@Kevin Kho a month or so we had a quick comment about upcoming improvements to pickling in Prefect. have those gotten added yet to Prefect 1.0?

But I can say there hasn’t been anything drastically new in 1.0, and more of the efforts are on 2.0, including how to make packaging of flows easier

gotcha, maybe to jog your memory, our message thread was about pickling, and then you sent a link to a recently merged PR into a/the pickling library from another github user/org. then you mentioned that switching to it was on the backlog but not scheduled
does that ring a 🔔

i absolutely know what this is. this is about packaging custom modules with the Flow
Let’s just say that is in active development

Just 2.0 as part of general availability

ok so i can plan accordingly, does 2.0 have the same on-prem-ability, like having a Helm chart?

cool thank you! back on topic about pickling/serialization... in 1.0 its VERY shallow, i.e. we're only seeing serialization of the top-level Flow code. anything from an
import
has to be provided another way
(we're doing complicated
pip install -e
and a custom container to side-load dependent code)
