Release Notes

This page contains the release notes for all ServersMaster's versions. Thank you for your feedback from the previous releases. We are happy to incorporate your suggestions and we hope you enjoy the new functionality!

Version 1.3.0 (Latest)

Release Date: August 2, 2013

New Features

  • SQL Monitoring via SSH
    Added new Checks: SSH MySQL, SSH PostrgreSQL and SSH MySQL Stats. These Check Technologies are used to monitor the availability, SQL query result or SQL server status of a MySQL or a PostgreSQL server via SSH protocol. Connecting to SQL server via SSH provides a secure way to monitor the service, since the communication between the MySQL server and ServersMaster is encrypted using SSH connection.

Version 1.2.9

Release Date: July 11, 2013

Changed

  • Improved Email Alert Configuration
    Users are able to configure an Email Alert using a single configuration dialog. In the previuous versions they had to use two dialogs - one for the SMTP settings and one for the message text.

Fixed

  • Bugs fixed
    A number of important bugs related to the graphical user interface were fixed.

Version 1.2.8

Release Date: July 05, 2013

New Features

  • Proxy Support
    Proxy Support is a new feature that allows you to setup Proxy Connections at two levels: Application-Wide Proxy and Per Check Proxy. The application wide proxy will be used for all connections by default, unless users specify another Proxy Settings for a particular Check. Please note that the Ping, Traceroute, SNMP and DNS Blacklist based Checks and Tools do not support proxy connection at this moment.
  • Themes
    The visual appearance has been enriched with Themes. Users can select between a Classic and a Modern Theme. By default, the Modern Theme is used which is a brand new look and feel of ServersMaster's user interface.
  • Improved Updates
    If there is a newer version of ServersMaster, the users will be able to see the release notes before proceeding to upgrade.

Changed

  • Better Way of Adding Global Checks
    When users are adding Global Checks, Global SSH Actions and/or Global Service URLs in the Device Settings dialog, they are now able to use a full Global Settings Dialog. This provides a better way to select the Global Checks, SSH Actions and/or Service URLs activated for the Device being configured.

Fixed

  • Calculation of Unread Events
    Fixed the issue of decreasing the number of read events by two when a user deletes an event that is marked as unread.

  • Additional Updates for the Network Tools section
    Added an option to save tool's result as HTML reports or plaintext CSV files. Added an option to save and load host list. Added a Smart Paste feature which detects hostnames and IPs in an arbitrary text (HTML pages, message headers, etc.). It can be used to easily import host lists. Added an option to save and load port numbers, and to select port numbers from a list of well-known port designations. The Port Scan tool has been upgraded to display the common port designation next to the port number. The values of some important form fields are now saved between sessions.
