Hello SSO

With the release of SAML SSO, Calibre now easily integrates with identity providers to allow your team to sign in with the same credentials as your other SSO-enabled services.

👪 Easier team management

SAML provides easy member management — co-workers will be able to get access to your team without having to receive an invitation.

📈 Performance budget improvements

We’ve updated how metric budgets are set, displayed and calculated to improve their usefulness (and fixed some bugs!)

Set budgets less than or greater than

When you set a metric budget you will now be prompted to set a value that you’re aiming to be less than or greater than, depending on the metric.

Moving averages

There was some ambiguity with how we calculated and displayed metric averages and this update hopes to clear that up.

✨ Other updates

Lighthouse 4.1

We’ve upgraded our test agents from Lighthouse 4.0-beta to 4.1 so the results you see in Calibre continue to be very close in release parity with the Chrome Developer Tools add-on and the Chrome extension.

Download Lighthouse JSON

It’s now possible to download the Lighthouse JSON of every test that Calibre conducts, which can be loaded into Lighthouse Viewer or processed manually for further analysis.

Update member roles

The ability to update member roles without having to remove and re-invite has been a long requested feature. You can now change member roles on the Team page!

💻 CLI & Node.JS API updates

We made a whole lot of improvements to CLI, our command line client and Node.JS API. Now you can download the screenshots, videos and lighthouse.json from any Calibre test. All that with a single command. We summarised the release in it’s own post. Read it here.

Last, but certainly not least

👨 Welcome Michael Dijkstra to the team!

We’re excited to announce the addition of Michael Dijkstra to our team as Platform Developer.
