Noteworthy at Compose - JanusGraph on Compose gets an upgrade


This is your weekly summary of Compose news for those changes and updates which can make your life easier. In this October 22nd, 2018 edition, we look at upgrading Compose for JanusGraph to 0.3.1 and we also browse through the past week's Compose Articles.

Starting today, we've made Compose for JanusGraph version 0.3.1 available to all customers. Some of the notable improvements are on the backend which now runs Scylla version 2.1.6, as well as an Apache TinkerPop upgrade to version 3.3.3.

Existing users who have JanusGraph running can upgrade their JanusGraph database in place, by clicking on the Settings option in their Compose console and then clicking on the Change Version button.

Customers also have the option of creating a backup of their JanusGraph database and restoring that into a new deployment running version 0.3.1.

JanusGraph version 0.1.1 will continue to be available for the next 30 days. After that, version 0.1.1 will no longer be available to provision and 0.3.1 will become the default version. So we recommend users running version 0.1.1 upgrade to the latest major version 0.3.1 on Compose.

Compose Articles

We didn't see any new articles this week, but we want to remind you about last week's Noteworthy at Compose which looked at PostgreSQL upgrades for all customers taking place for the next few weeks. If you haven't made the upgrade, Compose will automatically upgrade your PostgreSQL database to the latest minor version for you.

As always, we had NewsBits that covered the GA releases of Redis 5 and PostgreSQL 11. Also, we covered other important releases and news beyond Compose.

That's it for this week's Noteworthy at Compose. Onwards to next week!
