CartoDB's major update on Nov 29 brings CartoDB 2.0 with Torque. Expect a 6-hour downtime, but your maps and visualizations will stay online.
This Thursday November 29th we will be releasing our biggest update yet to CartoDB. What this means for you is that there will be a period of approximately 6 hours downtime on the 29th at 2AM EST where your dashboard will not be accessible (We will post again once the process is complete). This does **NOT **mean however that your maps and visualizations will go offline. We’re upgrading in such a way as to keep all your work available.
CartoDB 2.0 is a big update and some of the features we’ve built in are as follows.
Additionally we'd like to add that we have some great plans for the future of CartoDB. The most immediate is the addition of Torque which will be available from within the CartoDB interface.
The most fundamental change though is probably the refactoring that has taken place which now allows us to build more and more visualization easily and safely into CartoDB. Of course with every big change there is the possibility we might have introduced bugs in the system we will be very closely monitoring the platform over the coming weeks and we will be ready to answer your questions quickly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope you'll love 2.0 and look forward for your feedback. Happy mapping!
