Vector v0.18.1 release notes

The Vector team is pleased to announce version v0.18.1!

This patch release contains a few bug fixes for regressions in v0.18.0.

Note: Please see the release notes for v0.18.0 for additional changes if upgrading from v0.17.X. In particular, the upgrade guide for breaking changes.

Bug Fixes:

  • The new automatic namespacing feature broke usages of --config-dir when directories were present that did not match Vector’s config schema. Vector now just ignores these directories and only looks at known namespacing directories like sources/. #10173 #10177.
  • The elasticsearch sink no longer logs a debug message for each event. #10117.
  • The remap transform now only creates the .dropped output (as part of the new failed event routing feature) whenever reroute_dropped = true. #10152
  • A change to internal telemetry had caused aggregated histograms emitted by the prometheus_exporter and prometheus_remote_write sinks to be incorrectly tallied. This was fixed. #10165
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.
