It is time for NagVis 1.7.7. This release includes a small set of feature changes. mainly related to the automap.
We implemented "on demand" maps. Maps which only need a basic configuration of basic parameters like automaps and geomaps can now be configured and created on demand by URL parameters. This mode is reached by simply calling the map URL without "show=" parameter and a bunch of parameters for the global section of the map instead.
This release changed the default behaviour of the automap concerning the root host. By default NagVis uses a virtual root node which represents the monitoring core. It adds the parent tree and all nodes which have no parents defined below this node. If no parents are configured, all hosts are rendered below this virtual root node.
For a detailed view on the changes in NagVis 1.7.7 have a look at the changelog (http://www.nagvis.org/downloads/changelog/1.7.7).
