🌟 Highlights 🌟

🚀 Xano Plans: Major Performance Upgrades, A New Launch Plan, & More

Major Performance Upgrades

We made some huge enhancements to all of our plans including a 40% performance increase to ALL of our paid plans.

A New Launch Plan

Earlier this month, we unveiled a more powerful, feature-rich Launch plan at a new price starting at $85/month annually or $99/month monthly. Some of the new features include:

  • Branching & Merging

  • Test Data Source

  • Cloud Storage Functions

  • 2X Performance Boost For Background Tasks

Existing Launch users don't need to upgrade to the new, enhanced Launch plan but can do so at a 20% discount before September 30th. The discount will automatically be applied at checkout.

A More Generous Free Plan

Our free plan is as generous as ever:

  • Record limit raised from 10,000 to 100,000 records!

  • API Rate Limit of 500 requests/day removed.

More Awesome Enhancements

  • Upgrade to unlimited background tasks for $29/mo

  • Scale Plan

    • Improved load balancing capacity

    • 2X performance boost on background tasks

    • Enterprise features available as add-ons (Database connectors, RBAC, Xano Link, and Static IP)

Not sure what plan to choose? We made a quick video to help you decide.

🦾 Try/Catch

Introducing the Try/Catch function! Try/Catch is a common programming statement that allows for error handling if detected in a set of logic, known as Try. If an error does occur, you can define another set of logic to execute called Catch. Learn more about this useful function in the video below.

⚙️ Direct Database Connector

The Direct Database Connector allows you to interact directly with the Xano PostgreSQL database and connect it to an external service that requires direct access. Previously, this was reserved as an Entperise feature but it's now available as an add-on for Scale plans! Read more in our documentation here.

ℹ️ Debug Log

Debug Log allows you to output data or messages to a temporary log, very similar to Javascript's console log feature. This can be useful for debugging long-running loops, larger function stacks, or just giving you quicker access to reviewing certain data points during execution.

You may have used Stop & Debug for something similar in the past; Debug Log takes this a huge step forward by allowing multiple data points to be logged without stopping the execution of the function stack.

🔍 Function Search

We added a search bar to the Add Function menu so you can quickly find and add functions to your function stack to reduce clicks.

🏗️ Other Notable Product Enhancements

  • CSV Stream - efficiently iterate through CSV files regardless of file size without requiring large amounts of memory.

  • Static IP - Static IP address for outgoing API requests is now available as an add-on. This is commonly required by 3rd party API providers requiring an IP whitelist.

  • Whitelist/Denylist IP - new support within the Security Policy (Enterprise feature) for Whitelist/Denylist for IP addresses to control access to your API endpoints.

👀 Coming Soon

Have you checked out our roadmap? Here's a sneak peek at some things we're working on:

  • Console.log for Lambdas

  • Webp support for images

  • Support for automatically updating references to renamed database fields
