5 New Charts for Visualizing Your Data and Creating Rich Dashboards
SlamData Community Edition
- Completion of Couchbase connector; now supports key joins.
- Completion of MarkLogic connector; now supports both XML and JSON.
- Completion of Spark/Hadoop connector.
- Now any card in a deck can now be mirrored; Previously only the last card in a deck could be mirrored.
- Forms can now be built using cards rather than Markdown. This makes adding menus and inputs to dashboards easier.
- Improved caching.
- Authentication is no longer attempted if a permission token is present. This increases the loading speed of decks with permission tokens by unauthenticated consumers.
- The Embed Deck HTML has been improved. Embedded decks now work better out the box and also provide deck URLs which allows for simpler and more powerful integration with other applications.
- Decks are now saved in a single workspace file which reduces the number of requests.
- The open card now includes search making selecting a file from a long listing much easier.
