RethinkDB 2.3: user accounts, network encryption, Windows support
Today we’re pleased to announce the release of RethinkDB 2.3 (Fantasia). Download it now!
RethinkDB 2.3 has new security features that bring more flexibility to database deployment and administration. The update also includes performance improvements, a handful of new ReQL features, and a beta release of our recently-introduced Windows port. Here are some of the highlights:
- Network encryption: built-in TLS support encrypts database connections
- Users and permissions: you can achieve granular control over database access by creating user accounts and assigning permissions
foldcommand: we added a new
foldcommand to the ReQL query language that lets you perform
reduce-like operations on ordered streams, with optional support for emitting a stream of values based on the current accumulator state.
- Windows compatibility: support for running RethinkDB on Windows is now in beta. You can download and install RethinkDB 2.3 on Microsoft’s operating system.
