Everybody, Stand Up! Zabbix 2.0 is Here!

We are very proud to announce the release of a long-awaited, stable version of Zabbix 2.0. It is now available for you to download on our website.

It could be that some of you participated in testing release candidates, but now it is time to migrate your systems!

Alexei Vladishev

I am very proud to share this great news with you! Many release dates were given, and many hats were eaten, but finally Zabbix 2.0 is out. The Zabbix team of developers was working hard to bring it to you.

Zabbix 2.0 is not only a new generation monitoring solution, it is also a combination of the features that you, our users, were requesting.

I would like to congratulate everyone, who was working on this project so hard, everyone in my team! Thank you all for contribution to this project. Without you it wouldn’t be possible!

What’s New in Zabbix 2.0

Above 35 major features are introduced in Zabbix 2.0 version. We put a lot of thinking and efforts to implement many new technologies and techniques to bring your Zabbix experience to a totally new level, while many improvements were suggested and sponsored by our commercial customers and active community members.

We tried hard to meet most of your expectations and here are only some of the novelties:

  • Low-level discovery
  • Automatic host inventory population
  • Web monitoring by Zabbix proxies
  • Multiple-interface support per host
  • Direct JMX monitoring support
  • Visible host name

Besides those new features, Zabbix 2.0 can boast about a new layout and a more-intuitive front-end, new shiny icons, restyled tables and forms, and improved network maps. Zabbix 2.0 is faster than ever. Its improved performance allows to monitor even more devices without compromising the solution reliability.

See more details on What’s New page.

Keeping the Promise

In May 2011 Alexei made a big mistake. In front of a large crowd he announced that the release of Zabbix 2.0 will occur in August 2011 or he will eat his hat. We missed the date, we admit that. However, to be honest to all those people who heard those words, we forced Alexei to fulfill his promise.

But it seems like keeping the promise never before was so tasty and sweet. Take a look at how it happened and don’t try it at home, alone. This may ruin your figure
