Pandora FMS 4.0.3 released!

Filed under
Software

A new release of Pandora FMS is coming right after Christmas. Pandora FMS 4.0.3 is a minor update with new interesting features and a lot of bugs fixed in order to make this version more reliable.

One of the new features is Command snapshot. It allows you to get a static image of any command output of your system. With this new feature, for example, you can find out why the CPU usage of your server is high by comparing it with the "top" command output. The second new feature is Graphic comparison. It helps you be updated on the evolution of your system by comparing one time range with the previous one. It is very useful when big changes are made in your system.

We are committed to create a good product. That is why, this release has a lot of bugs fixed and the improvements mentioned below.

-Faster events view with several bugs fixed.
-Improved database management in order to get the main database and history database working in the same host
-Fixed bugs related to the enterprise ACL and policy management.
-Improved enterprise network servers.
-Improved the agent support for Solaris system and Logevent for Windows.
-Among other bug fixes and performance improvements.

You can download Pandora FMS 4.0.3 in different supports (ISO, VMware image, DEB, RPM and TAR.GZ) at http://pandorafms.com/Community/download/ and check the +800 pages documentation at http://pandorafms.com/

KDE: Simple by Default, Powerful When Needed

KDE (back when it was still the name of the desktop environment) and our applications historically stood for powerful features and great flexibility and customizeability. This is what our users love about our software, this is why they choose Plasma and KDE software instead of one of the other Free desktop offerings. And it is also something they would fight tooth and nail for if we wanted to take it away (as many a KDE maintainer who dared to remove a feature he thought was unnecessary can tell). Read more

BitTorrent Bleep alpha released for Android

As an alpha it still has some issues “As with any Alpha, there are some known issues and bugs to work out. Android users will need to set the app to “Wi-Fi Only” unless you have an unlimited data plan; this is only for the time being while we iron out and issue related to battery and data-plan. And while you can move a username from desktop to mobile, Bleep does not yet support moving an existing account from Android to the desktop. And while you can receive messages on multiple devices; messages sent will not be seen across all devices. As with our previous release, communications happen only when all parties are online – you cannot send offline photos or group chats asynchronously.” Read more
