- Full changelog
Showing the tooltip on all panels at the same time has been a long standing request in Grafana and we are really happy to finally be able to release it.
You can enable/disable the shared tooltip from the dashboard settings menu or cycle between default, shared tooltip and shared crosshair by pressing
CTRL + O or
CMD + O.
Help text for panel
You can set a help text in the general tab on any panel. The help text is using Markdown to enable better formating and linking to other sites that can provide more information.
Panels with a help text available have a little indicator in the top left corner. You can show the help text by hovering over the icon.
Easier Cloudwatch configuration
In Grafana 4.1.0 you can configure your Cloudwatch data source with
access key and
secret key directly in the data source configuration page.
This enables people to use the Cloudwatch data source without having access to the filesystem where Grafana is running.
access key and
secret key have been saved the user will no longer be able to view them.
Upgrade & Breaking changes
Elasticsearch 1.x is no longer supported. Please upgrade to Elasticsearch 2.x or 5.x. Otherwise Grafan 4.1.0-beta1 contains no breaking changes.
