Bugfix releases: Icinga 2 v2.8.1 and Icinga Web 2 v2.5.1

We are happy to announce new bugfix releases for Icinga 2 and Icinga Web 2.

Official packages are available on packages.icinga.com. Community repositories might need a while to catch up.

 

Icinga 2 v2.8.1

This release fixes a bug where Icinga 2 could crash after an API object was created at runtime. It also fixes the Windows installer problem with missing DLLs. This was also the reason for missing Chocolatey packages, v2.8.1 is available again. Community members started to build packages for Solaris/OpenIndiana, this release helps with minor fixes.

In mixed update scenarios with the master being 2.8 but clients with 2.7, the cluster log message were too verbose with the removed “UpdateRepository” functionality. v2.8.0 also added a default for the “ssl_sni” attribute which broke some checks. This regression has been fixed. In addition to that, there are fixes for the plugins and documentation all over the place.

More details in the Changelog.

 

Icinga Web 2 v2.5.1

This release provides a sponsored feature request for a detail view inside the event history view. We’ve also split out the check source and reachable rows inside the host/service detail view to make to more clear. Furthermore, this version censors sensitive information (e.g. LDAP passwords) in exception stack traces.

In case you’re having trouble with configuration parsing errors, the error handling has now been fixed. Please do note that ‘#’ as comments don’t work in INI configuration files. In addition to that, a fix for restrictions for the service detail view has been applied.

OSMC 2017 Recap

This was our 8th year at OSMC 2017. Before you dive into the archive full of videos, slides and pictures, I’d like to do a short recap on the many things to explore and learn.

The first day usually starts with workshops. This time Lennart provided a deep dive into Icinga 2 in distributed environments, based on a rewritten chapter for the Icinga book v2.0. Rumors do tell that everyone was super excited and is already refining their production setups.

The talks started on Wednesday with news on the schedule – three tracks to decide from. Many decisions on very good talks, if you have missed some, go straight for the archive. Below is just a summary, there are many more talks to watch :)
