Pilosa 0.4.0 Released

6/8/2017 • 2 min read

The Pilosa team is happy to announce the release of Pilosa 0.4.0, marking our second minor release since open-sourcing on April 29.

This version contains 53 contributions from 13 contributors, including four volunteer contributors. Special thanks to Alexander G., Damian G., Gil R., and Jason N. for your pull requests on Github! Also thanks to Brian G. for creating a Homebrew package for Mac installation!

Some notable features include:

StatsD metrics reporting

This release includes support for metrics reporting via the StatsD protocol. When enabled, this allows you to monitor several metrics in Pilosa like queries per second, garbage collection stats, and snapshot events. Metrics also include Datadog-compatible tags. Learn more about our metrics support and how to configure it in our documentation.

WebUI Enhancements

The WebUI is now more useful with the addition of query input autocompletion, a cluster metadata viewer, and a syntax for frame and index creation. Learn more about the WebUI in our documentation.

Docker multi-stage build

By popular demand, we cut a special release to include a Docker multi-stage build with Pilosa 0.3.2 a few days after Docker 17.05 was released with that feature. This is the first minor Pilosa release with official support for Docker multi-stage builds. It is available through Docker hub or can be built locally with make docker.

Bug fixes and performance

We hope to always stay focused on stability and performance, so Pilosa 0.4.0 includes 14 bug fixes and 3 performance-related patches.


For this release, we’ve adopted the Keep a Changelog guidelines for managing release notes.
