The release goes on, “The Grafana 7.0 enhancements heavily focus on helping users and organizations across these key areas: (1) (Easier to) Connect and Unify All Your Data.

The release includes new logs support with open source Loki and tracing inputs from Zipkin and Jaeger. These augment Grafana’s existing community and enterprise commercial plugins ranging from the recently released ServiceNow enterprise plugin to popular open source projects (like Prometheus, Graphite and Elasticsearch) and proprietary sources (such as Splunk, Datadog, New Relic, Zabbix, Oracle), as well as users’ own custom data sources/API… (2) (Much More Power and Control to) Process and Transform Your Data. Transformations allow users to rename, summarize, combine, and perform calculations across queries and data sources.”
