Welcome to Fine Grained News, June 2024 edition!

This is where we share what has been going on in the OpenFGA community during the last 30 days :).

What are we working on?

  • We started adding OpenTelemetry instrumentation to our SDKs. We just shipped metrics support for Python and Javascript. We'll continue with tracing and logging, and we'll be adding support for Java, Go and .NET next.

  • We are close to ship a first iteration to add additional consistency options for OpenFGA.

  • We are working with Krishna Kumar and Eddie Knight from the CNCF Tag-Security team on a joint security assessment for OpenFGA. We are pretty close to wrapping it up! You can follow the progress in this PR.

  • We'll be working on adding authorization for OpenFGA APIs.

  • We've identified a few areas where we can improve performance and we are actively working on them.

If you have any feedback, or want to try a feature early, or are interested to learn more, please reach out!
