Do not use this release in production! It is for early beta testing only.
The following sections describe the release in detail and provide late-breaking or other information that supplements the main documentation.
New XML based import/export allows manipulation with hosts, items and triggers making it an excellent choice for sharing common templates. Old bulkloader has been removed.
SQLite is an excellent choice for running zero-administration ZABBIX nodes on an embedded hardware. Not recommended for large setups due to inefficient locking mehanism.
