Hello Weaviate friends, πŸ€—

I am happy to see you here, as we have much to share. 😊

Weaviate 1.17

In the next release, you can look forward to the following:

  • Replication

  • Hybrid Search

  • BM25 Search

  • Faster Startup

  • Bug fixes and improvements

But I don't want to spoil anything, as we will share more once it is ready.

Usually, we aim to host Weaviate Air on the first Wednesday of the month. However, I have a feeling that we will need a bit more time to prepare for the opening of the 2023 season. πŸ˜‰

So, the next episode is scheduled for the 11th of January.
