We are very pleased to announce the new Service Pack 1 for version 5.1 of Pandora FMS, with many new features and numerous bug fixes compared to the last release that we launched last June. You can find out everything below:

*Improved planning of scheduled stops, and their exclusion in all reports of SLA. Now, the reports show those periods that have been excluded due to a scheduled stop. The system administrator can decide if it's possible to set scheduled stops after the event or not. You can download the scheduled tasks on a CSV.

*New multithreaded SNMP traps server.

*New Packet loss remote plugin that measures the packet loss in a network. This plugin is now included by default in Pandora FMS.

*New features added to the IPAM module (IP address management): IP's reservation, massive operations and delegation of network management to users non administrators of Pandora FMS.

*Unix agent now supports UDP mode for remote command execution.

*Now it’s possible to visualize traffic graphics per interface (combined) from the main agent view:

* Non-init modules will not be deleted anymore by default. There is an option of the setup that controls this behaviour.

*Improved the verbosity of Pandora FMS, introducing by default the server level 3 and showing some critical problems as events.

*Improved the server log rotation, with a new parameter to specify number of rotated log to be stored in disk prior deletion.

*Added dynamic macros for agent custom fields.

*Optional translation of OID's for better performance in the SNMP traps processor.

*New contextual help system and "step by step" Wizard, that we hope will help less experienced users to take advantage of the best options of Pandora FMS.

*Rewamped code for TCP checks, improving performance and speed.

*Unix Agent log parser now supports log rotation detection by inode.

*From this version, Unix agent supports global macros.

*Fixed some pending issues in the http/Goliat server, increasing performance and speed.

*Improved usability of the Pandora FMS menus: creating an "anchor" mode and allowing the scroll of the contents without having to scroll down to the bottom of the page.

*Improvements in the services: Added new "simple" mode that allows to create services without taking into account the weights, and considering only two types of elements: critical and non critical.

*API & CLI new functions (add event comment, recreate collections and others).

*New dynamic radial network maps.

*New IP SLA Cisco plugin to measurig quality of service in networks of latest technology. Specially recommended for VoIP services or services sensitives to package loss and high latency.

*Audit information can now be exported to Excel or PDF.

*New statistics system of traps received which is very useful to filter by source IP or OID.

PC-MOS/386 is the latest obsolete operating system to open source on Github

PC-MOS/386 was first announced by The Software Link in 1986 and was released in early 1987. It was capable of working on any x86 computer (though the Intel 80386 was its target market). However, some later chips became incompatible because they didn't have the necessary memory management unit. It had a dedicated following but also contained a couple of design flaws that made it slow and/or expensive to run. Add to that the fact it had a Y2K bug that manifested on 31 July 2012, after which any files created wouldn't work, and it's not surprising that it didn't become the gold standard. The last copyright date listed is 1992, although some users have claimed to be using it far longer. Read more

GIMP, More Awesome Than I Remember

For what seems like decades, GIMP (Graphic Image Manipulation Program) has been the de facto standard image editor for Linux. It works well, has many features, and it even supports scripting. I always have found it a bit clumsy, however, and I preferred using something else for day-to-day work. I recently had the pleasure of sitting at a computer without an image editor though, so I figured I'd give GIMP another try on a non-Linux operating system. See, the last time I tried to use GIMP on OS X, it required non-standard libraries and home-brew adding. Now, if you head over to the GIMP site, you can download a fully native version of GIMP for Windows, OS X and Linux. Read more

Linux 4.13.9

Linux 4.14-rc6

So rc6 is delayed, not because of any development problems, but simply because the internet was horribly bad my usual Sunday afternoon time, and I decided not to even try to fight it. And by delaying things, I got a couple more ull requests in from Greg. Yay, I guess? rc6 is a bit larger than I was hoping for, and I'm not sure whether that is a sign that we _will_ need an rc8 after all this release (which wouldn't be horribly surprising), or whether it's simply due to timing. I'm going to leave that open for now, so just know that rc8 _may_ happen. Read more Also: Linux 4.14-rc6 Released: Linux 4.14 Kernel Final In 2~3 Weeks
