Rill 0.39 - Vacations, spending time away from keyboard and new ways of filtering

ยท 3 min read

โšก Rill Developer is a tool that makes it effortless to transform your datasets with SQL and create fast, exploratory dashboards.

To try out Rill Developer, check out these instructions and join us over on Discord to meet the team behind the product as well as other users!

release-0 39

After a couple of days of holiday break we are back at it again with yet another release. This time around it's a smaller one as we have been busy digesting holiday food and putting away all of those Christmas decorations (who are we kidding, they will still be up come February...)

Also a big shout-out to our community members Fred, Christian and Frederik for contributing to the project!

Add Filterโ€‹

You can now add new filters directly from the filter bar.
As we are adding more and more areas to Rill the need to be able to quickly add a new filter without having to go back to the Explore overview became apparent and... now you can!

Auto-suggestion of modelsโ€‹

Rill Developer will now auto-suggest model names as part of our auto-completion when writing SQL.
This should make it easier to write transformation steps within projects with a large number of models.

Daylight savings supportโ€‹

We have added DST support for our timeseries charts to properly handle time-jumps

Bug Fixes and Miscโ€‹

  • Updated project status page to reflect both the most recent time when a source or model has been refreshed and the most recent time the project files in Github have been synced.
