Product updates - May 2021
This blog post provides a brief summary of what's new with Fauna this month, but we're always curious to hear what's new with you too, and what else we can do to improve your experience. Reach out via email, or leave general feedback in our Comment Box!
Region Groups is now in Preview!
Want to keep your data in the EU or US? Region groups enable the ability to isolate a database to specific geographic boundaries, to comply with data residency requirements as well as reduce local latencies. To become a preview tester, please email us.
Dashboard webshell impersonation
The Fauna Dashboard now provides a webshell impersonation feature to help debug Attribute-based access control (ABAC) roles. This feature allows you to impersonate different identity documents or custom roles so you can quickly and easily debug permissions and authorization issues.
Fauna partners with Cloudflare
Fauna is now part of Cloudflare Workers' official data strategy for customers who need to query complex datasets at low latencies without configuring distributed infrastructure. Customers of Cloudflare and Fauna might see lower round trip latencies from having their code running in multiple locations. If you're interested in learning how to use Fauna with Cloudflare Workers, visit this tutorial or contact us to speak with an expert!
Other updates to explore
We've made a lot of other changes recently as well. For example:
Our docs quickstart has been revamped to help illustrate how GraphQL and FQL can be used together as different interfaces for the same data.
The new Fauna Labs GitHub organization is a place for you to find sample code, tooling, proofs of concept, and other experiments.
Support for document streaming and third-party authentication providers have been added to the Go driver, and a preview version of the C# driver, so these features are now available in all of our supported driver languages.
A new Community Code of Conduct has been published to help ensure a positive experience for everyone.
We want your feedback!
