Monthly Snap May: Events, Integrations & Community Updates

by | Jun 1, 2017

This time we’re focusing on many cool integrations, past and upcoming events and even more with and around Icinga.
We’ve celebrated eight years Icinga in May – hooray!
Currently we are working on Icinga 2 v2.7 to be released in June. This will include certain enhancements for performance and metrics. I’m writing a blog post soon. We are also pushing resources into Icinga Exchange and our new backend. Many things cooking under the hood, and soon to be shared with insights.
One of them is new build infrastructure which has been released this week. Built with Jenkins and Puppet and developed in the open. All involved scripts, modules and a Vagrant test environment can be found on GitHub. You’ll also recognise a new theme on 🙂



Denny provided us with lots of Ritter Sport chocolate – what a nice surprise Monday morning 🙂

We are always trying to enhance the experience when working with Icinga and bugs, enhancements and more. This time we’ve added a contribution guide and issue template for Icinga Web 2. Once we feel that this works out, we’ll push that to our many Github projects in the future 🙂
