Revamped User Experience

In LitmusChaos 3.0, we’ve overhauled the user interface (UX) to provide a sleek and intuitive experience. The new UI is now using the Harness UIcore library, promising an even smoother user journey.

Environments for Chaos Infrastructure Organization

Environments allow users to organize and manage their Chaos Infrastructures more effectively. Whether you’re running chaos experiments in different clusters or environments, this feature will help streamline your operations.

Chaos Studio for Simplified Experiment Tuning

Introducing Chaos Studio, a powerful tool that simplifies the process of tuning your chaos experiments. With Chaos Studio, users can fine-tune chaos parameters and configurations with ease. Say goodbye to complex setup procedures and hello to streamlined chaos engineering.

Support for high availability of MongoDB

We are excited to announce that LitmusChaos 3.0 provides out-of-the-box support for MongoDB Replicas. You can now install MongoDB Replicas via Helm using Bitnami Mongo, seamlessly integrating chaos engineering into your MongoDB infrastructure.

Terminology Changes

We believe in clarity and consistency. In this release, we’ve refined our terminology to better reflect the functionality:

API Refactors and Improved Code Architecture
Behind the scenes, we’ve invested in extensive API refactoring, the addition of backend unit tests and code architecture improvements. These changes enhance the developer experience, making it easier to contribute to the LitmusChaos ecosystem. Visit LitmusChaos website for more info.

We can’t wait to see the incredible experiments and innovations that this release will inspire. Thank you for being a part of the LitmusChaos community!
