Calendar of Events

Virtual Dev-Jam 2020 -- RIGHT NOW

This year we will, for obvious reasons, not be doing our normal yearly Dev-Jam hackathon.
With that in mind, we're going to try doing something completely different: Virtual Dev-Jam.

We are running a Minecraft server, with support for positional sound using Mumble, which means you can be there and hear audio only from the folks near you.

Also you can join the "Dev Jam" channel in the OpenNMS chat server.

We also plan on doing a movie screening, gaming, and other fun stuff.

For details, check out VIRTUAL DEVJAM.

Upcoming Releases - August 4th, 2020

The next OpenNMS release day is August 4th, 2020.
Currently we expect new bugfix releases from Meridian 2019 and Horizon 26.

Also coming up soon is Horizon 27, hopefully by early fall.
It's going to contain a bunch of great stuff:

  • improvements to node caching for flow processing
  • VMware metadata has been moved from assets to the new node metadata
  • Minion improvements, including configuration enhancements and an overhaul to RPC thread-handling
  • a new handy global search bar in the web UI
  • a major rework of remote poller functionality, now integrated with the Minion (we're calling it Application Perspective Monitoring)
  • BMP improvements

Until Next Week…

If there’s anything you’d like me to talk about in a future OOH, or you just have a comment or criticism you’d like to share, don’t hesitate to say hi.
