6.0.3 UI Load mark reached

Yay! As of 80c6589fec, the 6.0.3 UI is now loading. Let's hit the highlights:

  • Application Initialization: CacheHelperApplicationEventListener and HttpContext.Current are initialised twice during start up and this breaks initialisation. I wrote some workaround code for now. I think there may be some mono differences during application start up or some threading issues. This will need a closer look. However, at first look the app startup code does look possibly too heavy.

  • This setting breaks mysql server initialisation in Linux:

    The setting does not work in linux / unix as it is 'read only' (here). So I have also disabled this check if we hit a linux / unix platform set-up. We could have kept the check, but this would automatically disable Umbraco mysql install on the majority of Linux systems, which by default have a case sensitive file system set-up. Oh, and adding the setting to the my.cnf file in arch linux causes the mysql daemon start up to fail. So, adding it to the mysql config file may break your server.

That's it for now.

    You may want to look at which fixes the MySQL on Linux problem.

    Hopefully this will get fixed before your work on Mono gets pulled into the main project branch.
