Dear friends of Check_MK,

the new beta release 1.5.0b9 of Check_MK is ready for download.

We are proud to announce the release of the next beta release for the upcoming
version 1.5. This release is the first release that ships with our new GUI
design (Werk #6356). Most parts of the GUI should already look fine with the
new theme. Note that there are still several open tasks for the new design. We
are still working on it. We would like to know what you think about the new
design, please send us a mail using the feedback address.

To focus on the 1.5 beta feedback we have created a dedicated mail address:

All mails to this address will be used to improve the 1.5 and are completely
free of charge.
