V2.4.0 release has the aim to make the CluedIn platform much more easy to install, debug and maintain. Most of the changes that was brought in are mainly related to deployment and maintenance.
Please follow the How to upgrade from 2.3 to 2.4
1. CluedIn base image
The CluedIn base image are now free of integrations and enrichers.
It means you will only install the integrations you need for your use cases.
2. Structured logging
CluedIn will now uses Serilog in order to produces logs in all level of the platform. It means, CluedIn can now use any sink compatible with it (Seq, Application insights…). See the full list here: Provided Sinks. Contact us if you need one of them configured into your environment.
3. Dynamic UI
The UI will now be much more flexible towards integrations and different type of entities.
The developer writing the integration will now have to provide more metadata in order to be UI compatible. The extra will ensure you have now more control to make the Integration fully working with the CluedIn.UI
The entity types can now be ‘configured’ in the CluedIn.UI to ease improve the user experience. CluedIn will ship with some default configuration. For new entities, you will need to use the CluedIn.UI to configure them properly. It is a pure UI/UX concern to ease the recognition of the different entities.
4. Local Deployment
Using the CluedIn Docker Deployment, you can now run the whole CluedIn platform on your machine using a 1 liner.
5. Custom CluedIn Image
Using the //TO ADD CluedIn Platform Deployment Template, you can easily build custom image of CluedIn with the desired Integration and Enrichers.
