Download Icinga 1.9 Beta now, for a chance to preview our newest features and check on some of the bugs you’ve reported:

Icinga Core, IDOUtils & Classic UI: As mentioned, we’ve added a socket queue (#3533) and transactions buffer for large object dumps (#3527) that are great to test in large environments. There are many bug fixes contributed by community members (#2619 #2688 #3736 thanks!) as well as smaller performance improvements on the core, as well as the Classic UI on parsing the current config and status data (#3722).

Furthermore we’ve added new acknowledgement expiry (#3476) and notification (#3467) default settings, fixed and improved JSON functions as well as made the Classic UI a standalone component (#3869) especially for Icinga 2 development tests.

Check the full Core change log for more details.

Icinga Web:  Now is the chance to test the new cronk menu you voted for (#3396 #3430), as well as the new sought-after drag-n-drop style filter (#3268). These are complimented by usability improvements in the interface (#3511), from scrolling and tabs to links and authorisations. In addition, we’ve fixed the upgrade path for custom cronks for v1.7 users (#3431 #3981). There’s a known bug with overlapping credentials (#4002). Check the full Web change log for more details.

These come with a couple of fixes in Icinga Reporting and plenty of new guide enhancements in Icinga Docs.
