Better parameters, more visualizations, additional data sources and much more!

About a month ago we released version 2.0.0 of Redash 🎂 (we switched to major releases 5 months ago with the release of v1).

✨ The major changes in the v2 release are:

  • Direct Athena data source type (no more need for the Java proxy 👊 ).
  • New MemSQL data source type and updates/fixes to the MySQL, Google Analytics, Presto, MongoDB, Cassandra, JIRA, TreasureData, InfluxDB, MSSQL, PostgreSQL, and BigQuery data sources.
  • New Plotly based Box Plot visualization along with improvements to the pivot table, cohort and counter visualizations.
  • List parameter type.
  • Friendly API key dialog for queries along with usage examples.

… and many other smaller changes and bug fixes!

If you’re upgrading from version 0.12.0 or earlier you will enjoy even more improvements, including dashboard level parameters, dedicated dashboards page, new data sources (Google Analytics, ClickHouse, Amazon Athena, Snowflake) and more.

How to upgrade? If you’re a SaaS customer, you don’t need to do anything — we always run the latest and greatest for you. 😎 If you’re using a self hosted instance, read the instructions 🔗 (make sure to read them all, including the troubleshooting part!).
