We have a new release of GrimoireLab .
This new release includes two minor releases (Perceval  and
SortingHat ) with interesting new features (some of those were
already in previous GrimoireLab releases, anyway).
For SortingHat, beware that the database schema generated by SortingHat
< 0.7.0 is still compatible, but older versions can have problems
inserting UTF-8 characters of 4 bytes. So, regenerating the SortingHat
databases is recommended. In addition, Python 2.7 is no longer
supported in this new release of SortingHat.
For SirMordred, there is a new mandatory field, in section [panels]:
kibiter_url = http://localhost:5601
(or wherever SirMordred is listening).
Remember that now we also have a new grimoirelab package, that pulls
all the Python packages for the release. So, installation is easier,
and traceability too: for knowing the GrimoireLab release, just run
$ grimoirelab -v
The tag you get (0.1.4 in this case) corresponds to a certain release
file (18.10-01 in this case), and specific commits and Python package
The corresponding packages have been uploaded to pypi (so they're
installable with pip). I've tested most of the examples in the
GrimoireLab Tutorial  with this new release, and everything seems to
work. Please, report any problem you may find.
As usual, this release of pypi packages was generated with docker
containers, to ensure platform independence. You can install all the
packages just with:
$ pip install grimoirelab
We have also produced four Docker images available in DockerHub, all of
them with the tags ":18.10-01" and ":latest". You can pull and run them
* grimoirelab/factory: for creating the Python packages
* grimoirelab/installed: with GrimoireLab installed
* grimoirelab/full: grimoirelab/installed plus services needed to
produce a dashboard, by default produces a dashboard of the CHAOSS
* grimoirelab/secured: grimoirelab/full plus access control and SSL for
access to Kibiter
If you want to use or help to debug the new containers, have a look at
The list of new stuff is in the NEWS file  (check all changes since
18.09-02, which was the latest release with packages in pypi).
