Today we released the version 1.0.8 of naemon-core and naemon-livestatus. Thanks to all people who were involved in this release. This release addresses some issues during package updates. If you still have problems, try to remove the obsolute naemon-tools package first. Naemon tools have been merged into the naemon-core package.
A few few weeks ago two CVEs have been announced for the Nagios core and Nagios webinterface. Since Naemon inherits some code of Nagios, people might wonder if Naemon is also affected by those issues.
This is an issue with the Nagios webinterface which never made it into the Naemon codebase since we use Thruk as default web interface. So this issue simply doesn’t exist in Naemon.
This issue uses the fact that systemV init scripts start the Nagios process as root and then the process itself drops privileges and continues as normal user. Naemon inherited that issue so you might be affected.
However, you are not affected by this issue if you run Naemon either in OMD-Labs or on any Systemd based system like the OP5 Monitor.
We are working on a fix right now and there will be a new release soon.
Today we released the version 1.0.5 of naemon-core and naemon-livestatus. Thanks to all people who were involved in this release. This release fixes two critical bugs introduced in the last release which makes naemon stop on logrotation.
Today we released our first bug fix release after the 1.0 in February.
There is one bug fixed which made the debian packages from the 1.0 look
like 0.9 packages. The other bugs are related to the
Summer vacation is over and we are making good progress on the way to a stable 1.0 release which is planned for the next weeks. A change to make timeperiods more sane and some final testing are hopefully done till the weekend.
Till the final release, you can test the daily releases which are almost exactly like the stable release, the only different part is the version string.
Also last news call to help reviewing a few last documentation pages is still valid.
One last note, Andreas will talk about Naemon on the OSMC in Nuremberg this year.
Since we started the documentation project, we made great progress. Mostly due to the help of Johan. Thanks.
The initial import of the original documentation pages has been finished, but there are still pages left to be reviewed. This can be done by anyone who wants to help making our documentation awesome. Just follow the steps as described here.
All pages left over for review got a review_required tag at the top of the page so they can easily be found. A simple grep would also work:
%> grep -r review_required documentation/usersguide/
The doxygen documentation has already been ported into the website and is now part of the normal developer documentation.
We now even have Travis CI tests for our website.
Next steps are:
