Welcome to the Seq documentation hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with Seq as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

What's New in 2020.5?

Seq 2020.5 is the first Seq version to run under .NET 5, bringing further improvements in execution time for some fundamental queries:

Seq 2020.5 query performance against 2020.4 and 5.1, with data served from memory and from/to dates specified.

In 2020.5, Seq plug-in apps and inputs run under the open-source seqcli app host, making development easier and cross-platform deployment more reliable.

We've also managed to save some bytes to shrink the Windows installer (34%) and Docker image (16%, compressed).

Oh, and workspaces have been redesigned: you can now associate default signals with a workspace, and they'll be activated when you switch between workspaces 😎.

What's Next

Ready to upgrade? Seq 2020.5 is a highly-compatible, in-place upgrade from earlier versions. Most upgrades are as simple as [running the installer](docs:getting-started) or [pulling the new Docker image](docs:getting-started-with-docker), but if you have a custom integration into the Seq API, check out [the full compatibility notes](docs:upgrading) for all the details.
