Desde ayer por la tarde ya tenemos disponibles en la web de Nagios-Plugins la versión 2.0 de este paquete de plugins.

Os dejamos el post donde se anunció su lanzamiento:

Echando un primer vistazo vemos que no hay demasiadas diferencias, solo han añadido un nuevo plugin, y en el resto han añadido alguna funcionalidad y arreglado algunos bugs. A nuestro entender la evolución de 1.6 a 2.0 es la misma que existió de la 1.5 a la 1.6, aunque imaginamos que por el hecho de gestionar ahora la nueva comunidad desde Nagios Enterprise han querido dar un lavado de imagen.

En cualquier caso es interesante ver movimiento.

Con la salida de NDOUtils el pasado viernes una buena noticia.

Os dejamos la “release history” de la 2.0 a continuación :
