What’s new?

Driver changes

The driver now supports the renameat2 syscall and works with new kernel stable 5.8 releases!

Installation experience

Before, users had to install libyaml in their systems, it’s not needed anymore.

Contributor experience

We have improved the contribution experience by rewriting the step by step instructions to run integration tests locally, the instructions can be found here.

Moreover, the build experience was improved as many users were reporting build problems on different operating systems, we took a chance to restructure our builds a bit and make them easier to work with.

Thanks to @leodido!

Outputs plugin developer experience

Outputs plugin developers and maintainers must be aware that gRPC was updated to 1.31.1. Please take your time to test and report issues, thank you!
