Change the color of the stat value depending on github release tag

I tried to create a query variable and a mixed data source, but it works only when the release date falls within the dashboard time range.

Is there a way to get the latest github release tag even it was a year ago and the dashboard time range is last week?

Have I missed something, or it’s impossible to do this? Should a feature request be opened for GitHub - grafana/github-datasource: Grafana data source plugin using the Github API to retrieve and visualize Github data.?

github plugin 1.5.2
grafana 10.2.1 from
