Stromboli volcano eruptions:
Persistant (near-constant) activity since at least 2-3000 years. Most recent effusive (lava flow) eruptions from Dec. 2002-July 2003, March 2007, Aug-Oct 2014.
Typical eruption style:
Small explosive (strombolian) eruptions, typically every 20-30 mins. Intermittently, ca. every 2-20 years, minor effusive eruptions (lava flows); on average 2-5 times per year larger explosions.

Eruption updates & news from Stromboli:

Stromboli (Aeolian Islands, Italy): new small lava flow from the summit crater

The activity at Stromboli has lately increased, as our colleague Marc Szlegat observed over the holidays. Since 23 December small lava overflows occurred from the eastern crater area and produced lava flows with varying length on the upper part of the Sciara del Fuoco.
Yesterday afternoon and evening, it looked as if the lava flow had increased and extended on a good portion of the Sciara where lava blocks detaching from the flow rolling down created a dense incandescent stream.
It is still unclear whether the flows come from a new vent at the eastern crater terrace or whether they are overflows of lava from an existing vent.
The seismicity is increased and in addition to the tremor, explosion and rockfall signals are elevated as well.
Such lava (over-)flows from the crater are usually relatively short-lived, but come often in phases.
