Release Notes 11.05 - Syntropy Agent Golang Refactor

We're thrilled to announce the release of our Syntropy Golang Agent, replacing our previous Python-based agent. This new release is not an alternative option; rather, it's a complete refactor from scratch and a replacement going forward. It has all the features and capabilities of the previous agent, with barely any changes from the outside; however, we hope it will provide better performance and more sustainable development in the long term. We won't go into why Golang, as you can find zillion articles everywhere on the internet!

As of today, the python agent is deprecated, and all efforts are put into building the best Syntropy Agent in Go. At the moment, it's just a stable replica of the former, but new features are to be added.

The Baseline: For you as a Syntropy user, that won't change anything and won't affect any of your existing or future setup environments. You can consider this announcement just as FYI. Syntropy Agent setup has always been available to install via Docker or Ansible, and that doesn't change. We bet some didn't even know what the programming language of the current agent was!

As we progress our technology and grow the ecosystem, we listen closely to our community to build tools that matter. If you have any feedback or ideas, let’s talk on Discord.

Call to action: Update your Syntropy Agent to the latest version.

Open Source: the new Golang agent will be open-sourced in the near future.

Why the announcement: we love transparency and keeping our community in the loop.

What to expect: same existing functionality, better performance, and more future capabilities.

If you like the new updates and improvements, we look forward to hearing your feedback on Twitter or Discord.
