  • Kibana 5.6.2 -> 6.3.2

  • Mostly style changes to fit the new theme in v6.

Tested with 6.3.2 - prior (6.x) versions uses node 6.12 which is unable to load the native argon2-ffi libraries. We only support kibana 6.3.2 and up from now on.

Note: does not work with 6.4 due to major breaking changes.
Note; the attached zip only works on windows - more platforms available in the next release.
