Vote for Zabbix in:

Linux Journal - Readers' Choice 2010

Hi All,

I’m pleased to greet you this summer day. Zabbix Team have had five-day long holidays devoted to solstice celebration. So the mood is great and also we are miles ahead from our fellow competitors in “What’s your favorite Linux monitoring application” survey. On behalf of all Zabbix team I want to thank you for your votes and comments which are so nice to read.

Nevertheless, Linux Journal 2010 Readers’ Choice Awards Survey is open. They have announced the categories and it’s now possible to vote. Dear Zabbix community, Ladies and Gentlemen, we will appreciate your contribution a lot. Please follow this link to vote.


Bringing Zabbix Quality to a New Level

We all want Zabbix to be as good as possible - and many have already helped to achieve that with vigorous testing. If you still haven't done that, now is your chance to participate in making sure that the next release of Zabbix is better than ever.

Starting with 1.8.3, Zabbix release process will become more standard-like and a release candidate phase will be introduced. A release candidate is a phase where a release is considered finished, but larger audience is invited to verify that. At this phase only really serious bugs will be fixed to minimize the chance of regressions.

Release candidate, or "rc" for short, gives you a stable target to test in your environment and ensure that things you rely on work as expected. The release candidate package will be available for download by the middle of July - make sure to head there and test extensively.
