🔥 What's New?
Tabby has come a long way in the past months! The latest v0.6.0 release marks the beginning of Tabby's Chat Playground and a suite of enterprise-friendly features. Here are more:
📁 Retrieval-Augmented Code Generation 
Tabby now gains a deeper understanding of your private repository! With a simple config setup, Tabby will cleverly analyze variables, classes, methods, and function signatures (supporting 8+ programming languages and continually expanding!) within your repo to offer project-native code suggestions. Discover more in our blogpost!

☁️ Tabby on Modal GPU
No worries if you lack local GPUs for larger models. Tabby has supported smooth integration with Modal's cloud serverless cloud GPU and you can enjoy a more cost-effective pay-as-you-go plan! 

💬 Chat Playground
Chat Playground has been the secret gem among many power users for a while, quietly existing under the radar. Now it's finally coming to a fresh makeover with conversation history support. So, what's the next burning coding question you're itching to ask Tabby?

🐱 Enterprise Features (Preview)
We're advancing Tabby with a suite of features designed for enterprise scenarios. Key among these is the introduction of built-in distributed orchestration. More functionalities, such as User management / SSO / Secret Masking / DORA metrics are being actively developed!
If you're considering scaling out Tabby to more than a single node for your entire team, we invite you to our office-hour to discuss the challenges you are facing!

📊 Coding Eval and Leaderboard
We firmly believe in the continuous advancement in open source coding LLMs. However, having a reliable benchmark to monitor model improvement is critical for selecting the most suitable model for users. To demystify this process, we're excited to introduce the Coding LLMs Leaderboard.
