Redash 0.12 is packaged and ready for your upgrades! 🎉 🎉 🎉 (actually it been packaged over a week ago, but I was slow with the blog post).

Most changes are available in the hosted version for some time now. Full change log can be found here.

32 contributors helped with this version — that’s a 77% rise since the last version! Giant kudos everyone, keep up the good work 😀


Documentation!

A brand new /help section is now available with articles about setting up Redash and making the most out of it. It’s still work in progress but already contains almost everything you need to know to enjoy Redash to the max.

As everything, the documentation is on GitHub but has a new location.
