## What’s new for Monokle?🧐

Learning in public is hard.

As many of you know, the development of our Monokle Desktop project has been progressing at a lightning pace for some time. In striving to make happy users even happier, we made zealous efforts to roll out new features. 

Sadly, we got carried away and unintentionally rolled out a few quality and performance issues, too. We're so sorry our users have felt this pain. 

Our team is working non-stop to get our quality and performance back on track so you can enjoy everything Monokle offers. We’re thankful for the support our community is giving us as we progress. 

We’ve already fixed over 30 issues and have more fixes rolling out soon. Stay up to date with [our progress]( and let us know if we’ve missed anything. 

What’s coming?

- **A more powerful version of our Cloud IDE for Policy Enforcement.** Our free browser-based IDE will make it even easier to hook validations into your GitOps workflow with a GitHub Bot and better overall visibility of resources and team functions with a new Graph View.

- **A faster experience when connecting Desktop to your clusters.** Along with a massive performance overhaul that is in the works, Desktop users will enjoy an improved Cluster Insights Interface and Multiple Files Editor along with advanced capabilities for creating Helm charts and Kustomize overlays.

If you don’t see something you want or if you have an idea of how we can make Monokle fit your specific use case better, get in touch! Book a [30 min meeting]( with us or chat with our team via [Discord](
