<!here> Hi, Prefectionists! We've just released the
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! šŸŽ‰ 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
part of your
. As a result, the backend API in
is incompatible with previous Orion client versions. After the upgrade, your data will remain intact, but you will need to upgrade to
to continue using the Cloud 2.0 API. You can upgrade in just a few simple steps: ā€¢ Install the latest Prefect 2.0 python package:
pip install -U "prefect>=2.0b6"
ā€¢ Restart any existing agent processes ā—¦ If you are using an agent running on Kubernetes, update the Prefect image version to
in your Kubernetes manifest and re-apply the deployment. ā—¦ 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! šŸ‘ 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!
