MDB CLI Changelog

Version 4.1.0, released 27.09.2022

MDB GO 4.1.0 brings many improvements, mostly focused on MDB GO Dashboard and our homepage.

New MDB GO Dashboard

We have completely redesigned MDB GO Dashboard and have built the new version from scratch. We have added more views and improved the existing ones. We have also changed the navigation - on the left-hand side you will see many more options and you will notice that the menu items have been grouped into logical groups where you can easily find the options that you are looking for. This new version better shows what MDB GO is and what you can do with this. The old design didn't really show all possibilities and wasn't very convenient. We strongly believe that the new MDB GO Dashboard demonstrates the potential of our hosting platform and shows many features that are available for users.

Below are listed all the new views with a brief explanation of what are they built for:

  • Overview - Here you will find the most important info about your data hosted on MDB GO. You'll see a list of the most recent projects, your latest activity, some numbers showing how many resources you have created so far as well as your license and plan info & limits.
  • Create Project/Database - We have moved the create forms to separate pages. It allowed us to have more space for additional options and info that helps create new Projects and Databases.
  • Manage Projects/Databases/Custom domains/Repositories - The current Projects and Databases listings have been improved and we have added also Custom domains and Repositories listings. It helps you better understand the features that you are using and you can quickly jump into a particular Project management panel.
  • Manage Project/Database - We have significantly improved the Project/Database management panels. You will notice a lot more info separated into tabs which lets you easily see all the necessary details.
  • Analytics - Here you will have access to some basic analytics info about your projects. We will show you how often your projects are visited by users on the Internet.
  • Backups - This view allows you to look into the frequency of backups that are created for your safety. Depending on the plan you are currently using, you will see more entries.
  • Billing - On this panel, you will be able to quickly see your subscription info and your recent payments.
  • License - Here you'll see similar subscription details as on the Billing page, but instead of your payments, you will see your License Members and Admin.
  • Tools: SFTP/Jenkins/GitLab - On these pages, you will find some useful tips on how to connect to your SFTP server or how to log into MDB GO GitLab and Jenkins accounts.

New MDB GO Homepage & Docs

With this version we have also redesigned and rebuilt our homepage along with the docs. It's a lot lighter now and much, much faster. We will continue working on the documentation to cover all the MDB GO features. Let us know how do you like it now!

New features:

  • All backend projects will have something called Container TTL. It's a time after which your container will be stopped, and you will have to start it again if you want your project to continue working. Currently, all paid plans will have unlimited Container TTL whereas free users will be affected by this change.
  • You will be able to manage License Admin and License Members, which means that you can add more people to your license depending on your plan limit.

  • As a new user you can now create a Project with Repository without errors
