Good news everyone! Or at least for all users of Raspberry Pi and the Raspbian operating system!
We now provide official packages for Raspbian on ARM chips. You can find those packages on packages.icinga.com.
You only need to add the repository and signing key, and you can start installing Icinga. Either as a agent for your existing Icinga system, or as a standalone monitoring system.
curl https://packages.icinga.com/icinga.key | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb http://packages.icinga.com/raspbian icinga-stretch main" \
| sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/icinga.list
sudo apt update
sudo apt install icinga2 icingaweb2
Many thanks to our users ENDA and Nicolai from the community, for helping us getting started with official packages. They are already using Raspbian and Icinga in an industrial scale, to monitor remote locations all over Europe.
Feel free to check them out and give us feedback or ask questions on community.icinga.com and open issues on GitHub.
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.
We just released another minor bugfix release for Icinga 2. In addition to providing a number of documentation enhancements version 2.7.2 addresses a few bugs. A list of changes can be found here.

We spent the last weeks and months improving our build system, so we can ship packages better and faster.

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.
