Release Notes » Yadle Tesla Release

Release Date: November 6th, 2020

Several “minor” releases have been pushed in between the major Albert and Tesla releases.

The Yadle Tesla release is focused on performance and security. The Yadle agent has been tuned to achieve maximum throughput during initial indexing as well as subsequent change detection scans. The ability to scale out Yadle with multiple agents has also been enabled. Throw as many resources as possible at Yadle for initial indexing and scale back once the bulk has been scanned. Security is always top of mind here at Yadle and have now made HTTPS the default communication protocol for Self-Hosted customer deployment. One of the most exciting announcements in the Tesla release is support for indexing Google Drive and Dropbox cloud services!
