The Release Bonanza returns! The train rolls on! Other release related sayings!
Today, we are pleased to release Elasticsearch 2.4, Kibana 4.6, Beats 1.3, and updated versions of all the commercial products.
The fun doesn’t stop here….
Have you been using the alpha release of 5.0? Have you enjoyed the ability to create reports (either on-demand, scheduled, or event-based)? Do you wish that was available for your use today?
We are happy to report, Reporting!
Reporting matters, so much so that we wrote an entire blog post about it. Put simply, reporting lets you share the Kibana <3 via PDF.
Oh, and did we mention. Reporting is also available in Elastic Cloud. Simply upgrade to 2.4 and report away.
