**Netdata Release: New Integrations Marketplace and SystemD Journal Function**
In this latest Netdata release, we are excited to introduce some great new features and enhancements. Our user base continues to grow, with over 64.5k GitHub stars and an impressive 580+ million Docker Hub pulls. We are grateful for all the support and love from the community!
To make your monitoring experience even better, we have included a beta version of the Netdata Marketplace in this release. With more than 800 integrations available, directly from the dashboard, you can easily enhance your monitoring capabilities. Each integration includes all the necessary information to get it up and running smoothly. While the Marketplace is still in beta, we are constantly improving it based on user feedback.
**SystemD Journal Function**
We have added a new Netdata function that allows you to query the systemd journal logs. This function is fully integrated with the current date-time picker, giving you the flexibility to query any timeframe of data stored in the systemd journal. It’s important to note that Netdata functions are only available when you are signed in to Netdata and your Netdata Agent is claimed. This measure has been implemented to protect your privacy and ensure that only authorized users can access this information.
**Claiming via the UI**
To streamline the process of connecting your agents to Netdata Cloud, we have introduced a new feature in the dashboard. Now, you can easily claim your Netdata agents by providing a random key that is saved to a file on disk. Once you enter the correct key, Netdata will be automatically claimed to your space on Netdata Cloud.
**Easily Spot Anomalies**
Our updated user interface includes an AR (anomaly rate) button above the menu. When you click on the button, the dashboard utilizes the Netdata Metrics Scoring Engine to analyze the current view and identify anomaly rates across different metrics. This information is then displayed as badges next to each category and subcategory, allowing you to quickly identify any anomalies.
We would like to express our gratitude to all the dedicated and talented contributors who have made significant contributions to our community. Your valuable time and expertise have been vital to our success, and we are excited to continue growing together.
