(thruk uses this for mass operations) * Fix:the livestatus, so that host_name and service_description are shown correctly for downtiems and comments. * Fix: (reported by: Raynald de Lahondès) for python2.7, if shell launch, do not go in shlex split pass. * Fix: catch an exception when deregistering Pyro. (When the scheduler was started as the only process and no communication happened * Fix: Add the path of the current script (ex: bin/shinken-arbiter) and ".." to the list of paths where Python looks for shinken modules. * Fix: default config had duplicate command name define: check_http * Fix: clean Command(s) now subclass Item(s) as any "shinken.objects" * Fix: (reported by: Raynald de Lahondès) if a hostgroup member got no host defined, create a dummy service for no host, so failed. * Fix: bad UTC hour for scheduler. * Fix: in a rare case, the picle need to call the init of notification before the get_state, but it will call it without args. * Fix: (reported by: Raynald de Lahondès) bad hostdep definition (link host) was badly detected. * Fix: utf8 management in the db class. * Fix: the * member was wrong in service calling hostgroup of this kind. * Fix: the schedule immediate check now work without having to force it. * Fix: correct the check launch under python2.7 with utf8 char. * Fix: (reported by: Denis GERMAIN) set by default retention update inverval to 60 minutes. * Fix: bad sys.path management for ndo module * Fix: too much loop in daemons! do_loop_tunr must WAIT a little! To managed in the main_loop part I think. * Fix: if the scheduler gotthe same conf but got a wait a new one before, it do a zombie scheduler then.... * Fix: (reported by: Hienz Michael) do not close local file in the daemon pass. * Fix: (Raynald de Lahondès) for bsd systems. * Fix: service without host will be just droped, like Nagios. * Fix: Nagios allow elements without contacts. Do alike. * Fix: add protection against adding again and again the same actions ifthe scheduler ask it, like for orphaned checks. * Fix: sys.path management, not far more clear and error proof * Fix: (reported by: capibaru) add a strip pass before loading cfg files. * Fix: raise only one log for orphaned instead of xK useless logs. * Fix: (Venelin Petkov) missing customs on services copy of a based one (multiple hosts, hostgroups, etc) * Fix: (reported by: Ronny Lindner) manage the not host expressions for services.

    September 06, 2010

    ✨ ENHANCEMENTS *New code layout *Installation is easy with the process (first version from Maximilien Bersoult) *Now compatible with Pyro 3 AND 4 *Now compatible with Python 2.4 and 2.5 too *Add sticky acknowledgement. Non-permanent ack-comments are now automatically removed *Add host acknowledgement and acknowledgement stickiness *Finished service problem acknowledgement. one more testcase *Add REMOVE_HOST/SVC_ACKNOWLEDGEMENT external command *Now broker get broks from pollers and reactionners. (Useful for Logs) *Give Broker a way to make broks :) (like for it's own log) *Add a problem/incident change states when apply. But it do not interfer with the standard check way of doing (or at least should not). *Add some LSB init.d scripts *Add max_plugins_output_length parameter to limit the checks output size. *"Hack" the old nagios parameters: now status_file and nagios_log are catched. If the user defined them, but do not defined the good broker modules, we create them "on the fly". I hope one day we will remove it... *Nested macros are managed (like USERN in ARGN macro). *Add a pass about changing Nagios2 properties to Nagios3 ones. *Add json outputformat to the livestatus module *Add a broker module npcdmod (plus test_npcdmod) which writes a perfdata file suitable for pnp4nagios *Add check_period implicitly inheritate to service from host. *Redesign of the notifications (far easier to understand than the old async way) *Notice about unused parameters and explain why it can be removed from conf. *Catch non standard return code in so we can add stderr to the output for such cases. *Now arbiter host_name property is not mandatory.

It's far more easy and efficient. *Add template handling to servicedependencies *Add test_dependencies as the regression test *Less status_dat verbosity :) *Add a last_perf_data + macros to access last perfdatas as in *HUGE clean on shinken-specific.cfg file. *Add a README file *Add a little note about how migrate from Nagios to Shinken *Add a hint about how solve 'cannot find my own arbiter' error message. *Add bin directory with some bash scripts to launch/stop the whole application. *Relative path, now we can have a easy portable sample configuration. (Gerhard) *Add two missing operators in *Big clean up conf sample! *No more modulespath need in brokerd.ini. Will be easier for packagers. *Acknowledgement test cases *Add some hard tests about timeperiods calculations *Add a script for Hudson test (launch all tests) *Add a problem/impact test. *Now external modules can return objects (from now nobody use it, but it can be useful in the future) *Make easier to raise checks/notificatiosn from in deep objects class. *repository cosmetics (Luke L)

(nicolas.dupeux) *Fix a bug in ACKNOWLEDGE_SVC_PROBLEM ext. command. Sticky can be 0/1/2, not bool *Bug fix in find_day_by_weekday_offset. *Bug Fix: when a date was calcl before teh ref time for a weekday it was not recalculated, so problem. *Bug Fix: error in get_end_of_day. It was given the first secon of the next day, so some exclude make problem with it. *Bug Fix: shell like commands where not good :(.

Thanks Pylint. *Bug fix: host in unreach were set DOWN un state, but unreach in state_id. Now it say clearly it's UNREACHABLE. *Bug: retention was loading services objects from retention file. It's not good at all. *Fix a and -> or bug in the dependancies *Fix a bug in livestatus. state_type is now a number instead of HARD/SOFT *Fix a bug in the livestatus module. Eventhandler command is now serializable *Fix a bug in execute_unix.
