This dropped earlier this month, but all of the breaking news about Red Hat kept me locked up in breaking news land and I couldn’t post until now. My apologies.
Here’s what’s new in OpenNMS 1.3.8. OpenNMS is the world’s first enterprise grade network management platform developed under the open source model. It consists of a community supported open-source project as well as a commercial services, training, and support organization.
The big news is that OpenNMS now runs on Windows. The OpenNMS wiki warns that this is initial Windows support, and “there are a lot of rough edges, but it is possible to install and run on Windows 2000 and up.”
Both Linkd and Syslogd have also been significantly improved and the “split-personality issues with configuration differences between running the embedded Jetty web UI and running in Tomcat have been improved.” The Jetty server is also more configurable, with support for being proxied. Rudimentary RSS feed support has been added to the Web UI.
And as always, the openNMS community would like you to know that a number of bugs, big and small, have been fixed.
