In the last week we worked on topology maps and BSM, Drools and TSRM trouble ticketing, code cleanup, Minion, and the Meridian 2016 release.
Github Project Updates
Seth did some more fixes to the way JMS queues are managed from the Minion. Chandra has continued working on making detectors run remotely in the Minion container.
Topology Maps and Business Service Monitor
Markus did more work on cleaning up the GraphML provider for topology maps, as well as some bug fixing related to multiple topology providers being loaded at one time. Dustin worked on the custom edge status provider for BSM some more.
Drools and TSRM Trouble Ticketing
Markus, Chandra, and Ronny did some work on fixing bugs in the Drools and TSRM ticketing layers.
With Meridian 2016 and Horizon 18 out of the way, Seth has been spending some time cleaning up some code in the develop/future-19 tree, including renaming jars and removing unnecessary dependencies. Also, Seth finished his work on improving the Eventd and Scriptd queue handling to be more performant.
Web Site Updates
Ronny has been spearheading an overhaul to the OpenNMS.org web site and the plan is to put the new site up very soon. He worked with Devyn last week on the migration plan, and we are currently planning on starting by moving the wiki from opennms.org/wiki to wiki.opennms.org tomorrow.
Meridian 2016 Released
Last week The OpenNMS Group released Meridian 2016, the long-term-support version of OpenNMS. For an overview of what has changed since Meridian 2015, see the release notes, but it is essentially OpenNMS Horizon 17 plus a number of bugfixes that went into the OpenNMS Horizon 18 branch.
Upcoming Events and Appearances
Dev-Jam 2016 is sneaking up on is, but there is still plenty of time to join us in Minnesota. For more information, see The Dev-Jam 2016 wiki page. Mike Huot has written up a proposal letter you can use to help explain to management why attending Dev-Jam is a good idea. Feel free to copy this letter and join us in Minnesota this year!
