Google App Engine SDK 1.4.0 released

The version 1.4.0 of Google App Engine SDK has been released.

I would highlight 3 things on this release:

  • The taskqueues are now part of the official API, they are not experimental anymore 😉
  • They have multiplied by 20 the maximum time of execution on cron tasks and task queues. From 30 seconds to 600 seconds (10 minutes). This is awesome! although it can be dangerous. We’ll have to use this wisely 😉
  • Finally Channel API is now officially available to everybody.

The Channel API impressed me when I saw it in May. Following a talk about Channel API on Google IO. Is a technical talk and it only make sense to see it if you program on GAE or if you want to do an API for Comet:
