The 4.3.0 RC1 version of Xymon is now available in the Sourceforge "Files" area. Changes from beta-3 are mostly bugfixes, but there are also changes to the Solaris client (improved swap analysis); limits on the amount of disk space that historical logs will occupy; better detection of flapping statuses; and improvements to the GIF's and stylesheets.
Version 4.2.3 of the Xymon monitoring package has been released. This is the final bug-fix version of the 4.2.x series - it solves a problem with DNS testing, and a problem with ACK cookies that could crash hobbitd.
Xymon version 4.2.2 is now available. This is an update to the 4.2.0 version of Hobbit (project was renamed for legal reasons). This release is an interim release, which adds out-of-the-box support for a number of popular add-ons, e.g. BBWin and Devmon. It also adds several new features to the core package, and fixes a long list of bugs.
I've uploaded the code and revision history for Hobbit to the Subversion repository here on Sourceforge. This is to facilitate more developers to contribute to the project.
Hobbit 4.2.0 is now available. This release adds:

* Lots of other improvements
An important security related bug was found in all Hobbit 4.x versions of Hobbit. Version 4.1.2p2 solves this bug; upgrading is recommended.
The 4.1.2 release candidate is now available, includ ing a lot of bugfixes and some improvements. The final release is expected around Oct. 10 2005.
