OpenNMS 1.5.94 Released

Yesterday, after Ben and Matt overcame some issues with getting our deployment tool to work, OpenNMS version 1.5.94 was released.

I had been using it at a client site all week and I have to say it is the best OpenNMS yet. It is pretty much what will be in 1.6.0. We’re planning a 1.5.95 release for mid-October, with 1.6.0 following by Halloween.

There were over 120 bugs fixed between 1.5.93 and this release, as well as a number of new features (including an integration between OpenNMS and OTRS which I’ll talk more about next week).

We hope you enjoy this release and find it useful.

  1. I’m not sure what you mean. I haven’t done an install on OpenSolaris but it runs fine on Solaris 10.

    We have run into an issue running on openJDK, but that is due to a bug in the JDK itself which has been duly reported and should be fixed soon.

  2. Hi tarus,

    This could be my problem here – I tried some tests and found that if I installed 1.5.94 over a 1.5.93 installation, there were java errors in the output.log file, however on a clean install or when I removed all except the etc directory, everything looks fine 🙂

    Be advised that the bin/opennms shell script assumes that /bin/sh is the bash shell too (as opposed to bourne)

    Thanks for all of the effort to get the release out!

  3. Yeah – the jar files in /opt/opennms/lib get changed a little each release, and if you have two of the same (say, from an older release) it’ll cause issues.

    I need to figure out package management on Solaris to allow for config files, like RPM and debs.
