One Video Better than 10 Slideshows

It’s been a while since the successful completion of Zabbix Conference 2012. A couple of weeks ago we already published the conference speakers' presentation slides and the event photo gallery, but now we are glad to introduce to you the conference videos with all the speeches, as well as a Zabbix Conference 2012 promo video that explores the inside feeling of the past conference.

All videos can be viewed and commented on the recently established Zabbix YouTube channel. Please feel free to “like”, “share” and add the videos to your “favorite”. You are also welcome to subscribe to our YouTube channel to be the first to know about upcoming videos!

Automatic database patches

One of the new important features in Zabbix 2.2 version is automatic database upgrading. Currently, in order to upgrade the database to a later Zabbix version, one is required to manually apply all of the SQL patches. With the new feature, a database will be automatically upgraded when starting the upgraded Zabbix server or proxy. For more technical details have a look at the specification.
