Version 2.0 Released

Holger Weiß, July 11, 2014

The Monitoring Plugins Development Team is proud to announce the first release under the new project name: Version 2.0 of the Monitoring Plugins! This release comes with various enhancements and fixes provided by more than twenty contributors. Many thanks to all of you!

Let me also take the chance to welcome our newest team member, Sam Kottler. He already did lots of patch review for this release, and his expertise will no doubt help us a lot in the future, so we're really happy to have him on board!

One of the significant changes in the new release is that the Extra-Opts feature is now enabled by default. This lets you use a configuration file to specify plugin options. See the documentation for details.

For the list of other major changes in this release, see below. Note that a few of them might break certain configurations (hence the major version bump). Those are mentioned at the bottom of that list, so please be sure to check whether they might affect you.
