MacOS Code Signing

This release adds code signing for the MacOS versions of the app. It is now signed/notarized with a valid certificate from Qaze.

Connection Manager

KV

  • Feature: Added support for updating keys. You can decide if you want to follow the optimistic concurrency control (OCC) approach or not when sumitting the change.
  • Feature: Show the revision and the created date of a key in the KV bucket details view.
  • Improvement/Fix: The “Keys” metric card on the KV bucket details view gets updated when the other metrics get updated. Previously, it was only updated when the user manually refreshed the keys list.
  • Feature: Show more information about the bucket in the right header section of the KV details view.

  • Improvement: KV bucket mirrors provide a button to navigate to the source bucket to browse the keys.

1.0.4

Released: 2024-02-11

Connection Manager

  • Layout fix for the context dropdown field. For users with a big number of contexts, not all items were accessible because the dropdown had no max height setting. The dropdown has now a search input, which makes it easier to find the context you are looking for.
  • Fix: Updating connections could lead to race conditions. It is now enforced to disconnect first before being able to modify/delete the connection.

KV

  • Fix: Show the “Max Bucket Size” form field in the KV bucket creation form.

Streams

  • Fix: Consumer details panel: when opening the details panel for a consumer, the focus movement created layouting problems on slow machines.
  • Fix: Message details panel: when opening the details panel for a message, the focus movement created layouting problems on slow machines.

Miscelaneous

  • Fix: For connection errors in dark mode, the label next to to the error message was not readable.
  • Fix: Corrected the color for scrollbars on certain Mac OS machines.
  • Fix: A fixed MacOS/Arm64 is now available. The application is currently signed with a developer test key, but we’re working on a offical Qaze signed version.
  • Fix: NSC path in the application settings: Selecting a directory via the browse button did not set the value.

Active Connection Bar

  • Fix: Improved/fixed layouting for small screens.
