New features

  • Fully secure by default out of the box. Unsecure access via http is not allowed anymore by default. This might force you to re-authenticate with your API_SECRET or token if you were using unsecure access. (@PieterGit )
  • No outdated packages with vulnerabilities are being used anymore (@PieterGit )
  • Add Week to Week report (@jpcunningh, #4123 )
  • Add Loopalyzer report to analyse looping. Visualize your loop (@lixgbg, #3629 #4235 )
  • Add predictions support to Day to Day report (@lixgbg, #3179 )
  • Add cgm sensor stop to Careportal (@jpcunningh, #4060)

Removed features

  • remove mqtt module, because it had a security issue and was not used
  • remove sgvdata module, because it had a security issue, added a lot of complexity and wasn't needed (@PieterGit ). Replacement implementation for CSV and TSV export (@sulkaharo ).

Bug fixes

Documentation and language updates

  • Language updates for Danish, Dutch, German, Hebrew, Norwegian, Russian
  • New languages: Japanese, Turkish
  • Update Alexa documentation. Note that some Alexa improvements are postponed to Nightscout 0.12 because the Alexa plugin needs refactoring, see #4168 (comment)
  • Update IFTTT maker-setup.md docs (@Dave9111, @unsoluble, #4206 )
  • Updated various docs, including CONTRIBUTING documentation

Upgrade notes

  • We only allow Nightscout to start with a secure Node JS.
    • Latest Node 8 LTS (8.15.0 or later) and Latest Node 10 LTS (10.15.1 or later) are recommended and supported.
    • Latest Node version on Azure (currently 10.14.0) is tolerated, but not recommended
    • Other versions will not start
  • The rawbg settings are converted to a single setting tri-state variable.
  • We improved security and added several new environment variables such as INSECURE_USE_HTTP and SECURE_HSTS_HEADER
    • Your site redirects to https by default. If you don't want that or use a Nginx or Apache proxy, set INSECURE_USE_HTTP to true.
    • We enabled HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) headers by default, settings SECURE_HSTS_HEADER and SECURE_HSTS_HEADER_*

Upgrade notes for Azure users

We recommend Azure users consider migrating their hosting to Heroku, as we've observed Heroku users have significantly less issues with having their sites work reliably. If you want to continue using Azure, change the following configuration variables in Azure before updating to the latest Nightscout version:
