For a complete history of NAV, see HistoryOfNAV. The first official open source version of NAV was NAV 3.0.

Where is NAV going?

NAV has a long history and a lot of code to maintain. Our current strategy is this:

  • Let there be no doubt; our focus is on network management
  • NAV's key strength is on detecting network topology, tracking machines and visualizing the network.
  • We will focus on supporting commonly deployed network equipment.
  • Reducing complexity is important, both in terms of installing and using NAV.

A more concrete overview of release plans and what we are working on in NAV can be found as milestones, bug reports and blueprints at our Launchpad project page.
