As our 2nd birthday 
<https://www.icinga.org/2011/05/06/happy-2nd-birthday-icinga/> was just 
last week, Icinga has a little belated present for you... version 1.4 
for download <http://sourceforge.net/projects/icinga/>! This time round 
we have many new features to show in the Classic UI and new Icinga Web, 
alongside bug fixes and much behind-the-scenes development in Core, 
IDOUtils and API. The two UIs were definitely this release's shining 
stars -- check out Michael F's post 
<https://www.icinga.org/2011/05/04/revisited-icinga-classic-ui/> for 
more info.

As always, our highlights from the change logs  (grouped as core 
<https://wiki.icinga.org/display/Dev/Icinga+Core+Changelog> and web 
<https://wiki.icinga.org/display/Dev/Icinga+Web+Changelog>) follow:
