Version 1.5 Released

Holger Weiß, October 2, 2013

The Nagios Plugins Development Team is proud to announce version 1.5 of the Nagios Plugins! This release comes with the new check_dbi plugin written by Sebastian Harl, and includes lots of enhancements and fixes provided by more than forty contributors. Many thanks to all of you!

Special kudos go to Sven Nierlein for fixing numerous bugs, reviewing many pull requests, bringing our test suite back into shape, and setting up automated tests on a variety of platforms. This helped us spotting lots of bugs before the release. Let me also thank Ton Voon for doing the unenviable work of updating the bundled Perl modules; and our newest team member Jan Wagner for all his help with patch review.

See below for a list of major changes. Note that the new check_http version introduces two minor backwards incompatibilities mentioned at the end of that list, so please be sure to check whether they might affect you.

You can get the tarball from our download page.
