Breaking changes

In the Loki data source, for consistency and performance reasons, we changed how we represent NaN (not a number) values received from Loki. In the past versions, we converted these to null in the frontend (for dashboard and explore), and kept as NaN in the alerting path. Starting with this version, we will always keep it as NaN. This change should be mostly invisible for the users. Issue #45389

The dependency to grafana/aws-sdk is moved from grafana/ui to the plugin. This means that any plugin that use SIGV4 auth need to pass a SIGV4 editor component as a prop to the DataSourceHttpSettings component. Issue #43559
