Dear Friends!

The New Year has finally come and we have a lot of news to share with you. Even though Christmas is over, Zabbix has kept one more present for you (yes, Santa is aware of that).

Our Late Christmas Present for You!

Yes, it is finally here! The new version of Zabbix software - 1.8.10 was released on 28th of December 2011.

The new 1.8.10 version is even more stable and several problems have been resolved. With 1.8 branch entering maintenance phase, only one feature improvement has been made - Zabbix server now records the amount of values removed by the housekeeper for items, events, alerts and sessions.

Please see Release notes for more detailed information or download it.

But that is not all! Don’t forget about the Christmas present we gave you in December, our FREE Turn-Key Solution for all new Gold or Platinum Support contracts. Still haven’t got it? Hurry up! You are running out of time! This promotion will end on 31st of January 2012.
