- InfluxDB 2.0.8 release notes
Upcoming changes to CLI packaging
Beginning with the next minor version (2.1.0), the InfluxDB CLI (
influx command) will no longer be packaged in releases from the InfluxDB repository (influxdata/influxdb). Future versions of the InfluxDB CLI will instead be released from the influx-cli repository. Users who wish to adopt the new InfluxDB CLI today can download the latest release from the InfluxData Downloads Portal.
Breaking change for Mac OS Users
- This release upgrades the project to go version 1.16. Because of the version bump to go, the macOS build for this release requires at least version 10.12 Sierra to run.
- Disable the Browser UI - Added
influxdto allow for running with the UI disabled.
