This blog post is a public copy of our monthly newsletter sent on December 8th. If you’d like to receive upcoming updates by email, you can subscribe to our newsletter here.

This will be our last newsletter of 2023, so it’s filled with tons of updates like the Temporal .NET SDK is now Generally Available!

We will also be hosting a webinar next week to discuss how workflows are written with the new .NET SDK and the interesting challenges encountered during the development of SDKs.

For more information on these updates and other things we’ve been working on, just keep reading! And as always, we’d love to hear from you—feel free to share feedback in our Community Slack, or on Twitter (@temporalio).

Notable New Technology Features:

  • Schedules, a flexible and durable replacement for traditional Cron jobs, are now Generally Available.
  • The Temporal .NET SDK is now Generally Available and can be leveraged by all Temporal users. Learn more in this blog post.
  • The preview feature Workflow Update is now available in the Python SDK and .NET SDK.

SDK Updates:

  • The .NET SDK 1.0.0 release brings General Availability support to users.
  • Python SDK 1.4.0 adds support for Typed Search Attributes and advanced metrics, and the experimental API for Workflow Update. Note there are a couple small breaking changes for search attributes and telemetry — see the release notes for more information.
