0.6.0 (2022-01-28)

Breaking changes

This release bumps the minimum required Grafana to >=8.0. Grafana 8 introduces a new theming engine for panel plugins.

  • If you're running a Grafana version before 8.0, you should stay with v0.5.0.
  • If you're running Grafana 8.0 or above, you should update to v0.6.0.

0.5.0 (2021-09-06)

Features / Enhancements

  • Data links support (#25)
  • New details view: Instead of relying on tooltips, this version uses an inline drawer to display additional details. I like this better, but the built-in drawer component has some limitations. I'm not sure I like that it's a modal for example. I might end up creating a custom sidebar component. Let me know what you think about the new design!
