    Here's something to celebrate at the happy hour: A new release of Orion, Prefect's second-generation workflow engine, just dropped 👏 ! The highlight of this release is Executors, key building blocks that enable you to execute code in parallel, on other machines, or with other engines: Dask executor Orion first shipped with a Dask :dask: executor that could run simple, local clusters. This release marks feature parity with the existing Core Dask executor. You can create customizable temporary clusters and connect to existing Dask clusters. Additionally, because flows are not statically registered, we're able to easily expose Dask annotations, which allow you to specify fine-grained controls over the scheduling of your tasks within Dask. Subflow executors Subflow runs are a first-class concept 💪 in Orion. Subflow runs can have different executors than their parent flow run, which enables new execution patterns. Check out our multiple executor documentation for an example. Fixes & improvements * Updates to database engine disposal to support large, ephemeral server flow runs * Improvements and additions to the
    flow-run
    and
    deployment
    command-line interfaces* Clarification of existing documentation and additional new documentation * Fixes for database creation and startup issues Learn more in the latest release notes.

    Hey everyone, a new release of 😛refect: Core - 0.15.8 - just shipped 🎉. It's chock-full of new features and enhancements, many of which came from this community. Here are a few that we're particularly excited about: :gcp: Our very own @George Coyne worked with our friends at Square, @Damien Ramunno-Johnson and @Bradley Axen, on a new GCP Vertex AI agent and run config, allowing flows to be run serverlessly on GCP without having to manage GKE clusters or GCE instances. 📆 @Nitay J added support for rich scheduling via recurrence rules (RRules). RRules are the iCal spec for recurring events, used ubiquitously by calendar apps. You could use this same spec to create an ics file for a flow schedule in your personal calendar app. :dbt: @ale contributed a dbt Cloud run job task to the library so all you dbt users out there can trigger cloud runs via Prefect! Learn more about the other enhancements and fixes in the release notes. Special thanks to @Josh, Jonas Miederer, @Timo, and @Brett Naul for their contributions.
