Any Cables Monthly #12
This is our anniversary issue—we've been around for a year 🍰 And we’re not gonna stop! Thanks for following us ❤️
We shared a sneak preview of AnyCable 1.4 in the previous issue. This blog post is an official announcement that provides a detailed overview of new features and explains the motivation behind them. To dive deeper into the most significant features of this release, check out the following Twitter threads: reliable streams, RPC over HTTP, fallback transports.
The first ever Rails World conference is coming to Amsterdam in October! The programme has been just revealed. It’s full of Hotwire-related topics and one talk of a particular interest for this newsletter—”Untangling Cables and Demystifying Twisted Transistors” from Vladimir Dementyev (myself 🙂). Another spot in the schedule I’d like to highlight is “Wildest Dreams of Making Profit on Open Source“ talk by Ira Nazarova, Evil Martians and AnyCable CEO—expect some backstage stories about AnyCable PRO and other commercial opens-source projects by 👽.

We continue shipping minor improvements to AnyCable. The very recent release comes with configurable graceful shutdown timeout in OSS version and the slow drain shutdown mode in PRO.
