Release Announcement: InfluxDB OSS 1.8.1

Navigate to:

A new maintenance release for InfluxDB OSS is available now.

This maintenance release of InfluxDB OSS includes the following fixes and improvements:

  • Optional feature:
    • Allow configuration for users to add custom HTTP response headers to InfluxDB. This allows users to supply headers to comply with internal security policies. This is achieved by first adding the http-headers configuration option. http-headers accepts a list of key value pairs containing headers and their values.
  • Performance improvements:
    • InfluxQL query planner now plans each field in parallel to improve planning time. Previously a query with multiple fields (e.g. SELECT SUM(x), COUNT(x)...) would plan each field one after another.
    • Improved performance of DELETE/DROP by batching tombstone writes.
  • Fixes and other improvements: 
    • Flux: Addressed regression issue where calling buckets() would cause a panic.
    • TSI: Addressed a couple of edge cases which resulted in segfaults.
    • TSI: Addressed deadlock when DROP and DELETE were issued through separate sessions.
    • Storage: Improved error handling when creating snapshots.

The binaries for the latest open source release can be found on our downloads page.
