What's new in Stencil? - Issue #4
By Stencil Team • Issue #4 • View online
Hello everyone! This is Shulhi from Stencil 👋
Welcome back to another issue. It has been a few months since our last issue and we would like to give you some product updates and its roadmap.

⚡ Faster Image Generation
Two months ago we moved our image generation architecture to leverage on serverless architecture where it allows us to remove the need for a queuing system when you send an image generation request.
Recently, we made some improvements and managed to shave around ~500ms on each image generation. It may not sound a lot but it is definitely a noticeable improvement if you’re generating thousands of images. On average you would save 8.333 minutes per 1000 images.
We are always on the look to improve this further in the near future.
✨ Custom Font Support
Custom font support has been added recently too and it has been one of the most requested features.

🛣️ Roadmap - The next 3 months
These were not the only changes we made for the past few months, you can find more details here https://headwayapp.co/usestencil-changelog.
We have couple of new exciting features planned for the next few months.
  • Forms that will allow you to create a form to generate images. It is similar to what we have in Console screen but more friendly towards non-developer users.
  • (WIP) Face detection smart crop is a feature that uses machine learning to frame the image with emphasized on the detected faces.
  • and more… 🤫
