  • v1.32.0 Changes

    January 31, 2022
    • Redesigned Persons & Groups pages.
    • Short link sharing.
    • πŸ‘Œ Improved insight experience.
    • Funnels vertical breakdown.
    • 🐎 Significant performance improvements to the Actions page. When viewing an action, we'll now show you the most recent events (~6 months ago) without constant polling. This should make it easy and faster to debug actions.
    • πŸ‘€ When your users are in multiple tabs, we'll now properly separate recordings so you can see what users were doing on each tab. Previously this could lead with a botched experience when playing back recordings.
    • 🐎 To improve query performance, the "All time" filter will now only consider events from 2015 onwards. We realized some instances had events with incorrect timestamps (frequently UNIX epoch [Jan 1, 1970]), which would lead to performance issues and hard to parse graphs.
    • πŸ›  Fixed a bug when if a user joined an organization with private projects, they would get a broken experience (from being assigned to a project to which they don't have access).
    • πŸ‘Œ Improved performance and increase execution size for complex retention queries.
    • πŸ†• Newly design Preflight page to update with our latest brand.
    • πŸ›  Fixed a bug in which a lot of failing requests would be made when opening a shared dashboard unauthenticated.
    • πŸ›  Fixed a bug in which filtering insights by "Yesterday" and "Daily" would lead to two data points instead of one.
    • πŸ›  Plus 330+ improvements & fixes. More details on the Array blog post.
  • v1.31.1 Changes

    December 17, 2021
    • 🐎 Iterate on async events migration to improve primary key on events table which will improve performance of queries that filter on event type πŸŽ‰
  • v1.31.0 Changes

    December 15, 2021
    • πŸš€ Postgres-based deployment no longer supported in this version.
    • πŸ“ˆ Introducing Group Analytics! Group Analytics enable you to analyze groups, which aggregate events within PostHog.
    • πŸ’» Correlation Analysis just got better! Aside from significantly improving the UI & UX, we've introduced a details option for advanced users.
    • Creating and navigating insights will now be a lot faster and smoother.
    • πŸ‘Œ Improved breakdown in funnels. We have a new vertical layout to display funnels broken down by a property (e.g. conversion by browser) that will make it even easier to compare conversion across multiple dimensions.
    • Searching events & properties is now significantly faster. We've changed the way these properties are shown and we now list them by popularity within your team. Create those insights faster!
    • πŸ’» Following our lemonade redesign we now have a ton more UI improvements. In particular tables got a pretty sleek facelift.
    • πŸ”§ We've improved the layout configuration for dashboards so they'll be more responsive and look better on very small or very large screens.
    • Pushed significant improvements to the recordings list load time.
    • πŸ— Introducing a new funnel query builder! We now group advanced options separately, so funnel definition is clearer.
    • πŸ›  Fixed a bug in Feature Flags when a 0% release was sometimes considered as a 100% release.
    • πŸ›  Fixed a bug where private project names were shown to members who shouldn't have access.
    • πŸ›  Plus 350+ improvements & fixes.
  • v1.30.0 Changes

    November 17, 2021
    • Fresh new look-and-feel. PostHog just got a lot fresher! We have a brand new UI and layout that had been in the works, codenamed lemonade (because it's fresh). It's not only a new coat of paint - we've also pushed a lot of improvements to overall navigation and performance too. We call it turbo mode.
    • Correlation analysis. Want to understand why users convert or churn? Presenting: Correlation analysis. This nifty new insight automatically matches funnels to any relevant conversion signals, giving you effortless correlation information such as "Users in Canada are 5x more likely to convert" or "Users in Chrome are 3x less likely to convert". This is a very powerful which enables you to take funnel optimization to the next level.
    • πŸ’Ύ Saved insights. Tired of creating the same insights multiple times? You can now save insights on PostHog without adding them to a dashboard. Further, you're able to see, search and filter a list of insights created by other team members - which makes it a lot easier to collaborate with PostHog.
    • Fully revamped recordings. The recordings playback experience just got a lot better. From significant performance improvements (you'll no longer need to wait for the entire recording to load), to a brand new playback interface. Find the right spot in a recording quickly and understand better what your users are doing.
  • v1.29.1 Changes

    October 25, 2021
    • ⬆️ Fixes locking migration that would cause the upgrade progress to 1.29.0 to halt (see PR #6640 for details).
  • v1.29.0 Changes

    October 21, 2021
    • Explore and deep dive with Paths. We fully revamped our Paths feature to help you explore the actions your users are taking. From jumping from a conversion drop-off in a funnel to identifying Paths ending in a desired action, you will be able to fully understand the paths of your users. We're introducing a lot of additional features such as: select up to 20 steps, fined-grained controls on what paths to show, and grouping paths through wildcards.
    • βœ… Multivariate support in feature flags. You will now be able to create feature flags with multiple variants to allow for more comprehensive testing and feature releasing.
    • Private projects. Extra concerns on privacy or compliance? Private projects now lets you have projects to which only certain members of your team have access.
    • 🚦 Trailing DAU/WAU/MAU graphs. If you're interested in better measuring your user engagement DAU/WAU, WAU/MAU & DAU/MAU ratios can provide great signals.
    • πŸ›  Plus 350+ improvements and fixes, read more in the PostHog Array: https://posthog.com/blog/the-posthog-array-1-29-0

  • v1.28.0 Changes

    September 15, 2021
    • 🐎 Significantly revamped performance. When running on OSS Clickhouse, we now automatically create during weekends columns for event and person properties to speed up queries. This can speed up your slower queries 2-25x.
    • Advanced engagement cohorts. Create automatic user cohorts based on actions performed by users in the last N days (e.g. to identify power users).
    • πŸ‘ SAML support. Users with an Enterprise license can now enable SAML authentication and user provisioning.
    • πŸ— Advanced funnel building. More features to build more detailed funnel views, such as custom step ordering, event exclusions, among others.

    • ❗️Breaking Change. Support for Python 3.7 is dropped in this version. Please use Python 3.8 or Python 3.9
  • v1.27.0 Changes

    July 26, 2021
    • New Funnels Experience.
      • Funnels have a new bar-chart visualization and show more comprehensive metrics. You can now choose whether to display conversion rates for the full funnel or from each step to the next.
      • Breakdowns are now supported on funnels! This allows you to identify how user and event properties (for instance, browser or referral source) affect your conversions.
      • Clicking on a funnel step will reveal a list of persons who have continued or dropped off at that step. From there, you can easily view their sessions (provided you have Session Recording enabled) to find unknown problems or opportunities that would otherwise be hidden in the data.
      • Going beyond averages, the new Time to Convert view shows a distribution of time spent between steps or for the whole funnel.
    • Revamp of legend table & insight tooltips.
      • The legend table for Insights has received a major styling revamp, including nicer formatting for dates and numbers and clearer identification of breakdown values.
      • New tooltips allow you to scan and compare multiple values at a glance.
    • New filter experience.
      • It's now easier than ever to find the event, user, or cohort definitions you're looking for when adding a filter to a query. This change also causes Insights to load significantly faster.
    • πŸ†“ Clickhouse is now free to use!
      • We have ironed out all the details and have now decided to make the Clickhouse backend fully free now, no longer requiring a license nor having any additional restrictions. This comes from our commitment to supporting teams and companies of any size, so you can continue using PostHog for free even if your event volume increases significantly.
      • Clickhouse is deployed a bit differently than our traditional deployment options, you can find full deployment instructions in https://github.com/PostHog/charts-clickhouse/
    • πŸ›  400+ improvements & fixes across the app
    • πŸ—„ DEPRECATED. The /api/user endpoint has been deprecated for a while and will be removed on the next version (1.28.0).
  • v1.26.0 Changes

    June 15, 2021
    • Feature flags for Node.js and Go

    • Node.js

    • Go

    You requested and we delivered!

    πŸ’Ž posthog-node and posthog-go now both support feature flags. Ruby and PHP are coming next.

    We're making our libraries world-class, and this cycle also saw significant improvements to posthog-python, posthog-js, and posthog-flutter. We now have a dedicated team responsible for our libraries, so expect development to speed up!

    πŸ‘ Thank you to everyone in the community for supporting us with feature requests and PRs.

    🍱 Funnel Trends

    πŸ”¨ Following a few refactors, funnel trends are now available in beta for Cloud and self-hosted Scale users.

    πŸ‘€ Funnel trends let you see how conversion in a funnel changes over time, as well as specify the time taken between steps for a conversion to be counted.

    🍱 CSV Download

    If you didn't already know, almost all datapoints in PostHog's 'Insights' section are clickable and reveal the users that make up that datapoint.

    Well, now those users can be exported in CSV format, so you can use them in other tools or even create a static PostHog cohort from them.

    πŸ— Thanks a lot for building this c3ho!

    Continuing on the libraries theme, a much-requested feature is now live for posthog-js: retries!

    Requests that fail because of for example, the client's network connection, will now be retried up to 10 times within an hour, making sure you miss as few events as possible. So if your user's internet goes down and comes back up, you'll still receive the events that happened when they were offline.

    πŸ›  Also, Neil fixed a bug that sent requests to a wrong endpoint (with no impact on tracking). You can read about how Neil solved this issue on his blog.

    • πŸ”Œ New plugins for Redshift, PostgreSQL, Salesforce, and PagerDuty

    πŸš€ We've just released 4 new integrations with major platforms to enhance your PostHog experience.

    πŸ”Œ Export data to Redshift, Postgres, and Salesforce, and leverage the PagerDuty plugin to get alerts when metrics in PostHog cross thresholds you specify.

    • New querying experience

    🍱 New querying experience

    🐎 We've redesigned and significantly improved the performance of the query builder in PostHog 'Trends'!

    Let us know what you think about it on Slack.
