I’m a big fan of Prometheus. I use it quite a lot at both home and work, and greatly enjoy having insight into what my systems are doing at any given moment. One of the most widely used Prometheus exporters is the node_exporter: a daemon that can extract a wide variety of metrics from UNIX-like machines.
As I was browsing the repository, I noticed an open issue requesting the addition of WiFi metrics to node_exporter. The idea intrigued me, and I realized that I would certainly make use of such a feature on my Linux laptop. I began exploring options for retrieving WiFi device information on Linux.
This is the official release of Wayland 1.13. There have been no changes since beta and RC1.
In addition to a range of bug fixes, changes since wayland 1.12 have added some API for controlling the visibility of globals and numerous documentation and other improvements.
