new? page in the Seq documentation.
Shipped in 2023
- New parallel-dataflow query engine A new, unified storage architecture scales better
on multicore hardware, and uses indexes more effectively, yielding order-of-magnitude response time improvements for many
- Easier management in Docker and Kubernetes A range of updates make Seq work in
harmony with container hosts, in a wider range of environments.
- OpenTelemetry log ingestion A native log ingestion endpoint for the OpenTelemetry
Logs protocol (OTLP) — update 1,
- Auditing Built-in audit of security- and confidentiality-relevant events occurring
on a Seq instance.
- Redesigned datepicker and date range navigation Simpler selection of
last-X-intervals and custom ranges in the Events and Dashboards views.

What are we working on now?
- High-cardinality indexes Opt-in to defining indexes on high-cardinality
log fields such as request and trace identifiers.
What's coming up?
- High availability (HA) Automatically fail-over between Seq cluster nodes.
- Scale-out query execution Fully utilize cluster resources when executing large
queries and searches.
- Native metrics ingestion Ingest and store pre-aggregated metric data using
OpenTelemetry and/or Prometheus protocols.
- WASM app hosting and isolation Run plug-in Seq Apps using a sandboxed WASM
- SCIM/SAML integration Expose SCIM/SAML endpoints for IdP integration.
There are a lot more smaller improvements planned than we can include here. If you're curious what else is on our
radar, or want to discuss any of the roadmap features in more detail, please reach out to our support team or
