6.0 is coming
To help our awesome community prepare we will be doing a run through of the major changes that will land with the Elastic Stack in 6.0.
We have things like rolling-major version upgrades, even more Lucene data structure optimizations, sequence IDs, saying farewell to _types, dashboard modes, automated cluster alerts, Logstash pipelines and a pipeline viewer, Beats integration with kubernetes and a whole raft of new Beats modules.
Our Pioneer Program also makes a return, so if you are already using the beta releases of the stack and are submitting issues, you're a winner!
