Release, Release, Release

Good news for those who prefer to always run stable versions in production. No more need to feel uncomfortable with running the latest master or a support branch in production. We decided to tag patch releases for many of our Icinga Web 2 modules more frequently.

Allow me to announce that today we released Director v1.4.1, Fileshipper v1.0.1, Cube v1.0.1, AWS 0.6.0 and PuppetDB v1.0.0. In future there will not be a big announcement for all patch releases all the times. So please follow our projects on GitHub in case you want to make sure to always run the latest and greatest stable release.

Vagrant box updates: Elastic Stack, InfluxDB & Icinga Web 2 modules

A while back we’ve written about changes inside our Vagrant box demo environments – and many things happened ever since.

There are a couple of new Icinga Web 2 modules directly integrated into the Vagrant boxes (Director, Grafana, Cube, Globe). In terms of metrics and event collecting we’ve integrated Elastic Stack with Icingabeat and also InfluxDB with Grafana. We are happy to release v1.3.0 today.

Monthly Snap March: Icinga Camp, Partners, Trainings, Icingabeat, approved Puppet module

March was all about our lovely community. We’ve had Icinga Camp Berlin and San Francisco, and also joined FLOSSUK. You’ll also recognize that our Puppet module for Icinga 2 was officially approved by Puppet. Blerim released icingabeat and blogged about it at the Elastic blog. And many more things happened …

We’ve also thought about 1st of April, but hey – we have so many great things to share and work on, we’ll skip it for 2017 ;-)

Icinga Director featured in iX magazine 04/17

Marianne Spiller, our fellow community member @sys_adm_ama, told us last week during Icinga Camp Berlin that she was about to publish an article about the Icinga Director. Today the iX magazine 04/17 was published and page 62 features Marianne’s article.

I’ve got myself the ebook already. Templates, change history, import sources, more modules just like PuppetDB or AWS – everything you know and love about the Director gets covered. Pretty awesome overview of the Icinga Director in “only” 3 pages. Keep in mind that the article is in German, so you might need some extra translation ;-)

Congratulations Marianne & thanks for writing such a nice article. We’re hoping for more! :-)
