Numbers don’t lie — and the data shows that in a year in which we, once again, endured unpredictable changes, Grafana experienced unparalleled success with:
- 374 Grafana contributors
- 7,000 PRs for Grafana OSS
- 22 new plugins published
- 293 plugins updated
- 42 million plugins downloaded
In June, we introduced Grafana 8.0, which included unified alerting, new visualizations, real-time streaming, and more. Since then we have introduced a host of new features as well as new data source plugins that only reinforce Grafana’s commitment to our “big tent” philosophy.
Here is a recap of the new features, plugins, and integrations that were added to Grafana this year. We can’t wait to collaborate with the Grafana community and see what the new year will bring!
