Hi all,

a new pre-release of collectd 6, version 6.0.0.rc2, is available. There
also was an "rc1" release last week and I'll summarize both below. That
plan is to have more frequent, smaller releases to get fixes and features
into users' hands faster.

Most important changes:
* Floating point counters have been introduced. This allows us to report
metrics such as CPU usage in "seconds per second" without losing precision.
* Metrics in the CPU and Disk plugins have been changed to report "seconds
per second", in accordance with the OpenTelemetry semantic conventions.
* The Swap plugin has been migrated.
* The Write Redis plugin has been migrated. It has been changed to use the
*RedisTimeSeries* extension instead of the previously used "sorted sets".


Release Notes
RC2: https://github.com/collectd/collectd/releases/tag/collectd-6.0.0.rc2
RC1: https://github.com/collectd/collectd/releases/tag/collectd-6.0.0.rc1

Best regards,
