Since our last issue, we have had two releases: 6.5.4 and 6.5.5.
Thanks to Hacktoberfest 2022, we dedicated version 6.5.4 to our contributors, who have added several new SQL numeric and string functions to QuestDB.
In version 6.5.5, we added support for ISO week and improved the migration experience when importing CSV files exported from PostgreSQL or similar databases.

#Tutorial: Data lifecycle with QuestDB
For most time-series data applications, the value of each data point diminishes over time. Our contributor, Yitaek Hwang, explains how you can downsample data and detach or drop partitions when old data is no longer necessary in QuestDB.
