The first maintenance release of the 5.10 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, as NAV does not yet support running under Python 3.11.

Do note that 5.10 is the last series we will package for Debian 10, as NAV 5.11 will drop support for Python versions older than 3.9

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.


  • Fix Machine Tracker DNS search crashing from exhausting all available file descriptors (#2669)
  • ARP records of unreachable devices are now closed by navclean cron job at configurable expiry intervals, rather than immediately as a response to a short ICMP packet loss (#2913)
  • Palo Alto API XML responses are now parsed based on keys instead of indexes (#2924)

Release notes

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

Happy NAVing everyone!
