     Today Icinga celebrates its first birthday. One year ago, Nagios 
was forked and Icinga was publicly announced. We were so excited. It may 
not sound like a big thing, but for us it was a big step and what 
happened in this last 365 days was huge and proved us right.

     First of all, Icinga today is much more than just a Nagios fork. It 
has become an innovative and vivid open source project, with all its ups 
and downs. Lots of people joined the team and are trying to make Icinga 
a better monitoring tool and now it is time to thank everyone who 
helped, even if it was only a small contribution. Thanks for showing 
love for Icinga…you are awesome!

     Another cool thing: we were able to stick almost 100% to our 
roadmap. All releases were ready for download on the promised day and it 
looks like we are even a couple of days ahead with our plans for the 
next release. Lots of new features have been developed: modifications to 
the core, support for Oracle and PostgreSQL, a brand new webinterface 
that has multiple languages provided by the community. Supportwise, we 
implemented a living bug tracking, a feedback system and created even 
our first webcast! And it was fun!:-)

     All of this wouldn´t be possible without the great Icinga team. 
Right now, we are 16 active members from all over the world: from 
Australia to Austria and from Germany to South Africa. As the software 
progresses, so does the team. Everyone is welcome and we want you to be 

     As we see more and more positive blogposts, tweets and case 
studies, we are very encouraged to carry on. Let’s celebrate a happy 
Icinga birthday.
