Introducing a new filter type: regex

Hello Keen community!

We are happy to announce a new filter type — regex — to allow more complex searches on property names.

What is regex?

Regular expression (regex for short) is a string of text that allows you to create a match that helps you find a special combination of characters in text faster. It may seem like a different language at first, but mastering regular expressions can save you thousands of hours if you work with text or need to parse large amounts of data.
