Releases and Roadmap
Upcoming May Releases
OpenNMS is on a monthly release schedule, with releases happening on the second Wednesday of the month.
The next OpenNMS release day is May 11th, 2022.
We currently expect the first release of Horizon 30, plus Meridians 2019 through 2022.
Next Horizon: 30 (Q2 2022)
The next major Horizon release will be Horizon 30.
Horizon 30 is currently expected to have the following features:
initial work moving configuration from XML files to the database -- the first config file implemented on top of the new system will be provisiond-configuration.xml
support for running OIA plugins on Minion and Sentinel
support for backing up router configuration files
Next Meridian: 2023 (Q1 2023)
Meridian 2023 is early in its development cycle, but you can expect it to contain, at the very least, the work that's going into Horizon 30.
Note that this is just based on current plans; dates, features, and releases can change or slip depending on how development goes.
