The Drip | February 2023 Airbyte Product Updates
Hey everyone, welcome to the February edition of the Drip where we take you downstream to cover highlights of our change-log, community and anything Airbyte related.
New Sources and Promotions!
We’ve got some new upgrades to existing connectors as well as brand new ones hitting the ever-growing catalog we have here at Airbyte.
Railz and Exasol come in as a new Source and Destination. Shoutout to Allexik and Christoph Pirkl on Github for contributing to these!
Sendgrid is now offically in GA. Always exciting to see connectors make the move into GA status! Finally, we saw Smartsheets move back into Cloud and Airtable is moving into Beta!
As always, we thank the community for your continued effort in contributing to our connectors and ensuring that we strive for the best connectors on the market!
Airbyte Cloud now has 200 connectors available for FREE
It has been an active month for us and finally, we can say that we’ve been able to push 49 of our connectors from OSS over to Airbyte Cloud and they are available to use as of today! This increases our total to 200 connectors within Airbyte Cloud!
If you missed the announcement, we launched our Free Connector Program where the intention is to make our Beta and Alpha connectors free to use on our Cloud platform in order to improve the performance and ultimately get more connectors to reach the GA stage.
Big shoutout to our teams internally for working hard at this effort and we’re still pushing for more!
Changes to our Github Repo
In order for our teams to deploy new code quickly and efficiently, we have decided to split the repo in two, separating the platform and connector code. This change allows us to make isolate changes discreetly while also improving the development workflow
What does this mean for you?
Phase 1 of this migration has already been completed and with Phase 2 kicking off, changes will only be seen internally. When you want to contribute to connectors, they will continue to live in the airbytehq/airbyte repo. As for platform code, these contributions will be exposed in the airbytehq/airbyte-platform repo. To run Airbyte, you should be in the airbyte-platform repo.
If you have any questions on this, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us in our community slack!
