Changes in v4.6
This version of Grafana has big changes that will impact a limited set of plugins. We moved from systemjs to webpack for built-in plugins & everything internal. External plugins still use systemjs but now with a limited set of Grafana components they can import. Plugins can depend on libs like lodash & moment and internal components like before using the same import paths. However since everything in Grafana is no longer accessible, a few plugins could encounter issues when importing a Grafana dependency.
If you think we missed exposing a crucial lib or Grafana component let us know by opening an issue.
The angular directive
<spectrum-picker> is now deprecated (will still work for a version more) but we recommend plugin authors
to upgrade to new
<color-picker color="ctrl.color" onChange="ctrl.onSparklineColorChange"></color-picker>
