Icinga 2.8.3 released

Today we are releasing a new support version of Icinga 2.8, a small one to pass the time until 2.9. This release includes fixes for the InfluxDB and Elasticsearch features. Please note that Elasticsearch 6 support is coming with 2.9. In addition to the fixes we’ve added support for multiple check parameters for the check_nscp_api plugin and working sysconfig/defaults variables support, you’ll also find many documentation updates. For this release you don’t need to follow any special upgrade procedure, upgrading is safe.

Additional changes and details can be found in the changelog.

As always official packages are available on packages.icinga.com while community repositories might need a bit to catch up.

Update 2018-04-25 16:45 CEST: Users reported problems from a regression. We have therefore released v2.8.4.

Icinga 2.6.2 Release

We’re happy to announce another minor release for Icinga 2. This release only addresses a single bug which can cause Icinga to crash when it’s trying to remove configuration files for objects which were deleted (such as comments and downtimes for hosts and services which don’t exist anymore).

Packages for Icinga 2.6.2 for the officially supported distributions should be available shortly.

Icinga 2.6.1 Release

We have just released another minor update for Icinga 2. Version 2.6.1 addresses a number of issues we identified in 2.6.0 and is also at the same time the first release after our recent migration to GitHub.

Two of the fixes in this version are for crash bugs which affect reloading Icinga and passing unusually large amounts of command arguments or environment variables to child processes. There are also some documentation changes and a few other smaller bug fixes. Unlike with previous minor releases we decided not to include any ITL changes this time.

An exhaustive list of all tickets solved in 2.6.1 can be found on GitHub. Packages for 2.6.1 should become available shortly.

There’s also a recently-released new version of Icinga Web 2 (2.4.1) which introduces fixes for a few minor problems our users have reported.
