Icinga 1.6 is out now for download 
<http://sourceforge.net/projects/icinga/>! This release is overflowing 
with useability enhancements in both Icinga New Web and Icinga Classic 
UI, with an exciting new SLA extension in IDOUtils to boot.


In the Classic UI and Core we have extended logging capabilities for 
easier troubleshooting, added notifications for stalked hosts and 
services and improved performance in notification logic. We also are 
proud to say we've added the ability to set acknowledgements with expiry 
time -- an idea that has come off ourfeedback poll 
<http://feedback.icinga.org/>, so keep them coming!

For Icinga Web users, a new, optional SLA extension can be found in the 
latest IDOUtils. The module breaks down critical events to distinguish 
downtime and acknowledgement periods, taking SLA reporting to a new 
level of precision -- accessible from the Icinga Web interface. Even 
better, the related expansion of the underlying database model and 
IDO2DB logic gives us the foundations we need to move towards 
comprehensive SLA reporting direct from the database.

Another new feature to check out is the Tackle cronk. This gives an 
overview of all information related to any monitoring object. Specify a 
host, and the Tackle cronk will display its related services, host 
groups, contacts, custom variables, comments, SLA details and so on. The 
Tackle cronk was designed by admins for admins, and is our preliminary 
version -- so please add to its development with your feedback.

We hope you enjoyIcinga 1.6<http://sourceforge.net/projects/icinga/>and 
share your thoughts with us on ourmailing lists 
<http://sourceforge.net/mail/?group_id=260128>anddevelopment tracker 
<https://dev.icinga.org/>. Hailing from the Icinga hack corner of the 
OSMC, we thank all the testers and contributors to this release!
