That's a link to a picture.
e: Some nice little features there. I like the "find in contracts", that's going to make things much quicker.

In before 'in before Chribba'.

"More information in the list" topic has two pictures regarding courier contracts that seem to be switched around. The new picture is at the top with the caption referring to the old search window, and the old picture is at the bottom regarding the new changes.

* Love to see contracts and more stuff available via API :-)
* Love the "right click > find in contracts". Always waited for this.

Great Dev Blog and great features!

The Dev Blog shows what are the real benefits from the corification of the EVE server software back-end architecture. I guess the "New Contracts" and the "NEO NEOCOM" are the first "fruits" of the corification effort, visible in the EVE client.

Keep up the good work CCP Twisted Evil

I don't know if the system would support it, but would it be possible to be able to filter contracts based on their meta level tier? Like say i'm looking for some faction armor hardeners. I choose an option to only show "faction" items, or to exclude anything below faction. One option would limit it to show faction items only, the other would show faction, deadspace, and officer items, but not t1/t2/storyline.

Also the allowance of damaged items is much much love for us amarr pilots <3 for you guys for putting that in.

Some great new features coming up--I really like the "Experimental" option. Looking forward to these really helpful and seemingly well thought out changes.

Good changes. Re private contracts: I don't see why you would want to keep 2 different interfaces around, that just makes no sense. Sounds like code could be optimized to point to the same backend and client code for both types of contracts instead of currently apparently using separate code bases.

Another great change to an aging system! With Incursions right in a few weeks and Incarna just around the corner, I can't wait to see what else you guys revamp and fix once all the big features are done!

Yay! Can't wait for this, so I'l surely try it out.

One thing I'd like to see though, is to be able to search for (courier) contracts that are along your autopilot route, so that when I go from A to E via B-C-D I'll get the contracts that need to go from A-E or B-D, etc, and not the ones from/to F-Z. But I'm guessing this is to much server load.

But the current improvements are like the next best thing so I'll be happy anyway.

The improvement I would like to see comes in the form of Notifications.

Currently whenever a contract is made available to the entire corp the icon on the side does not light up for every member in the corp. Also all corp members do not see that there are contracts assigned to the corporation on the contract "Start" screen. Currently only CEOs and Directors get these 2 feature it seems.

Can you add a feature that notifies everyone in the corp when there is a contract assigned to the corporation (or alliance) and allow said contracts to appears on the contract "Start" screen much like it does for the corp CEO and Directors?

Not the benefit of corification, but the benefit of refactoring (one of which recent efforts was corification). In this case there are two such refactoring efforts that come into play:

(A) When we overhauled the mail system we introduced a new concept of specialised nodes in the cluster (originally Mail Nodes) that with further fleet fight lag fixes resulted in the Character Nodes. The concept evolved and by now there are EVE Gate Backend Nodes, Planetary Interaction Manager Nodes, Alliance, Corporation and War Service Nodes, Voice Backend Nodes, Market Nodes, Character Nodes, Fleet Finder Nodes, in addition to the Location Nodes that host solar systems. And soon there will be Contract Nodes. The basic principle is that these are isolated services that don't depend on your location and that don't need to communicate with one another.

(B) Team Gridlock, which works on fleet fight optimisations, had a need to be able to turn new code on and off on a controlled manner on clients as a part of a staged rollout and as a safety measure to be able to turn off optimisations if fallout occurred. The new "Experimental Features" is using that same mechanism to introduce new features in the same manner.

Well, nice change!

BUT

As a member of RF, I think I speak for all of us when I ask this to make it to private contract too.

those change has been requested by Locin WeEda and Red Frog for quite a while now...

we, in 2010 alone, got around 40k courier contracts done. how many public courier contract got done in the same time?

please, make this a private contract change too. :)
