I’m excited to announce the Dataverse 3.2.1 release is now available.
This Generally Available Long term Support (LTS) release provides a range of improvements that:
- Provide greater flexibility when acquiring structured data
- Improves the responsiveness of the application's user interface when working with large data flows
- Updates version of Python shipped with Dataverse
- Offers additional node configuration options to streamline application support.
This release also introduces a number of application enhancements and a range of operational, performance and stability improvements.
JSON Data Node
When working with structured data in JSON format such as log files, you may need to read a sequence of JSON fragments rather than a JSON Document.
A JSON fragment is a JSON that does not have an Object or an Array as the root, e.g.
The JSON Data node has been enhanced to support the reading of JSON fragments.
In the case of the above example data, the resulting output tabular data would be:
User Interface Performance Improvement
The performance of the Dataverse UI has been enhanced to improve responsiveness when working with large data flows, in particular when:
- Navigating to drill-in or out of Composite nodes
- Adding and modifying connections
- Opening a data flow for the first time after it has been imported.
Python Version Upgrade
he version of Python that is used by the Dataverse application and the Python node has been updated to release 2.7.15.
This enables Dataverse to benefit from a range of improvements and security updates including support for TLS 1.2.
Access to Hidden Node Properties
When working with nodes in Dataverse, the application reduced the clutter in the properties panel by hiding built-in node properties whose values typically do not need to be modified. You can now view these hidden properties for a particular node by using the ‘show hidden properties’ option on a node’s context menu.
When hidden properties are being displayed, the color of the context menu icon changes to blue.
You can set the value for hidden property values.
The default values are appropriate for the majority of use cases.
Caution should be exercised to ensure you understand the impact on the operation of the Dataverse system due to any changes you make to hidden properties.
About Dataverse Panel - Davaverse Server Information
The ‘About Dataverse’ panel now displays a link that enables you to copy details of the Dataverse server to the clipboard.
The Dataverse server information contains a range of attributes that may be useful when investigating support issues.
