According to a new press release, “Elastic N.V., creators of Elasticsearch, today announced the release of Elastic Stack 7.6.0, the latest version of the all-in-one datastore, search engine, and analytics platform. This release streamlines automated threat detection with the launch of a new SIEM detection engine and a curated set of detection rules aligned to the MITRE ATT&CK™ knowledge base, brings performance improvements to Elasticsearch, makes supervised machine learning more turnkey with inference-on-ingest features, and deepens cloud observability and security with the launch of new data integrations. Version 7.6 is available right now on Elasticsearch Service on Elastic Cloud — the only hosted Elasticsearch offering to include these new features. Or you can download the Elastic Stack for a self-managed experience.”
The release goes on, “Elastic has dramatically improved the performance of queries that are sorted by date or other long values by applying the block-max WAND optimization to sorted queries — a clever way to stop counting new results when they’re clearly not going to change the results. This is the same Block-Max WAND that made top-k hits queries faster in 7.0. Sorting on time is one of the most common tasks in observability and security use cases. Chasing down an error in the Elastic Logs app or investigating a threat in Discover are just a few of the many things that will be faster by simply upgrading to 7.6.”
