Just weeks ago, we at FlowFuse announced our plan to develop a successor to the Node-RED Dashboard. Today, we're excited to reveal the pre-alpha release of this highly anticipated project, bringing us one step closer to a new era of data visualization in Node-RED.

In addition to these releases, we plan to publish regular blog posts titled "What's New in Node-RED Dashboard". These posts will keep you informed of all the latest features, updates, and improvements.
