The second maintenance release of the NAV 4.2 series is now available.

The source code is available for download at Launchpad. A new package for Debian Wheezy has been published in our APT repository, as usual.


Important note:

This release adds commas to the list of characters escaped in Graphite metric names, which may change the name used for some of your existing metrics after an upgrade. If you want to keep your data, the underlying files need to be renamed manually in your Graphite installation. See the updated release notes for more details.

  • LP#1169559 (Print button for Netmap)
