Release Roadmap

November Releases

The next OpenNMS release day is November 3rd, 2020.

The current plan is to release Horizon 27 as well as Meridians 2019 and 2020.

Next Horizon: 27 (Q4 2020)

The next major Horizon release will be Horizon 27.
It's going to contain a bunch of great stuff:

  • improvements to node caching for flow processing
  • VMware meta-data has been moved from assets to the new node meta-data
  • Minion improvements, including configuration enhancements and an overhaul to RPC thread-handling
  • a new handy global search bar in the web UI
  • improved SNMPv3 auth configuration
  • a major rework of remote poller functionality, now integrated with the Minion (we're calling it Application Perspective Monitoring)

Next Meridian: 2021 (Q2 2021)

With the recent release of Meridian 2020, plans are still tentative.
However, the current expectation is that Meridian 2021 will be based on Horizon 28, which is expected to build on Horizon 27 with additional flow and metadata improvements.

We'll know more once development plans start to firm up.
