The third maintenance release of the 5.1 series of NAV is now out!

The source code is available for download at GitHub.

A new package for Debian 10 (Buster) is available in our APT repository as usual. Packages for Debian 9 (Stretch) have been discontinued.

Please 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.
