Release: Oso 0.14.0 is out, now with built-in Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) policies in Ruby

Ever since releasing our first built-in Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) policies in Python and Node, we've had developers using other languages asking when they can have some ❤️.

Ruby developers, today is your day.

Built-In Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) in Ruby

The Oso Ruby library now has built-in support for RBAC policies, which you can turn on with OSO.enable_roles. See the guide to try it out. We also made some UX improvements to code reloading in development, courtesy of one of the new engineers on our team, Graham Kaemmer.

Other Bug Fixes and Improvements

We also snuck in some longstanding requests, such as:

  • The ability for users to configure query timeouts
  • Variables that occur just once in a rule are now errors (before they were warnings), courtesy of our newest engineer, Gwen Whelan.

Community Contributions

  • Big thanks to @MFAshby for bringing the Expression type to Java. This takes Martin and other Java users much closer to getting RBAC policies in Java, as well as data filtering in Java. Keep it up, Martin!
  • Thanks to Oso community member @tomashozman, we are also releasing sqlalchemy-oso 0.10.0 today, which now has cleaner imports.

For more details on these and other changes, read the changelog.
