Auto resolution for align and timechart

You may omit a resolution argument (of type duration) and Observe will determine a suitable value based on the current query time window or chart resolution. If the auto value does not meet your needs, you may specify one, period for align or bin_duration for timechart:

// Use automatic duration
align frame(back: 5m), requests: rate(m("requests_total"))
timechart Count:count(1), group_by(server_name)

// Use explicit duration
align 1m, frame(back: 5m), requests: rate(m("requests_total"))
timechart 1h, Count:count(1), group_by(server_name)

Create a regex from a string literal

The [regex()](../../../../query-language-reference/function/regex.md) function coerces a string into a value of type regex. This is useful to programmatically create a regular expression from a string literal. The string may not contain computed values, such as a field name.

filter match_regex(log, regex($errorExpr))
