🪑 Display tables for SQL cells

Having to add a Display Table right after previewing the output of a SQL cell always felt a little repetitive in the redundancy department. Now, not only can you add the output of your SQL table directly to your apps, you can also enrich that output as a fully-fledged Display Table!

🦋 Hex 2.0 migration

Back in October we announced Hex 2.0 (has it really only been 6 weeks?!) and we hope you've been loving the all-new reactive re-compute model. This is a quick heads up that we'll be automatically migrating all legacy projects to Hex 2.0 before the end of the year.

What do you need to do to prepare? Nothing. Your projects will still run and return what you expect, but be faster and more intuitive for it.

🐛 Bugs squashed

  • We've upgraded to the newest release of DuckDB! This mean previous dataframe SQL issues with the datediff function and handling of decimal types in dataframes have been resolved.
  • Occasionally failed database connections were not being closed, which could lead to a build up of connections. This has been resolved.
  • Pandas style tables are no longer truncated and require scrolling.
  • Chart cells can accept columns with parenthesis in the column name.
  • We've added support for more data types which can be used in dynamically defined Input parameters.

💅 Conditional Formatting in Table Display Cells

Following up on last month's all-new Table Display cell that included column string formatting (for currency, percentages, etc.), this month we're landing Conditional Formatting. You can now color-code tabular data according to multiple rules that can use numerical, string, boolean, and date expressions — no more Pandas style tables! Check out all the options in the docs.
