 +==== Frontend ==== 
 +
 +=== Ability to change the default language ===
 +
 +It is now possible to choose the default language for the Zabbix frontend during the [[:​manual/​installation/​install#​installing_zabbix_web_interface| installation]] process. After the installation,​ the system default language can be changed in the //​Administration->​General->​GUI//​ section. If a user has not specified another language in the profile settings, the system-wide setting is used. Login page for all users is displayed in the chosen default language.
 +
 +=== Adding hosts without interfaces ===
 +
 +It is now possible to add a host without interfaces, which may be useful for hosts used only for trapper items or web checks.
 +
 +For a new host now no interfaces are defined by default. To add a new interface, click on //Add// in the Interfaces block and select the interface type from a dropdown.
