allow us to process sound more often and carrying out more advanced audio analysis to enable new search features.
  • Show a warning when entering tags that contain letters other than a-z and numbers. This restriction was already in place but no proper feedback was shown to users.
  • Fixed a number of bugs in forums which resulted in wrong forum post counts when searching in the forums.
  • Improvements in spam checks.
  • New components implemented for the upcoming Beast Whoosh interface. Nothing public yet.
  • Many minor bug fixes and optimizations.

As usual, for a more techy and detailed list of code changes, you can check our source code repository. That?s it for now, enjoy Freesound!
