What's New

Check out the exciting new features and improvements we've been working on!

Coming Soon

Here's a sneak preview of what's coming:

  • Ability to use SQL command %datasource.BigQueryDatasource to query Google BigQuery

  • Import private library JAR files (Python, R, Spark)

  • Publish paragraphs for anyone to access

    • A feature requested by customers was the need to publish the results of a paragraph that could shared with anyone without the need to be a Zepl user. For example, a customer wanted to share the output from a paragraph to a WordPress intranet site to their company. The new publishing paragraphs feature provides the following benefits:

      1. Lets the user identify what paragraphs should be publicly accessible (at the paragraph level)

      2. Render a publicly accessible iFrame that can be accessed by anyone without being a Zepl user

      3. Ability to turn on/off access to that paragraph any time

      4. The link is updated with the most recent content and matches how the paragraph is formatted in the notebook (respect display settings)
