Icinga Web 2 v2.2.0 released

by | Mar 1, 2016

Today we release Icinga Web 2 Version 2.2.0. This version fixes a couple of security issues and makes the web interface even more accessible for people with impairments. We kept an eye on keyboard navigation, visual elements and screen reader compatibility to remove many barriers as possible. For example, the screenshot shows a high-contrast theme. Security improvements for external links and content provided by plugins or user input. Under the hood we fixed plenty of bugs to keep you smiling when using your favourite web interface.
We are proud to bring you a new version that increases user experience for everyone and security in your productive environments. Checkout version 2.2.0 on GitHub or use packages for your favourite platform.
