Cacti 0.8.6c Out

#1 Post by raX » Sun Dec 19, 2004 6:24 pm

Finally... Cacti version 0.8.6c has been released :-D. I realize that the patches against version 0.8.6b have been piling up lately and I greatly appreciate the patience.

Anyhow, there are a good number of bug fixes included in this release related to the poller, templates, user management, and more. A few features also made it in as well including the often requested multiple-OID parsing support for data queries. Be sure to check out the release notes and grab this release at the downloads page.

Below is the complete changelog:

Code: Select all

-bug#0000354: User Name field always displays "admin" in Mozilla web browser.
-bug#0000293: JavaScript selection bug on the "New Graphs" page.
-bug#0000352: Problem with the current data source item when using the "Similar Data Sources" special data source.
-bug#0000348: Scale problems with the "ucd/net - Memory Usage" graph template.
-bug#0000358: Problems adding the same graph to more than one graph tree.

Negative values

-bug#0000355: Allow scientific and negative numbers to be returned from a script.
I Perhaps missed something when upgrading, but I can't graph negative values. Anyone to give us more feedback ? Perhaps it's because of a wrong configuration.

Thanks by advance,

Mike

I thought I was going to have to wait for 0.8.7 for this. I think Christmas came early this year. :D
