The developers behind Nagios fork, Icinga, have released version 1.5 of the open source monitoring package. Icinga 1.5 has a new user interface which includes a pre-installed integrated reporting tool, a guide to which can be found on the Icinga wiki. It is based on Jasper Reports and includes 20 frequently used templates, such as a list of available services and the top 10 problematic hosts or services.

To simplify development of add-ons and plugins, the developers have replaced the Icinga API with an internal database layer. A legacy layer ensures that plugins developed for older versions of Icinga will still work. Version 1.5 also sees a change in the release policy: one week prior to the release of a new version, the developers will release a beta containing all functions included in the final release for testing.

More details about the release, including a list of changes, can be found in a post on the Icinga blog. Icinga 1.5 is available to download from SourceForge and is licensed under the GPL.
