This Week in OpenNMS: Irregular Regular Releases
by Benjamin Reed: April 13, 2010
It’s time for This Week in OpenNMS. This week we got a number of features merged into the 1.7 branch, and prepped for new 1.6 and 1.7 releases. Of course, since this is the first time we’ve done releases under our new bi-monthly release schedule, I ran into some snags and so this TWiO is getting out a bit late today. By the time you read this, 1.6.7 and 1.7.7 should be wrapping up.
- Stable: Current Release is 1.6.7
1.6.7 is the current stable release, tagged October 5th. It adds a few small features. For a full list, see the bugzilla 1.6.7 milestone. This is a non-critical but recommended upgrade for anyone on OpenNMS versions older than 1.6.7.
- Unstable: Current Release is 1.7.7
1.7.7 is the current unstable release, tagged October 5th. Since 1.7.6, there have been a ton of bugfixes, as well as a number of new features, including the DNS provisioning adapter, mobile sequence monitor, and the map adapter. A 1.7.x overview is available in the release notes on the site.
- Unstable: SMS Pinger/Request-Response API
The SMS ping and mobile sequence monitor code got a few minor fixes and made it through testing. It was merged and became a part of OpenNMS 1.7.7.
- Unstable: Map Link Enhancements
We hit the first milestone for the map link enhancements. There are 2 new additions to the provisioner: the map adapter, and the link adapter. Together, these allow automatic creation of maps and links when nodes are provisioned.
- Stable: SnmpPlugin Table Support
Jeff merged a long-standing bug which allows Capsd to scan values in an SNMP table.
As part of our transition to scrum-ban here in the OpenNMS Group offices, we’ve decided to move to a bi-monthly release schedule. Our first releases under the new schedule are 1.6.7 and 1.7.7. Do not be alarmed that there are only a few changes in 1.6.7, it’s only because we’ve just recently released 1.6.6, and not much has changed in the stable branch.
- Oct 28, 2009: Tarus Balog will be speaking at the Open Source Monitoring Conference 2009 in Nürnberg, Germany.
If you have anything to add to the events list, please let me know.
Until Next Week…
As always, if there’s anything you’d like me to talk about in a future TWiO, or you just have a comment, criticism, or pre-built release binaries you’d like to share, don’t hesitiate to say hi.
