October 23rd, 2008 | Published in Google App Engine
Many of you have expressed interest in learning about what's coming next for Google App Engine, and although we've often talked about features we plan on supporting, we've decided to publish this roadmap along with our documentation. Without further ado, here's what we've got coming up in the next 2 quarters:
- Service for storing and serving large files
- Datastore import and export utility for large-scale databases
- Billing: developers can pay for more resource usage
- Support for a new runtime language
- Uptime monitoring site
At Google we've historically avoided giving release dates for our products because we know that software development is incredibly hard to predict. Thus, it should be noted that while we're working hard on these features, development schedules do slip at times, and the dates below may change. We'll do our best to update this roadmap as our engineers continue development.
For reference, since our release in April, we've already added:
- 10/16/08 - HTTPS support for *.appspot.com
- 10/14/20 - Logs for Admin Console usage, and regex filtering for application logs
- 9/18/08 - CPU usage details added to logs and dashboard, zipimport, zipserve, memcache viewer
- 8/22/08 - Multi-entity group batch writes and deletes
- 7/24/08 - Logs export capability, more apps for everyone!
- 5/28/08 - Memcache and Image Manipulation API, Open Signups
- 5/15/08 - App Engine Launcher for Mac
- 4/8/08 - App Engine Limited Preview Release launches!
