PostHog v1.26.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2021-06-15 // about 1 year ago
    • Feature flags for Node.js and Go

    • Node.js

    • Go

    You requested and we delivered!

    ๐Ÿ’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!

    ๐Ÿ‘ Thank you to everyone in the community for supporting us with feature requests and PRs.

    ๐Ÿฑ Funnel Trends

    ๐Ÿ”จ Following a few refactors, funnel trends are now available in beta for Cloud and self-hosted Scale users.

    ๐Ÿ‘€ 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.

    ๐Ÿฑ 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.

    ๐Ÿ— 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.

    ๐Ÿ›  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.

    • ๐Ÿ”Œ New plugins for Redshift, PostgreSQL, Salesforce, and PagerDuty

    ๐Ÿš€ We've just released 4 new integrations with major platforms to enhance your PostHog experience.

    ๐Ÿ”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

    ๐Ÿฑ New querying experience

    ๐ŸŽ We've redesigned and significantly improved the performance of the query builder in PostHog 'Trends'!
