jManage 1.0 final released

We are pleased to announce the release of jManage 1.0 final. This is a result of a lot of hard work by the jManage contributors and feedback from the jManage users.

jManage is a open source, web and command-line based JMX client, which provides a centralized console for managing application clusters and distributed-application environments. jManage goes beyond an ordinary JMX client by providing features like Alerts, Graphs, Security, SNMP support, etc. The jManage mission is to provide an open source management platform, which can be used to manage and monitor complete production environment.

We recommend that you upgrade from 0.5 release to 1.0, to make use of new features like Alerts, Graphs, SNMP support, etc.

Following is a list of new features in 1.0:

- Graphs

See html-data-format.properties and text-data-format.properties under config.

- Changes to application type management (introduced application-type-config.xml)

configuration and also the SSL configuration to jetty-config.xml. Please
refer Jetty documentation to modify this file.
