This new version of Shard-Query is vastly improved over previous versions in many ways. This is in large part due to the fact that the previous version of Shard-Query (version 1.1) entered into production at a large company. Their feedback during implementation was invaluable in building the new Shard-Query features. The great thing is that this means that many of the new 2.0 features have already been tested in at least one production environment.
This post is intended to highlight the new features in Shard-Query 2.0. I will be making posts about individual features as well as posting benchmark results.
