New version out 0.2.5a

New version out, fixes the pesky NT4 bug (should be all working now *I hope*)

Also in this release is a new CheckModule that checks WMI queries this is just an idea and I need feedback to be able to improve it so please let me know how you would like to use WMI queries. I will also fix some better error handling and write up some simple docs (for now look in the changelog to see how to use the WMI check).
To put it simply:
CheckWMI MaxWarn=10 MaxCrit=15 "Query:load=Select LoadPercentage from win32_Processor"... read more
