The first maintenace release of the 5.8 series of NAV is now out!

The source code is available for download at GitHub.

New packages for Debian 10 (Buster) and 11 (Bullseye) are available in our APT repository as usual. We haven’t started building packages for Debian 12 (Bookworm) yet, but hope to do so by the end of 2023.

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.


  • Constrain version of 3rd party module ciscoconfparse, in order to avoid NAV not working under Python 3.7 (#2770, #2771)
  • Fix ipdevpoll crash error from using SNMP v2c profile example that came with NAV (#2767, #2768)
  • Gracefully handle encoding errors in invalid sysname/IP input in SeedDB IP Device form (#2764)
  • Gracefully handle errors from invalid profiles list input in SeedDB IP Device form (#2765)

Release notes

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

Happy NAVing everyone!
