Kibana: This week in Kibana for August 21, 2017

Welcome to Keeping up with Kibana! This is a weekly series of posts on new developments in the Kibana project and any related learning resources and events.

Last week we released version Kibana 5.5.2 and 4.6.6 along with 2.4.6 of the x-plugins, these releases contain security fixes.

We've been working on 5.6.0 and 6.0 releases and testing upgrades between them. 

We're also making the new K7 UI design real by building out the UI Framework and the new CSS model.

Finally, we're working on a number of accessibility improvements for 6.0, watch for an upcoming blog post on the topic.

Speaking of blog posts, take a look at the Timelion Tutorial if you have a chance.
