API response times and latency were improved through tuning and optimisations in the underlying query engine.
Field Locking allows editors or backend applications to flag fields so that they are not overwritten by other automated processes such as ingest or other editors without explicit override.
This quarter marks a big push towards the overall goal of a reactive, data-driven pipeline for managing metadata within the platform. This revolves around building and operating reliable, fault-tolerant streaming applications - allowing us to move more of the existing platform features to this model, as well as increasing the velocity with which we can deliver new capabilities. Ultimately this will lead to the platform servicing a higher volume of in-flight metadata with lower end-to-end latencies.
We have enhanced deployment pipelines to enable region locality for all deployment artifacts ensuring our ability to deploy and scale in the face of any regional failure across cloud providers.
