Our latest release v1.31.x is huuuge. Don't just take our word for it, check out everything below πŸ‘‡

Here are a few of the major features in it:

Sleeker UI

We made the UI a little less purple and a little more modern/sleeker. The major changes in the header/title bar, but there are a few other minor updates that we hope you enjoy. Oh yeah, and this includes dark mode as well 🌝.

Namespaced Auth Tokens

A heavily user-requested feature just landed, the ability to create static authentication tokens that are scoped to a single namespace. This gives you more granular control over what resources your integrated services can access.

Read more in the docs: Namespaced Tokens

Constraint List Values

One of the longest open feature requests/issues is finally complete! Thanks to an amazing contributor @phenax

You can now use IS ONE OF or IS NOT ONE OF operators for handling multiple / list values for both String and Number constraint types!!

Hopefully, this will unlock a lot of use cases for segmentation that were not previously possible!

That's A Wrap

Thats all of the major features for 1.31, but all of the changes are in the release on GitHub linked above.

As always, feel free to reach out on Discord or GitHub with any feedback or questions. Thank you for using Flipt!

Over the last few weeks we've released v1.29 and v1.30 in quick succession as we've added a lot of new features/functionality. Here's the rundown.

Health Checks 🩺

We added a GRPC health check in v1.29 so you can always be sure that your Flipt instances are up and running in your cluster (or wherever you run Flipt.

We also added a section in our docs describing how to connect to both our gRPC and HTTP health check endpoints: https://www.flipt.io/docs/operations/deployment#health-checks

Turso/LibSQL Support ☁️

You can now store your Flipt data on the Edge with our new libSQL database support. This means you can also use a hosted solution like Turso to keep your data in sync all over the world without any work on your part!

Check out our blog post announcing this integration as well as how to configure this new storage solution in our docs: https://www.flipt.io/docs/configuration/storage#libsql

We'll have more to come in the following weeks on what this new integration means for enabling low latency evaluation on the Edge, so stay tuned!

Git over SSH πŸ”‘

As of v1.30 we now support authenticating to your GitHub/Git repository via SSH! This is perfect for using our Git backend for serving your feature data without requiring the use of personal access tokens to authenticate with your git repositories.

Checkout the updated docs to learn how to configure Flipt with Git over SSH: https://www.flipt.io/docs/configuration/storage#authentication
