Self-hosted Retool 2.123

Release notes for Self-hosted Retool 2.123. First released on June 15th, 2023.


We have brought our fastest performance runtime to Self-hosted Retool 2.123 - some apps have improved load times by as much as 75%. You will be able to opt in your whole organization from advanced settings or opt in individual apps in the editor mode. This will be the last version where the legacy runtime will be supported, as performance runtime will be the only option in the next version.
