Since announcing our first release candidate in September, Timescale’s engineering team has merged over 50 PRs to harden the database, improving stability and ease-of-use.
Today, we are thrilled to announce that TimescaleDB 1.0 is now production ready.
First introduced several weeks ago in an initial release candidate, TimescaleDB 1.0 is the result of more than two years of dedicated effort. Our engineering team, which started with a core of my former PhD students and postdocs out of Princeton University, now encompasses a team of highly experienced engineers across the U.S. and Europe.
While TimescaleDB itself has been production ready for several months now, with its official 1.0 release TimescaleDB is now the first enterprise-ready time-series database to support full SQL and scale. This release builds upon the open source momentum that we have seen so far, with over 1M downloads and production deployments at Comcast, Cray, Cree (and more).
To get to 1.0, our engineering team has worked diligently over the past several weeks to merge over 50 PRs to harden the database, improving stability and ease-of-use.
Our journey to TimescaleDB 1.0 also would not have been possible without a long list of supporters, who have contributed both code, reports, and feedback. These include GitHub users: @did-g, @kev009, @mx781, @HeikoOnnebrink, @znbang, @timolson, @alanhamlett, @oldgreen, @jesperpedersen, @skebanga, @p-alik, @mx781, @EvanCarroll, @Ngalstyan4 @hjsuh18, @fvannee, @fmacelw, @soccerdroid, @mfuterko, @linba708, @phlsmk, @virakothari, @mmouterde, @mfuterko, @gumshoes, @manigandham, @wallies, @cjrh, @thaxy, @bertmelis, @The-Alchemist, @chaintng, @jgrandstrom, @saosebastiao, @jbylund, @Anthares, @oldgreen, @maksm90, @Rashid987, @haohallo, @LonghronShen, @devereaux, @carlospeon, @simPod, @ryan-shaw, @camperterson, @jwdeitch, @vjpr, @sztanpet, @shaneodonnell, @jgraichen, @nathansgreen, @jonmd, @jwdeitch, @ziXet, @djk447, @qlandman, @min-mwei, @raycheung, @meotimdihia, @noyez, @andrew-blake, and @yadid.
