Release Notes v7.0.x

Grafana v7.0 brings new features, many enhancements and bug fixes.

Breaking changes

  • Removed PhantomJS: PhantomJS was deprecated in Grafana v6.4 and starting from Grafana v7.0.0, all PhantomJS support has been removed. This means that Grafana no longer ships with a built-in image renderer, and we advise you to install the Grafana Image Renderer plugin.
  • Dashboard: A global minimum dashboard refresh interval is now enforced and defaults to 5 seconds.
  • Interval calculation: There is now a new option Max data points that controls the auto interval $__interval calculation. Interval was previously calculated by dividing the panel width by the time range. With the new max data points option it is now easy to set $__interval to a dynamic value that is time range agnostic. For example if you set Max data points to 10 Grafana will dynamically set $__interval by dividing the current time range by 10.
  • Datasource/Loki: Support for deprecated Loki endpoints has been removed.
  • Backend plugins: Grafana now requires backend plugins to be signed, otherwise Grafana will not load/start them. This is an additional security measure to make sure backend plugin binaries and files haven’t been tampered with. Refer to Upgrade Grafana for more information.
  • Docker: Our Ubuntu based images have been upgraded to Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
  • @grafana/ui: Forms migration notice, see @grafana/ui changelog
  • @grafana/ui: Select API change for creating custom values, see @grafana/ui changelog

Deprecation warnings

  • Scripted dashboards is now deprecated. The feature is not removed but will be in a future release. We hope to address the underlying requirement of dynamic dashboards in a different way. #24059
  • The unofficial first version of backend plugins together with usage of grafana/grafana-plugin-model is now deprecated and support for that will be removed in a future release. Please refer to backend plugins documentation for information about the new officially supported backend plugins.
