August brought us the Icinga Web 2 Map module, tipps and tricks for Icinga and more integrations. The schedule for OSMC 2017 was announced, where developers and community members will meet and also give talks this time. Icinga Camp Berlin happens on March 8th, 2018 – CfP and early bird is open!
We’ve reached more than 1000 GitHub stars for our projects – thank you!
In case you have troubles with the mail notifications scripts in the latest Icinga 2 v2.7 update, please checkout this advisory.
Users also reported problems with certificates on OpenSSL 1.1.0. The latter is used on Debian Stretch and the Windows packages. The certificates should have been created in 2015. Checkout this advisory to see if you are affected and how to fix the certificates.
In case you are having trouble with Icinga Web 2 v2.4.1 and Icinga 2 v2.7.0, API command transport and acknowledgements, look into this fix.
Francesco contributed installation docs for Icinga 2 on Alpine Linux. This should ease your way into small Docker deployments.
We are proud to welcome Simon Murray on team Icinga :-) His magnificent work on the InfluxDB feature in Icinga 2, including hotfixes for the recent v2.7, continues on the official core team :-)
The date for Icinga Camp Berlin 2018 is here: Join us on March 8th, 2018 for a full day of #icingalove :)
Proud to announce our next Icinga Camp in Berlin on March 8th, 2018. CfP is open and early bird tickets for sale – https://t.co/lwoiMB9o81
