Version 1.0.0#

Date: 2023-05-17

The Panel 1.0 release is finally here and it brings a huge number of improvements. The largest improvements in this release come from an upgrade from Bokeh 2.x to Bokeh 3.x. Bokeh overhauled its internal layout engine and stylesheet handling, making applications significantly more performant and customizable going forward.

This release marks a huge step forward in the usability of Panel but is also just a first step in leveraging many of the new capabilities that the updated layout engine and design system affords. In the coming months we will continue to improve and polish the UI and UX and make it easier for you to extend Panel as needed.

For now we want to thank the many people that contributed to this release either by contributing directly or by testing and providing feedback. Many thanks to the core contributors @MarcSkovMadsen, @Hoxbro, @maximlt, @jbednar, @droumis and @philippjfr and the outside contributors @ahuang11, @cdeil, @MridulS, @AndrewMaged814, @midnighter and @wendrul.

Major Features#

The three main features we want to highlight as part of this release are:

Some of the changes related to the new layout engine and design system will require small updates to your existing applications. To make this transition as smooth as possible we have provided an upgrade/migration guide.

  • Add BasicAuth provider for quick password based auth (#4684)

  • Add FloatPanel layout (#4707, #4711)

  • Add a SlidesTemplate based on reveal.js to create interactive presentations (#4798)

Major enhancements#

There are also a number of major enghancements in this release that we are very excited about:

  • Add support for tooltips on widgets (#4130](https://github.com/holoviz/panel/pull/4130), #4621, #4643)

  • Ensure .ipynb and .md based apps can be used as --index (#4432)
