This Week in Flynn

It’s been another busy week at Flynn. The response to the Gamma release has been exactly what we hoped — lots of new people installing and trying out Flynn. Our priority has been to address the bugs these users have identified in addition to helping other new users get started in the IRC channel.

We also implemented full-cluster restart handling so data persists across restarts.

Docs continue to evolve with new pages for both the architectural overview and Postgres appliance.

If you’d like help setting up Flynn, have encountered a possible bug, or are using Flynn in production, we’d love to hear from you on IRC, GitHub, or email.
