Groopy Performance Update

Streaky Bus, originally uploaded by Me (?).

I released version 0.2 of Flickr Groopy today. Aside from some code tidy ups the main updates are:
  • I found out that you can obtain the number of views of a photo from the search meaning that I can bypass one of the slow API calls. It now takes half the time to render a screen of images. Simply add 'extras=>views' into the request for and it means that the call can be missed out entirely
  • I have changed the sort order to sort by 'relevance' rather than 'interestingness-desc' - I will be making the sort order a user option at some point
