Where to learn about new grafana releases?

release

#1

I’d like to keep my monitoning system up to date, therefore I’m using a few cues about relevant software being updated / released. I usually use RSS from gitlab releases page, periodically check certain repo URLs and whatnot, to upgrade my chef recipes when a new version comes out. Sometimes, RSS is not sufficient, when the code itself has not been updated, yet package contents did.

I’ve done the latter with Grafana, until Packagecloud repo has been moved to S3. Now we have more architectures in the repos (yay!), but suddenly, browseability became an issue to me (nay!).

Is there an alternative way to either look at the contents of the repos, or learn about new releases while not using apt / yum directly?

https://github.com/grafana/grafana/releases for humans.
API - https://grafana.com/api/, probably you will want to use https://grafana.com/api/grafana/versions for machines.

Got it, thanks. It’s a bit confusing, though, as the documentation says 5.4.2-1 as an example, according to the releases page, it should be 5.4.3-something, but the latest @ stable repo (well, it’s not stable, but https://packages.grafana.com/oss/rpm) is 6.0.0-beta1. By the way, I was under the impression that 6.0.0-beta1 will go to https://packages.grafana.com/oss/rpm-beta and not to …/rpm repo.

Is there a way to learn about the full release version names, like 5.4.2-1?
