ZABBIX SIA is proud to announce the availability of ZABBIX 1.3.5.

ZABBIX is an enterprise-class open source distributed monitoring solution.

ZABBIX is released under the GPL, thus it is free of charge for both commercial and non-commercial use. The full license is available at http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.txt.

This document contains the release notes for ZABBIX 1.3.5. The release supports MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite only. Support of Oracle will be restored in later releases.

ZABBIX 1.3.x is currently in a feature freeze. We take the feature freeze seriously and mainly work on fixing actual bugs with few exceptions (auto-discovery, escalations).

Do not use this release in production! It is for beta testing only.

The following sections describe the release in detail and provide late-breaking or other information that supplements the main documentation.
