Again, there is no corresponding InfluxDB OSS 1.9 release. While we continue to make improvements to the InfluxDB 1.x code line and these are being included within InfluxDB Enterprise releases, we are guiding our community users to InfluxDB 2.x at this time. Of course, you can always build InfluxDB 1.x from source code, if necessary. InfluxDB 2.x does include 1.x compatible interfaces to allow for reads and writes using the 1.x API. The latest open source release can be found on our downloads page.
