Airflow 1.10.8 contains 160 commits since 1.10.7 and includes 4 new features, 42 improvements, 36 bug fixes, and several doc changes.

We released 1.10.9 on the same day as one of the Flask dependencies (Werkzeug) released 1.0 which broke Airflow 1.10.8.


Some of the noteworthy new features (user-facing) are:

Add tags to DAGs and use it for filtering in the UI

In order to filter DAGs (e.g by team), you can add tags in each dag. The filter is saved in a cookie and can be reset by the reset button.

For example:

In your Dag file, pass a list of tags you want to add to DAG object:

dag = DAG(
    schedule_interval='0 0 * * *',

Screenshot: Add filter by DAG tags

Note: This feature is only available for the RBAC UI (enabled using rbac=True in [webserver] section in your airflow.cfg).

Special Note / Deprecations

Python 2

Python 2 has reached end of its life on Jan 2020. Airflow Master no longer supports Python 2. Airflow 1.10.* would be the last series to support Python 2.

We strongly recommend users to use Python >= 3.6

Use Airflow RBAC UI

Airflow 1.10.9 ships with 2 UIs, the default is non-RBAC Flask-admin based UI and Flask-appbuilder based UI.

The Flask-AppBuilder (FAB) based UI is allows Role-based Access Control and has more advanced features compared to the legacy Flask-admin based UI. This UI can be enabled by setting rbac=True in [webserver] section in your airflow.cfg.

Flask-admin based UI is deprecated and new features won’t be ported to it. This UI will still be the default for 1.10.* series but would no longer be available from Airflow 2.0
