    <!here> Hi, Prefectionists! We've just released the
    2.0b6
    version of Prefect 2.0! We apologize for the delay, but we promise it was well worth waiting for due to a number of exciting changes! 🎉 We're so grateful for the fountain of feedback we've received about Prefect 2.0. One of the themes in feedback was that the Orion UI didn't reflect the same clarity and elegance that the rest of Prefect 2.0 did. We agreed! Today, we're proud to share a completely redesigned UI. It's simpler, faster, and easier to use. Give it a spin! This release includes several other exciting changes, including Windows support. Note that this release makes a breaking change to the Blocks API - an important abstraction you may have used already in the
    flow_storage
    part of your
    DeploymentSpec
    . As a result, the backend API in
    2.0b6
    is incompatible with previous Orion client versions. After the upgrade, your data will remain intact, but you will need to upgrade to
    2.0b6
    to continue using the Cloud 2.0 API. You can upgrade in just a few simple steps: • Install the latest Prefect 2.0 python package:
    pip install -U "prefect>=2.0b6"
    Restart any existing agent processes ◦ If you are using an agent running on Kubernetes, update the Prefect image version to
    2.0b6
    in your Kubernetes manifest and re-apply the deployment. ◦ You don't need to recreate any deployments or pause any schedules - stopping your agent process to perform an upgrade may result in some Late Runs, but those will be picked up once you restart your agent. Kudos to the UI team and everyone else behind this release, including our contributors! 👏 We will release this new version to Cloud 2.0 in about an hour. We'll let you know again once the upgrade to :cloud2: is complete. Happy engineering!

    Hi all, just an update on - Cloud 2.0 release is complete. Once you upgrade your agent, everything should work as before. Please post in #prefect-community if you have any issues with the upgrade. In case you wonder about the UI: • the UI changes are not yet published to Cloud 2.0 - for now, only the backend API got upgraded, • if you want to play around with the brand new UI, you can spin up a local Orion instance. Here is a sneak peek of the UI showing the most vivid duck! :marvin-duck:

    👋 Hi all - Will here from the Product team at Prefect 😛eople_hugging: Today, we’re excited to announce the release of workspace collaborators in Prefect Cloud 2. 👭 Workspace collaborators can do all the day to day orchestration work you’d expect - manage deployments, inspect flow runs, create work queues, but can’t perform administrative actions like editing workspace metadata or adding other collaborators. Beta users can add up to three collaborators for free! 🤝 To add a collaborator, navigate to the new workspace collaborators menu item in the sidebar from within a workspace. 💙 Try it out and let us know what you think!
