Many thanks to the 50+ open source community members who contributed to this effort!

Key feature highlights from the release include:

  • Official packages built with Go 1.13.3.
  • The prometheus input and prometheus_client output have a new mapping to and from Telegraf metrics, which can be enabled by setting metric_version = 2. The original mapping is deprecated. When both plugins have the same setting, passthrough metrics will be unchanged. Refer to the prometheus input for details about the mapping.
