A lot of things happened in October. Here are some highlights:

PubSub+ Event Portal 2.0

On October 4, Solace announced version 2.0 of PubSub+ Event Portal. The new release transforms the way architects and developers design, lifecycle manage, and govern event-driven APIs and applications across a variety of brokers, including Solace, Apache Kafka, Confluent and Amazon MSK.

The new version offers new lifecycle management capabilities, easier integration with software development tools, and the ability to create event APIs, among other things. Read this Event Portal 2.0 community summary post for all the relevant links to supporting content, like:

SoIOS Version Retrieval Tip

A developer was wondering how to retrieve the SolOS version, so I wrote a short tip and trick in the community. Drop a comment in the discussion if you find it helpful. And if you have a tip or trick of your own, please share it with the community so others can benefit!
