+ Icinga 2 is a general-purpose monitoring application and the next generation
+ after Icinga 1.x - which was a Nagios fork. It should fit the needs of a small
+ environment as well as big installations.
+ .
+ Rewritten from scratch in C++, with multi-threading and cluster support.
+ .
+ Features:
+  * All common features of Icinga and Nagios
+  * Much faster and more scalable than Icinga 1 and Nagios
+  * New configuration format, more intuitive and template based
+  * Monitoring several services by executing checks (see nagios-plugins*)
+    for example ICMP/ping, SMTP, POP3, HTTP, NNTP, or other TCP port
+  * Any small script can be used as a check plugin, when following the Nagios
+    plugin API
+  * Notifications about alerts with any custom script, or shipped examples
+  * Native support for Livestatus and Graphite
  .
  This is the metapackage to install all Icinga 2 features.
