Welcome to Hub 2017.3
Hub 2017.3 introduces authentication throttling, OAuth 2.0 presets for GitLab and Bitbucket Cloud and experimental features.
In Hub 2017.3 it is possible to set up throttling for login attempts and verification of user credentials to prevent brute-force attacks and increase data security. When you enable this feature, the Hub authentication module applies rate limits to logins and requests to verify credentials.
Now you can sign in Hub with your GitLab or Bitbucket Cloud accounts. All of the endpoints and mappings that are required for setup have been configured for you. All you have to do is register Hub in the connected authorization service and enable the authentication module.
Starting from Hub 2017.3 you can enable experimental features for your Hub installation. These features are in early or intermediate stages of development. This strategy lets us get feedback for a feature as we work on it, learning more about what you want to see in the final product.
If you are an administrator, simply enable the features you want to try on the Feature Configuration page. This page shows the features that you can enable system-wide and other features that you can enable for specific groups.
As a part of experimental features we have added a possibility to add custom widgets for the dashboards. You can create a widget in any IDE and load it for testing on the widgets playground page with only few clicks. After the widget is ready, you can upload it and add it to your dashboard. This feature lets you extend the functionality of your dashboards to grab content from external sources or present data from Hub in a unique format.
