  • Authorization module, based on contact assignments in monitoring core
  • Merge states of equal named objects from different backends
  • New object type: Dynamic Group (Groups objects by livestatus filter statement)
  • New map source: Dynamic Maps (Adds objects based on livestatus filter statement, sorts objects in a grid)
  • Slightly improved automap rendering algorithm
  • Sidebar: All nodes with childs are now expandable
  • Sidebar: Summary state of maps can now be shown (enable via global configuration)
  • Overview: Faster rendering of map states
  • Added zoom control bar (enable via map config)
  • Maps can be called with zoom=fill to make the map automatically scale to screen size... read more
