2.25.0 / 2021-02-17

This release includes a new --enable-feature= flag that enables experimental features. Such features might be changed or removed in the future.

In the next minor release (2.26), Prometheus will use the Alertmanager API v2. It will be done by defaulting alertmanager_config.api_version to v2. Alertmanager API v2 was released in Alertmanager v0.16.0 (released in January 2019).

Some changes to the Kubernetes service discovery were integration since it was released as a beta feature.

0.16.1 / 2015-10-16

  • [FEATURE] Add irate() function.
  • [ENHANCEMENT] Improved auto-completion in expression browser.
  • [CHANGE] Kubernetes SD moves node label to instance label.
  • [BUGFIX] Escape regexes in console templates.

0.16.0 / 2015-10-09


  • Release tarballs now contain the built binaries in a nested directory.
  • The hash_mod relabeling action now uses MD5 hashes instead of FNV hashes to achieve a better distribution.
  • The DNS-SD meta label __meta_dns_srv_name was renamed to __meta_dns_name to reflect support for DNS record types other than SRV.
  • The default full refresh interval for the file-based service discovery has been increased from 30 seconds to 5 minutes.
  • In relabeling, parts of a source label that weren't matched by the specified regular expression are no longer included in the replacement output.
  • Queries no longer interpolate between two data points. Instead, the resulting value will always be the latest value before the evaluation query timestamp.
  • Regular expressions supplied via the configuration are now anchored to match full strings instead of substrings.
  • Global labels are not appended upon storing time series anymore. Instead, they are only appended when communicating with external systems (Alertmanager, remote storages, federation). They have thus also been renamed from global.labels to global.external_labels.
  • The names and units of metrics related to remote storage sample appends have been changed.
  • The experimental support for writing to InfluxDB has been updated to work with InfluxDB 0.9.x. 0.8.x versions of InfluxDB are not supported anymore.
  • Escape sequences in double- and single-quoted string literals in rules or query expressions are now interpreted like escape sequences in Go string literals (

Future breaking changes / deprecated features:

  • The delta() function had an undocumented optional second boolean argument to make it behave like increase(). This second argument will be removed in the future. Migrate any occurrences of delta(x, 1) to use increase(x) instead.
  • Support for filter operators between two scalar values (like 2 > 1) will be removed in the future. These will require a bool modifier on the operator, e.g. 2 > bool 1.
