Business Process module

 Fri, 27 Jan 2017 18:01:25 +0100 
There is a lot of progress compared to the old BPM.

Business Process module v2.0.0 released
Want to visualize part of your IT infrastructure in a hierarchical way? Do you know the Business Impact of single services? What would happen in case you power down a specific server? Would it have any influence on your most important services? If yes, which applications would have been affected? This is what the Icinga Business Process module has been built for.

Define as many processes nested as deep as you want: each node can calculate it’s own state based on a given logical operator. Show them as a tree or using the tile renderer. Discover the business impact of your components, simulate state changes and deploy Icinga Service Checks and Notifications. Start to monitor whole processes instead of single services.

TYPO3 v8.5

 Wed, 21 Dec 2016 10:39:11 +0100 
The new forms framework makes a great impression. Not so sure about the new RTE (CKEditor). No question the old one (htmlArea) was a beast and terrible to configure, but when you once had a right configuration, it was very powerful. We will see how much effort it will be to customize the new editor.

#^TYPO3 v8.5 released
Christmas came early this year - TYPO3 v8.5 has been released just now, including some very exciting and promising changes. This so-called sprint release is one further step towards TYPO3 8 LTS, scheduled to be published in April 2017.

Selenium 3.0

 Fri, 14 Oct 2016 15:44:42 +0200 
#^Selenium 3.0: Out Now!
We are very pleased to announce the release of Selenium 3.0. If you’ve been waiting for a stable release since 2.53.1, now’s your chance to update. And if you do, here is what you’ll find:

As we’ve said before, for users of the WebDriver APIs this is a drop-in replacement. You’ll find that modern browsers, such as Chrome and Edge will continue to work just as before, and we’ve taken the opportunity to fix some bugs and improve stability. Selenium Grid users may require updates to their configuration as the json config file format has been updated, as have some of command line parameter options, but the upgrade should also be smooth.

The major change in Selenium 3.0 is we’re removing the original Selenium Core implementation and replacing it with one backed by WebDriver. This will affect all users of the Selenium RC APIs. For more information, please see the previous post.
