We have been hard at work on the next release, and I am very excited to announce that it's finally out the door! We rewrote our UI completely to lay a better foundation for our future plans. In addition, we add a ton of backend features.

Asynchronous API Calls

Asynchronous API calls will allow you to call our API and the long-running processes to occur in the background. You can check the progress later or provide a webhook URL to notify you of completion.

Read more on Async in the docs.

Storage

Multiple storage methods got added to allow for complete flexibility.

Cloud Storage

Cloud Storage lets users store their assets in their cloudlayer.io account. When using Cloud Storage, your assets get served using edge caching servers across the globe for instant access.

User Storage

User Storage lets users bring their storage. You can use any S3 compatible storage, and all assets will be processed and uploaded to your storage. In addition, all credentials you provide are encrypted and stored securely.

No Storage

No Storage is something we currently support and always will. However, customers with data sensitivity requirements prefer to have their data processed and never stored.

Read more on storage in the docs.


Webhooks

Webhooks is a feature that completes the asynchronous API calls feature we added. It's optional, but getting an immediate response upon completion is very simple and instant with webhooks.
