A new upstreaming preference was just released. Update Radio.root to get the new parts.

I've been thinking about how to make upstreaming work for people using computers with relatively slow CPUs. Here's what I came up with.

Every ten seconds Radio scans your www folder looking for files that changed. All the changed files are rendered and upstreamed. Files that have been deleted are then deleted on the upstream server too.

Usually when it scans, nothing has changed, so the part that has to be fast is the scanning. We highly optimized this part of Radio so that it is fast, but on some systems it's not fast enough. It's a fact, some people want to use Radio on such systems. That's cool.

So there's a new pref, on the Upstream prefs page, that allows you to upstream only when you publish something to your weblog. It's the second checkbox on this page, and as usual it's explained on the page. Here's a screen shot.
