Upgrading Vector
When upgrading, we recommend stepping through minor versions as these can each contain breaking changes while Vector is pre-1.0. These breaking changes are noted in their respective upgrade guides.


4 bug fixes

  • The datadog_metrics sink now properly encodes rate metrics received from the datadog_agent source.
  • The expire_metrics_secs setting is now correctly applied to expire timeseries not seen in the configured number of seconds.
  • Options that take a field name (like the global timestamp_key option) can now be disabled again by supplying an empty string ("") for the config option.
  • VRL now longer returns an incorrect invalid type error for closures (“block returns invalid value type”).
