The first maintenance release of the 5.0 series of NAV is now out!

The source code is available for download at GitHub.

New packages for Debian 9/10 (Stretch/Buster) are available in our APT repository as usual.

Please also be extra aware of config file changes. Look out for *.dpkg-dist files in /etc/nav and make sure to update your running config.

The virtual appliance will be updated shortly.

Deprecation warning

Python 2 reaches its end-of-life on January 1, 2020. NAV 5.0 therefore moves to Python 3, and as such, you will need at least Python 3.5 to run NAV.

Most of NAV will still run on Python 2 as of the 5.0 release, but from this point, Python 2 will be deprecated and we will start removing code that exists solely to keep compatibility with Python 2.

Fixed GitHub issues in this release:

  • #2016 (ipdevpoll inventory job crashes when processing manufacturing dates from ENTITY-MIB under Python 3)
  • #2019 (IP Device info “Neighbor” tab is blank)
  • #2023 (Netmap layer 3 crashing)
  • #2025 (SeedDB bulk import file upload crashes)
  • #2030 (Ensure internal snmp agent check state stays in sync with global snmpAgentState)
  • #2031 (Fix PortAdmin crash on invalid IP search)
  • #2032 (Replace SNMP community columns in SeedDB netbox listing with management profile lists)
  • #2033 (Don’t crash when logging in users with old-style password hashes)

We always advise you to have a look at NAV’s accompanying release notes when upgrading.

Happy NAVing everyone!
