  • New users registering on JuliaHub now have to go through Google's reCaptcha before creating an account.
  • Job details page now has a new UI with additional information, which means all job information (Metrics, Logs, machine spec, image information, etc) is now available in the same details page.
  • Featured notebooks:- Admins can now pin public notebooks which are displayed in end-users Notebooks page as featured items. Featured notebooks can have custom thumbnail pictures which are then displayed in a notebook carousel.
  • We have added a "Source" button on the package docs page which takes you to the package repository.
  • We now display download stats for packages in our docs page, stats include total number of downloads that occurred in the past one month and a line graph plotted using daily downloads as data points.
  • Notebooks landing page is now redesigned to show tags, owner and last modified date of all the notebooks in list view.
  • We now show static notebook previews even for unevaluated notebooks and we now display a disclaimer for the HTML version of Pluto notebooks indicating that the static display is not interactive.

Enterprise

  • Enterprise users can now register their own registries by using "My Registries" button in the packages page. The registry owner can also give other users access to download and potentially register packages in the private registry. Registry owners also get an option to fine tune the access control over their registries by restricting package registration to only authorized users.

  • Clients can now disable full project cloning in their JuliaHub instance. Contact JuliaHub support for assistance.

  • Package Analytics is now part of JuliaHub enterprise installs. Using this feature, for a given registry, an admin can now view

    • Number of packages present in each registry
    • Number of packages in use (Total number of packages that have at least one successful download request for a version)
    • Total number of successful package downloads
    • Numbers of users.
    • A table displaying top packages in use along with the number of users using that particular package. A toggle switch is provided to aggregate the package-use ignoring the versions.
    • Most active users (Along with Install Requests made by that particular user)
    • A graph which depicts package activities with respect to "Number of users of the packages" corresponding to "number of download requests"
  • We now validate registry consistency whenever a registry is being created or updated. The following validations are done

    • Whether UUID and name are consistent with Package.toml
    • Existence of basic registry metadata in Registry.toml (name, UUID, packages section)
    • We make sure packages cannot have same name with different UUID
    • We also check whether the Registry name and Registry UUID is unique across all the available registries
    • We make sure packages don't have same UUID with different names across all the available registries
    • If a package is registered in multiple registries, then we check packages with the same UUID and name do not have version with conflicting hashes.
  • Clients can now customize the landing page for their JuliaHub instance. Contact JuliaHub support for assistance.

Applications

  • We now use separate VSCode extensions directories for every JuliaHub product, this ensures that a user installed VSCode extension for one app does not coincide with other apps.
  • The Linux Desktop app now comes with VSCode preinstalled
  • Following components have been updated in Julia IDE
    • Julia version has been updated to v1.9.3
    • Julia VSCode extension has been updated to v1.56.2
    • code-server has been updated to v4.18.0
  • Code-Server stores users personal IDE settings in a JSON file, in the past, adding comments to this file would result in removal of all the customized settings because the resultant JSON file would be invalid, this issue has been fixed in the current version. End-User's can now have comments in their personal settings file.
  • Projects can now be used in other apps. They are not limited to the Julia IDE.
  • Quarto has been upgraded to v1.3.450
  • rtools is now part of Windows Workstation app
  • On Windows Workstation app, file extensions are now shown by default

v6.3.0

  • v6.3.0 adds the capability to build a sysimage to go along with your job run. The sysimage is built before the job starts. After the sysimage build completes the sysimage is mounted to every Julia process the job utilizes (main and workers). JuliaHub users can choose to create a sysimage by checking the "Build SYSIMG" checkbox during job submission.
  • We now have simple caching based on the pre-built sysimage. This feature ensures that additional runs of a job with the same manifest will reuse the already built sysimage.
  • We're excited to introduce a fresh and modern user interface for JuliaHub. This update brings a host of usability improvements and a cleaner design, making user interactions smoother and ensures faster loading. UI improvements includes a major overhaul to Notifications, Registrator and Projects features.
  • We have added a new grouping for shared datasets for easy distinction. Using these groupings, end-users can easily distinguish between shared datasets based on who shared them.
  • Users can now create folders or directories in File explorer UI, this will help users to organize there files in an efficient way
  • We now have a new search filter for dependencies & dependents in the packages UI, using this feature, end-users can now search for direct and indirect dependencies & dependents for a particular package.
  • Users can now remove a project viewer's access by setting the resource's general access level to "No Access"
Enterprise
  • Job time limits can now be made optional by an admin on enterprise installs, if this option is enabled, end-users on the JuliaHub instance can start jobs with no time limits.
Applications
  • Julia version has been updated to v1.9.2 in Julia IDE and batch jobs
  • We have added following R packages to WindowsWorkstation app:- ggplot, ggPMX, xpose, xpose4 and vpc
  • Users can now access JuliaHub Datasets through R
  • Users can now install TinyTex packages, and all the newly installed TinyTex packages will automatically go to persistent storage, hence, these packages can be loaded across the sessions without installing them again.

v6.2.1

  • JuliaHub users can now extend the job time limit directly from the job details page
  • We now allow elastic distributed workloads on JuliaHub. Users get a choice to opt in for elastic cluster mode via job submission UI, jobs started with elastic cluster mode enabled will benefit from quick start times, resiliency to failures, and ability to dynamically (programmatically) scale jobs up or down.
  • We have redesigned the JuliaHub UI for better accessibility of all the features and resources.
  • ChatGPT integration with JuliaHub:- Users can now ask questions about Julia and Julia packages in a natural language, these questions are answered by ChatGPT, with context provided via existing documentation.
  • Pressing "/" in JuliaHub page; automatically passes control to search functionality, users don't have to manually click on the search box, they can press "/" and start typing the search query.
  • Registrator now supports bulk package registrations. End-user's can register more than one package at a time, this is useful in scenarios where the 2 or more new packages that are about to be registered are interdependent.
  • While creating a Project, end-users now get a choice to select editing "Workflow", as of now, there are 2 modes: "Concurrent editing" and "Exclusive editing". Concurrent editing lets multiple contributors work on a project at the same time, combining their changes when they're ready. In an exclusive editing workflow, the ability to modify files in the project is delegated to one contributor at a time.
  • We now show package synchronization status to non-admin users (Enterprise mode only)
  • We now show the registry that contains the package alongside with package description in JuliaHub docs page, this is helpful to enterprise customers who have multiple registries setup on their JuliaHub instance.
Applications
  • We have updated Pluto version to v0.19.26
  • We have removed all restrictions on user defined ENV variables (However, we do warn if your ENV is not POSIX.1 compliant)
  • Quarto is now available on JuliaHub as a commandline tool (Quarto VS-Code extension is not available at the moment)
  • JuliaHub now uses a dedicated JULIA_HOME for each IDE app
  • Improved interoperability across multiple versions of code-server.
