Version 2.3 release notes:

  • Upgraded to PHP 7
    • DreamFactory 2.3 now runs PHP 7, which means that API calls are super fast. Stay tuned for an upcoming blog on the latest performance benchmarks.
  • API enhancements and bug fixes
    • Added Cassandra REST API. Simply enter your Cassandra host, port, and credentials and DreamFactory instantly provides REST API endpoints for Cassandra. Read more about Cassandra support here.
    • Added new 'Cache' service which provides REST endpoints for the local configured cache as well as Redis and Memcached. Useful for reading and writing key-value pairs to and from cache, particularly from server-side scripts. Read more about the new cache service here.
    • Added Microsoft Live OAuth2 option to DreamFactory's OAuth service.
    • Added 'doc' to every service listing (api/v2/system/service), replacing the optional relationship parameter.
    • Added 'is_base_64' option for retrieving file content, along with the properties of file services.
    • Fixed public path trailing slash usage on file storage services.
    • Fixed display of wrong disk name in local file service container config options.
    • Fixed stored procedure response wrapping issue.
    • Cleaned up the update schema handling to avoid sending unnecessary changes to the database.
  • Scripting enhancements and bug fixes
    • Added queueable option to both system event scripts (<service>.<resource>.<verb>.queued) and custom scripts. Queued scripts run after processing API requests.
    • Moved event script CRUD operations to 'api/v2/system/event_script'. 'api/v2/system/event' now only lists events (or only scriptable events when the 'scriptable' parameter is set to true).
    • Post-process scripts are now allowed to always run, even when processing throws an exception.
    • Pre-process scripts can now circumvent processing requests by directly returning a response.
    • Fixed scripting bug where the system failed to check a script file path.
    • Fixed Node.js remote calls issue when the URL contains a port number.
