VIZ-1673, VIZ-1729

Creating or editing a dataset from SQL is now easier with autocompletion and syntax highlighting available in the dataset modal.


The default file size limit for static asset upload has been increased to 100 MB. You can configure this limit using the DATA_UPLOAD_MAX_MEMORY_SIZE flag in Site Settings > > Advanced Settings. Updated limits are now correctly displayed in the UI.


The default row upload limit is now shown when importing data using CSV. For performance reasons, it is recommended to upload files of 50 MB or less.


Job logs can now be filtered by date range from the Job Status page.


When inputting custom colors for measure value ranges, it is now possible to include decimals for increased precision.


The ability to generate a custom or shortened URL alias when sharing a dashboard and to manage existing URL aliases is now available to all users by default. The Enable URL Shortener site setting used during the technical preview of the feature has been removed.


The number of HTTP worker threads available to the CDV server is now configurable using the HTTP_THREADS environment variable. A higher number of HTTP worker threads improves performance when serving a high number of concurrent requests.


Retrieving and changing the log level is now possible using the Admin API.
