Pyramid 2023.13 Released

 Pyramid 2023.13, a service pack for Pyramid 2023, has been released. It primarily includes fixes and adjustments for critical vulnerabilities in 3rd party technologies. There are also breaking changes.

  • The main installer files and client SDKs can be downloaded from the Customer Portal
  • Docker containers have been upgraded for Kubernetes deployments.
  • Upgraded Embed API libraries can be downloaded from NPM.
  • Main Installation guidance can be found here.
  • Help for upgrades can be found here.
  • Help on how to test an upgrade before deployment can be found here.
  • Help for Kubernetes deployments can be found here.

Pyramid 2023.13 includes a number of changes to existing capabilities and BREAKING CHANGES (see below). As such, Pyramid recommends that the new release be tested on a duplicate version of an existing content database repository before any production upgrades are applied.

Further, a database repository backup should be made before upgrading any production systems and repositories.

Additions and Deprecations

Breaking Changes

There will be BREAKING CHANGES in this release related to R and Tensorflow. Both of these 3rd party technologies have critical vulnerabilities which require upgrades. To address this, Pyramid has upgraded both items in this release. However, the upgraded versions of R (4.4.0) and Tensorflow (2.16.1) MAY NOT BE BACKWARDS COMPATIBLE with any models or scripts created with prior versions of either technology. This means customers may need to adjust scripts and/or rebuild models. These breaking changes are out of Pyramid's control

Technology Changes

OS Deprecations

Pyramid 2023.13 will be the last version of Pyramid to support the following operating systems, which are now end of life or out of standard support:

  • Red Hat Linux 7
  • CentOS 7
  • Oracle Linux 7
  • Ubuntu 16 and 18
  • Debian 10

Customers should be migrating any Pyramid instances running on these operating systems to newer editions.

Python Upgrade

From 2023.13, the standard Pyramid Python environment will be based on Python 3.11. Any scripts or models that were built using an earlier version of Python or the prior Pyramid Python environment (3.7) should continue to work, unless specific Python packages have breaking changes. Customers are advised to start using the new version of Python for all new projects going forward.

New DS/ML service containers

As of 2023.13, Pyramid will publish 2 different containers for the Data Science and Machine Learning service in Kubernetes deployments. The standard DS/ML container is the same as previous releases and will allow customers to build custom Python environments as needed using live Python repositories. However, a new Full DSML container will also be released - containing a COMPLETE installation of the Anaconda system for building offline Python environments. This approach is useful for detached deployments where access to live Python repositories is unavailable. Unless required, the standard container is strongly recommended.

New Features

  • Added a new connector for IBM Informix databases
  • Added new LLM model options for Gen-BI integrations: Mistral and Google Gemini
  • New notifications within the mobile apps
  • New PQL functions: 3 in Granular Date-Time and 2 in Semantic Statistics
  • New "Full" DSML container with the entire Anaconda Python repository pre-installed (see above)
