Jobping Open Source URL Shortener. Goes to Version 0.5

We have updated our url shortener for Jobping. jobp.in has moved along to Version 0.5. While maintaining as little features as possible!

Since the initial version we have placed a restriction(web.configurable) on the domain names that the shortener will shorten. We did this so only domains under jobping.com would be processed by the shortener. We wanted to maintain the integrity of the jobp.in domain. With this in place you can be sure that if you click a link shortened by http://jobp.in  it will always go to our site jobping.com site.

A database migration to add case sensitivity to the short url column was added to the migration scripts. Previously this needed to be added manually after the install. Now it all runs out of the box, just x-copy, point it to a database and your good to go.

This version also includes a new custom style, which looks awesome by the way, for the site. The interface is now slick and styled inline with our main site Jobping.

The new version can be downloaded from codeplex here: http://jpurlshortener.codeplex.com/
