You can install the Bridge connector on any computer running any of the following supported operating systems:
- macOS 10.11 or later
- Windows 10 or Windows Server 2012 R2 or later
- Most 64-bit Linux distributions, including:
- Ubuntu 14.04 16.04 18.04 LTS
- Fedora 27, 28, 29
- Centos 6, 7
- Debian 8.0, 9.0
If you're using a Linux system not listed above, our success team can provide a generic tarball.
For more information on using Bridge connector, see the full documentation here.
Batch mode for BigQuery
We've added an option to batch query requests against BigQuery, to conserve database resources.
To use batch mode for BigQuery, simply toggle it on when setting up a new connection, or go to an existing connection's settings page to turn it on.
Support for DB2
Added a new connector for DB2. You can add your DB2 instance from the connection page.
Faster report rendering
Mode reports are now faster than ever.
You can now view parts of your report while others are still loading — each result will display as the query powering it returns.
Preview your data with one click
Now you can preview your data in Mode's SQL editor with one click. Hover over any table in the schema browser, and you'll see a play button. Click it to return the first 100 rows of this table, giving you a quick peek into your data.
This button adds a new code snippet (with the comment
—Returns first 100 rows from your.table) at the top of your query.
Please note: this feature is disabled for BigQuery and Athena connections, due to their pay-per-run structure.
