As Icinga’s second year is rolling to a close and amidst the festive cheer we’ve had a chance to relive a few proud memories.

2010 marked our first unified, stable release- Icinga 1.2 and the entrance of the stable, new web interface in all its Agavi-based glory. Icinga Mobile also made its debut alongside integrated addons PNP, LConf, Heatmap, Jasper Reports Business Process Addon and Icinga’s virtual appliance.

All this was achieved on the base of solid development in Icinga Core with improvements to check timeout states and escalation conditions, as well as significant performance optimization of IDOUtils. Not to mention the continuous expansion of Icinga Docs which have added sections on REST API and external commands, plus PDF conversion to name a few.

Such progress is thanks to the team which too was fortified with 11 new members; but also the great community that has grown around us. Contributions came from everywhere this year, with Icinga packaged for Debian and the new Web translated into >20 languages. Aside from Pootle and Feedback channels both coming online and into full swing, we also saw our first YouTube videos and a new look icinga.org homepage.

We thank you all for all your support on the mailing lists, Facebook, Twitter and at events such as this year’s OSMC, FrOSCon, Nagios Workshop, CeBIT and the Open Expo in Switzerland. 2010 was an amazing year that saw Icinga hit 38,000+ downloads, which could never have been possible without all our Icinga friends!
