  • Bug fixes

PipeRider OSS v0.25.0

  • Tracking schema changes: Previously, the profiling was a one-time scan of models with tags, including metadata fetching and execution profiling. Now, in the new version, we have separated the metadata collection and profiling into two distinct phases:

    1. PipeRider will gather all metadata to track schema changes for models, seeds, and sources.

    2. PipeRider will continue to profile only those models that have been tagged for profiling.

Feature deprecation notice

The following features are now deprecated and will be removed from a future version of PipeRider:

  • Using PipeRider in non-dbt projects

  • PipeRider assertions

These features are still included in PipeRider for the time being, but are not recommended for continued use.

  • AWS Athena Support: PipeRider now supports querying and profiling data stored in AWS Athena.
