Is there a schedule when Orbit on the stable channel will update osquery to version 5.5.1 or am I misunderstanding how this works?

Hi @marnin! We don't have a specific schedule for bringing new osquery versions to the stable channel.
5:43 PM
There's a lot of testing that happens and tweaks may be necessary, so it's difficult to judge ahead of time how long it might take.
5:43 PM
Is there a reason you're keen to get up and running with 5.5.1?

That's a cool one! If it's something you'd like to play with while you wait, you could deploy 5.5.1 to some hosts with vanilla osquery 😃

Yes, that’s probably what I’ll do

We currently have 5.5.1 available on the
edge
channel. You'll get it if you build packages with
--osqueryd-channel=edge
or
--osqueryd-channel=5.5.1
(which would also disable updates because you would be pinning the package to 5.5.1. We will push it to the
stable
channel when osquery project declares it stable.

Good info, thanks for following up. Is pushing to the stable channel when the release is declared stable the general workflow?

Yes it is

We try to push to
edge
ASAP after the release is tagged and then to
stable
ASAP after the release is declared stable.

This info would make a good addition to the Orbit readme.
