Release Announcement: InfluxDB OSS 2.0.3

2 minutes

A new maintenance release for InfluxDB OSS is available now.  Thank you to all the community members who have downloaded and used this latest release. We’ve gotten a couple of important defects addressed here and made some other improvements based on early feedback.

New Packaging

Preview: ARM64 Builds 

Most importantly, we have our initial builds for ARM64 available. You will find on the downloads page ARM64 packages now available including DEB and RPM along with the usual generic Linux tarball. Please consider these preview releases.  We are eager to work with our community members on ensuring that these are working well for everyone running ARM64!

DEB and RPMs

We’ve renamed the InfluxDB v2 DEB and RPM packages to clarify versions. The package name is now influxdb2 and conflicts with any previous influxdb package (including initial 2.0.0, 2.0.1, and 2.0.2 packages).

This release also defines v2-specific path defaults and provides helper scripts for influxd upgrade and cleanup cases.

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

  • Upgrading from 1.x to 2.x
    • We’ve made an important change to how the influxd upgrade command works in terms of the handling of the underlying configuration file to make the behavior more consistent.  Check the release notes for more details.  If you’ve already upgraded, you may need to supply the --v2-config-path when you restart, if the location of the config.toml ended up in an a-typical location based on the previous behavior.
  • Selective delete of data
    • Previously, you would have to drop the entire bucket of data to clean-up errors or issues. With this release, you can now selectively drop data using the delete CLI or API directly.
  • CLI improvements
    • Allow password to be specified as a CLI option for both influx v1 auth create and influx v1 auth set-password.
    • We improved ID-related error messages for influx v1 dbrp commands.
  • Flux and LSP Support
    • Flux has advanced to version 0.99. See the release notes for more details including the introduction of dictionary types which support key-value lookups.
    • LSP has also advanced to version 0.5.25 within the browser to address some minor issues.

If you find issues or have questions, please join our InfluxDB Community Slack, post them in our InfluxDB GitHub Repo or our Community Site and we will take a look.

  1. Hi, I get this message when try to upgrade from v2.0.2:

    dpkg: regarding influxdb2_2.0.3_amd64.deb containing influxdb2:
     influxdb2 conflicts with influxdb
      influxdb (version 2.0.2) is present and installed.
    dpkg: error processing archive influxdb2_2.0.3_amd64.deb (--install):
     conflicting packages - not installing influxdb2

    Well, as it says in the announcement message which you replied to and quoted:

    “We’ve renamed the InfluxDB v2 DEB and RPM packages to clarify versions. The
    package name is now influxdb2 and conflicts with any previous influxdb package
    (including initial 2.0.0, 2.0.1, and 2.0.2 packages).”

    So, my suggestion is that you allow influxdb2 to install, and remove the
    conflicting influxdb along the way, ensuring that your data directory is not
    affected (ie: take a backup first).
