FDPoker 2.0.1

2014/02/19
FD Texas Hold'em Poker v2.0.1 is available.
Little update of the app with the following changelog: AI raise algorithm updated for lower difficulties levels, typos fixes, Firefox browser fixes, one time popup added to inform of the end of the Premium Edition trial period, cookies disabled handling.
Also the app has been made searchable on the chrome store in all languages. If you want to help translate the content in your language contact us.
The most important work has been done on the back-end (identity/payment) in order to handle failed cases more gracefully.
This update closes version 2 open beta phase.

Also v2 launch has been a relative success.
All numbers are in the green regarding views, bounce rate and such. In fact they all have triple so we are very happy about that.
The main problem is the app visibility which is still way too low. Especially when you compare the quality and content of FDPoker to others poker apps on the store. But when you don't come first on search results, that's the expected consequence.
So, if you like the app, spread the word and rate us on the store !!

Repositories migrations

2013/10/22
Infrastructure change
We have decided to move all our repositories out of our private server. All ours public projects will be hosted on GitHub and our private ones on Bitbucket.
We choose GitHub to get our work more visibility. Bitbucket was chosen to reduce our IT costs and have a better fault tolerance.
We would like to thank Gna for hosting our projects for so long.

All ours open sources projects are already migrated including theirs tickets. Here are links to the main ones: SDLut, WkCmake.
Or you can simply browse our users for all other projects: Asmodehn, XorfacX

This migration also means a drastic change in our version control system.
In the near future will be using exclusively Git and say bye bye to SVN and Bazaar.
It has been a tough call, especially for bzr because we really like this VCS, but it's for the best.

FD Architecture

2012/07/26
Building our home
Hi,
We haven't posted any product news lately, sorry about that by the way, but it doesn't mean we weren't working.
In fact part of our energy has been focused on our business model and resultant internal architecture. No no, it doesn't mean we had to cut of our team :D, in fact we're still looking for talented and dedicated people to join us.
Our primary goal being to bring quality products and experience to our users and our secondary one to have fun while doing it, we had to think our strategy as a whole self.
In order to achieved this we have developed two modules. The first one is a complete identification system, with log in/sign in/external id providers capabilities, usable everywhere and easily. The second module is a payment system (well because we have to ;)) with various payment methods to suits our products need (trial, direct purchase, micro-payments) and various payments means. These modules are both easily integrable in our products (for our techy readers we are using a message system based on postMessage and JsonP).
Has you might imagine such kind of work needed many testing and was very tech focused but in the end we're done with it now and can focus more on our user projects for the time coming. More on this part very soon !
