IT sneak-peak

  Additional information in the monitoring and inventory sections [ZBXNEXT-1763]

In Zabbix 2.2 we aim to make host-related information more accessible to users from the monitoring sections. To do that we've improved the host inventory page to display more data about hosts and extended the "Latest data" page to provide information about items. That way the information that earlier was accessible only from the configuration section will also be provided in the monitoring section.
