    been dropped
  - For best performance we strongly suggest PHP 7
  - When using MySQL, please consider slowly moving to at least
    version 5.5. One of our next versions will introduce official
    Emoji support ???! That's not possible with older MySQL
    versions. However, 1.4.x still supports 5.1.x
  * Fixed issues and related features
  - You can find issues and feature requests related to this
    release on our [roadmap]
  * Dashboard and Dashlets
  - Multiple new Dashboards have been introduced, their layout
    has been optimized
  - Dashboards are made aware of newly introduced permissions and
    try to provide useful hints
  * GUI, UX and Responsiveness
  - Many little improvements related to mobile devices have been
    applied to Dashboards, Forms and Tables
  - Search has been both improved and simplified. On most tables
    search spawns multiple columns, visible and invisible ones.
    Multiple search terms are combined in an intuitive way.
  - Pagination (and search) has been added to those tables where
    it was still missing
  - Some form fields referencing related objects are no longer
    static drop-down selection elements but offer suggestions as
    you type. This makes forms faster, especially in larger
  - Navigation has been simplified, redirects after form
    submissions have been improved, more possibilities to jump
    to related objects have been added
  - Form field description has been moved to the bottom of the
    screen. Might be easier to overlook this way, but while the
    former implementation was great for people navigating forms
    with their Keyboard, it was annoying for Mouse lovers
  - Double-Click a Tab to enlarge it to full width
  - Action Link bar has been unified, all links should now
    respect permissions
  - All tables showing historic data are now grouped by day
  - Property Modifiers, Sync Rules, Import Sources and more
    objects now offer description fields. This allows you to
    explain your colleagues all the magic going on behind the
  * Object Types
  - Service Sets got quite some tweaking and bug fixing
  - Groups of all kinds are now able to list their members,
    even when being applied based on filters
  - Command Argument handling has been improved
  - It is now possible to configure Dependencies through the
    Icinga Director
  - Cloning Hosts now allows to also optionally clone their
    Services and Service Sets
  * Templates
  - The template resolver has been rewritten, is now easier to
    test, strict and faster
  - Template Tree has been re-written and now also immediately
    shows whether a template is in use
  - When navigating to a Template you'll notice a new usage
    summary page showing you where and how that specific template
    is being used. Therefor, many tables are now internally able
    to filter by inheritance
  * Template Choices
  - While Host- and Service-Templates are powerful building
    blocks, having to choose from a single long list might become
    unintuitive as this list starts growing.
    That's where Template Choices jump in. They allow you to
    bundle related Templates together and offer your users to
    choose amongst them in a meaningful way.
  * Apply rules
  - Various related issues have been addressed
  - A new virtual "is true / is set" operator is now available
  * Permissions and Restrictions
  - It is now possible to limit access to Hosts belonging to a
    list of Hostgroups.
    This works also for Hostgroups assigned through Apply Rules.
  - Data List entries can be made available based on Roles
  * Data Types
  - SQL Query and Data List based Data Fields can now both be
    offered as Array fields, so that you can choose among
    specific options when filling such
  - New overview tables give admins a deep look into used Custom
    Variables, their distinct values and usage
  - Various issues related to Boolean values have been fixed
  * Import and Synchronization
  - Many issues have been addressed. Merge behavior, handling of
    special fields and data types
  - Problems with Import Source deletion on PostgreSQL have been
  - New Property Modifiers are available. When importing single
    Services you might love the "Combine" modifier
  - It is now possible to re-arrange execution order of Property
    Modifiers and Sync Properties
  - Preview rendering got some improvements
  - "Replace" policy on Custom Vars is now always respected
  - Using VMware/vSphere/ESX? There is now a new powerful module
    providing a dedicated Import Source
  - A new Self Service API now allows to completely automate your
    Icinga Agent roll-out, especially (but not only) for
    Microsoft Windows
  - List views are now officially available. They are very fast
    and stream the result in a memory-efficient way
  - Documentation better explains how to deal with various
    objects, especially with different types of Services (!!!!!)
  * Internal architecture
  - Many base components have been completely replaced and
    re-written, based on and early prototype of our upcoming
    Icinga PHP Library (ipl)
* Tue Aug 15 2017
- change spec to use php7 also
* Thu Aug 03 2017
- update to 1.3.2
  * Fixed issues and related features
  - You can find issues and feature requests related to this
    release on our roadmap
  * Apply Rules
  - Slashes in Apply Rules have not been correctly escaped
  - Services applied based on Arrays (contains) did not show up
    in the Hosts Services list, and therefor it was not possible
    to override their vars
  - Some magic has been introduced to detect numbers in apply
    rules - not perfect yet
  * Host Groups
  - It has not been possible to modify Host Groups without
    defining an apply rule
  - Hostgroups have not been sorted
  - It is now legal to have external HostGroup objects
  * Rendered Config

  - Selecting multiple hosts at once and deleting them had no
  - Documentation got some little improvements
  - German translation has been refreshed
  - Header alignment has been improved
  - Escaping issues with the Inspect feture have been addressed
  * Kickstart
  - Kickstart is more robust and now able to deal with renamed
    Icinga Masters and more
  * CLI
  - It is not possible to list and show Service Sets on the CLI
  * Import and Sync
  - Synchronizing Data List entries caused problems
  - A new Import Modifier has been added to deal with LConf
  - Issues with special characters like spaces used in column
    names shipped by Import Sources have been addressed
  - A new Property Modifier allows to filter Arrays based on
    wildcards or regular expressions
  - A new Property Modifier allowing to "Combine multiple
    properties" has been introduced. It's main purpose is to
    provide reliable unique keys when importing single service
  - A new warning hint informs you in case you created a Sync
    Rule without related properties
  - Synchronization filters failed when built with columns not
    used in any property mapping
  * Auditing
  - The audit log now also carries IP address and username
  * Generic bug fixes
  - Fixed erraneous loop detection under certain (rare)
  - Various issues with PHP 5.3 have been fixed
  - Combination of multiple table filters might have failed
    (in very rare conditions)
* Wed Mar 01 2017
- update to 1.3.1
  * Fixed issues and related features
  - You can find issues and feature requests related to this
    release on our [roadmap]
  * Service Sets
  - Various little issues have been fixed. You can now remove Sets from hosts,
    even when being empty. Services from Sets assigned to parents or via apply
    rule are now shown for every single host, and their custom vars can be
    overridden at a single host level
  - Sets assigned to single hosts have been shown, variable overrides have been
    offered - but rendering did not include the Director-generated template
    necessary to really put them into place. This has been fixed
  * Usability
  - A nasty bug hindered fields inherited from Commands from being shown ad a
    Service level - works fine right now
  - There is now a pagination for Zones
  - Multiedit no longer showed custom fields, now it works again as it should
  * Rendering
  - Disabling a host now also disables rendering of related objects (Endpoint,
    Zone) for hosts using the Icinga Agent
  - Ticket creation through the REST API has been broken, is now fixed
  * Performance, Internals
  - A data encoding inconsistency slowed down apply rule editing where a lot of
    host custom vars exists
  - Some internal changes have been made to make parts of the code easier to be
    used by other modules
* Wed Feb 22 2017
- update README.SUSE
* Tue Jan 24 2017
- update to 1.3.0
  * Fixed issues and related features
  - You can find issues and feature requests related to this
    release on our [roadmap]
  * Service Sets
  - You are now allowed to create sets of services and assign all
    of them at once with an apply rule
  - Sets can be assigned to host templates or directly to single
  * Service Variable Overrides
  - When switching to a host view's services tab, you'll now not
    only see its very own services, but also ones that result
    from an apply rule
  - You can override those services custom field values for every
    single host
  - Same goes for services belonging to Service Sets
  * Apply rules
  - A new "contains" operator gives more possibilities when
    working with arrays
  - Service vars are now also offered in the apply rule form
  * Custom Variables and Fields
  - Issues with special characters in custom variables have been
  - In case mandatory fields should not have been enforced, this
    should work fine right now
  - Fields can now be shown based on filter rules. Example use
    case: show a `Community String` field in case `SNMPv2` has
    been selected, but show five other fields for `SNMPv3`. This
    allows one to build powerful little wizard-like forms like
    shown [here](
  * Agents and Satellites
  - It is now possible to set Agent and Zone settings on every
    single host. This means that you no longer need to provide
    dedicated Templates for Satellite nodes
  - The proposed Agent Deployment script has been improved for
    Windows and Linux
  - Infrastructure management got a dedicated dashboard
  - Kickstart Wizard helps when working with Satellites. This has
    formerly been a hidden, now it can be accessed through the
    Infrastructure dashboard
  * Commands
  - Command arguments are now always appended when inheriting a
    template. This slightly changes the former behavior, but
    should mostly be what one would expect anyways.
  * Testing
  - [Testing instructions]( have been improved
  - Running the test suite has been simplified
  - While we keep running our own [tests]( on software
    platforms, tests are now also visible on Travis-CI and
    triggered for all pull requests
  * Compatibility
  - We worked around a bug in very old PHP 5.3 versions on
    CentOS 6
  * Activity log
  - You can now search and filter in the Activity log
  - In case you have hundreds of thousands of changes you'll
    notice that pagination performance improve a lot
  - A quick-filter allows you to see just your very own changes
    with a single click
  * Deployment
  - More performance tweaking took place. 1.2.0 was already very
    fast, 1.3.0 should beat it
  - Deployment log got better at detecting files and linking them
    directly from the log output, in case any error occured
  * Work related to Icinga 1.x
  - Deploying to Icinga 1.x is completely unsupported. However,
    it works and a lot of effort has been put into this feature,
    so it should be mentioned here
  - Please note that the Icinga Director has not been designed
    to deploy legacy 1.x configuration. This is a sponsored
    feature for a larger migration project and has therefore been
    built in a very opinionated way. You shouldn't even try to
    use it. And if so, you're on your own. Nobody will help you
    when running into trouble
  * Translation
  - German translation is now again at 100%
  - Issues related to fetching object lists have been fixed
  * Integrations
  - We now hook into the [Cube]
    ( module,
    this gives one more possibility to benefit from our
    multi-edit feature
  - Icinga Web 2.4 caused some minor issues for 1.2.0. It works,
    but an upgrade to Director 1.3.0 is strongly suggested
* Tue Nov 15 2016
- update to 1.2.0
  * Fixed a lot of issues and related features
  - You can find issues and feature requests related to this
    release on our [roadmap](
  * Permissions and restrictions
  - Permissions are now enforced. Please check your role
    definitions, permission names have changed and are now
    enforced everywhere
  - Configuration preview, Inspect action, Deployment and others
    can be granted independently
  * Auditing
  - Director provides a nice activity log. Now it is also
    possible to additionally log to Syslog or File in case you
    want to archive all actions elsewhere. Access to the audit
    log in the Director can be controlled with a new permission
  * Configuration kickstart
  - Now imports also existing notification commands
  - Kickstart can be re-triggered on demand at any time
  * Performance
  - Config rendering got a huge performance boost. In large
    environments we managed it to deploy a real-world
    configuration 5 times as fast as before
  * Import / Sync
  - Various improvements have been applied, mostly hidden small
    features that should make work easier. Better form field
    descriptions, more possibilities when it goes to syncing
    special fields like "imports"
  - Property modifiers can now generate new modified columns at
    import time
  - New property modifiers are available. There is a pretty
    flexible DNS lookup, you can cast to Integer or Boolean, JSON
    decoding and more is offered
  - Datalist entries can now be imported and synchronized, this
    was broken in 1.1
  * Configuration possibilities
  - You can now define assign rules nested as deep as you want,
    based on all host and/or service properties
  - It is now possible to define "assign for" constructs, looping
    over hashes or dictionaries
  - Improved Icinga 2 DSL support in commands, implicit support
    for skip\_key
  - More and more developers are contributing code. We therefore
    simplified the way to launch our unit tests and provided
    related documentation
  - Other objects can be referred as a dropdown or similar in
    custom variables
  * GUI and usability
  - Form error handling got a lot of tweaking, eventual
    exceptions are caught in various places and presented in a
    readable way
  - The deployment button is now easier to find
  - Configuration preview has been improved and allows a full
    config diff even before deploying the configuration
  - Inheritance loops are now shown in a nice way and can be
    resolved in the GUI
  - A new hidden gem is the multiedit functionality.
    Press SHIFT/CTRL while selecting multiple hosts and modify
    imports, custom vars and other properties for all of them at
  - Errors or warnings in all historic startup logs now link
    directly to the related config file at the time being,
    pointing to the referred line
  * Agent setup
  - The Windows kickstart script got some small improvements and
    now enables all related ITL commands per default
  * CLI
  - You can find a few new commands, with the ability to list or
    fetch all hosts at once in various ways being the most
    prominent one
  * Related modules
  - There are now more additional modules implementing Director
    Hooks. AWS import for EC2 instances, ELBs and Autoscaling
    Groups. File import for CSV, JSON, YAML and XML. We heard
    from various successful Import source implementations in
    custom projects and would love to see more of those being
    publicly available!

    setup is provided
  * Apply Rules
  - It's now possible to work with apply rules in various places
  * Notifications
  - All components required to deploy notifications are now
    available. ENV for commands is still missing, however it's
    pretty easy to work around this
  * Automation
  - Job Scheduler and Job Runner have been introduced. Import,
    Sync, Deploy and run Housekeeping in the background with
    full control and feedback in the GUI
  - There is a new intelligent purge option allowing one to purge
    only those objects that vanished at involved Import Sources
    between multiple Import and Sync Runs.
