We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Chef Analytics 1.1.5. This is a bugfix release for 1.1.4, which prevented some customers from cleanly upgrading from previous versions of Analytics.
This version also includes a scheduled task (cron job) that will purge Analytics data older than three months by default on an ongoing basis. You may customize the behavior by using the data_retention['month_interval_to_keep_activities'] and data_retention['keep_all_data'] parameters; see the documentation for more detail.
In Q3, we will be working on features that will allow customers the ability to better manage the growth of their Analytics data in a more elegant fashion.
Analytics 1.1.5 will be the last shipping version that supports Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. This version of Ubuntu became end-of-life on April 30, 2015.
As always, you can download new releases of Analytics from downloads.chef.io.
