The Vector team is pleased to announce version 0.15.2!
This release contains a fix for
vector validate to source environment variables indicating configuration
In v0.15.0, we released a change the SystemD unit file to run
vector validate before start-up as part of
ExecStartPre. If users were using, for example,
/etc/default/vector to pass the
configuration location, this would result in Vector failing to boot.
See the release notes for 0.15.0 for additional changes if upgrading from 0.14.X.
We’ve heard from a number of users that they’d like improved delivery guarantees for events flowing through Vector. We are working on a feature to allow, for components that are able to support it, to only acknowledging data flowing into source components after that data has been sent by any associated sinks. For example, this would avoid acknowledging messages in Kafka until the data in those messages has been sent via all associated sinks.
This release includes support in additional source and sink components that support acknowledgements, but it has not yet been fully documented and tested. We expect to officially release this with 0.16.0.
We are hard at work at expanding the ability to run Vector as an aggregator in Kubernetes. This will allow you to build end-to-end observability pipelines in Kubernetes with Vector. Distributing processing on the edge, centralizing it with an aggregator, or both. If you are interested in beta testing, please join our chat and let us know.
We do expect this to be released with 0.16.0.
