Icinga 1.3.0 released!

by | Feb 16, 2011

We are proud to announce the new Icinga version 1.3. The new version includes nearly 200 solved bugs and issues and marks another outstanding milestone in Icinga’s release history. One major change is the introduction into dualstack host monitoring with IPv6 support – check the wiki for a startup guide.
Again we want to thank the growing Icinga community and contributors for helping us make 1.3 the best version ever.
