We have some exciting product news!

It’s been a busy start to 2020 for 51Degrees, not even a global pandemic stopping us from launching version 4 of our device detection, writing brand new documentation, creating new HASH datafiles and completely redesigning our website.

As part of the redesign for version 4 we have recently upgraded our Varnish API. So what’s new?

  • Datafiles – Smaller with far greater predictive power
  • Documentation – A whole redesign and new approach from our previous libraries. Helps you get up and running in no time.
  • Configure it your way
    • Set your drift and difference to match a wider range of character positions.
    • Choose a performance strategy that will suit your production environment.
    • Choose which graph method to use in the detection process, performance vs predictive.
    • Ability to handle matches that aren’t found.

We have released the source code on our GitHub repository and revamped the Varnish documentation.

If you are interested in participating in a trial of the API and willing to provide valuable feedback please get in touch, and we can provide you with access to getting up and running
