New hyperparam generators for dates and datetimes

Users can now generate new types of hyperparam values of type dates and datetimes, examples:

    kind: datetimerange
    value: ['2019-06-22 21:00', '2019-06-25 21:00', 3600]
    kind: daterange
    value: ['2019-06-22', '2019-07-25', 2]

Backfill scheduling strategy

Although it was always possible to perform backfill operations, either using a manual mapping or using the Python client to loop and trigger operations. With the new dates or datetimes, and the grid search, users can perform backfills in an automated way while leveraging features like concurrency, pipeline progress, and pipeline grouping and analytics:

version: 1.1
kind: operations
  dummy_input1: { value: 'test' }
  dummy_input2: { value: 10 }
  kind: grid
  concurrency: 1
      kind: daterange
      value: ['2021-05-01', '2021-05-08', 1]

For more information please refer to this guide on backfills in the scheduling guides.
