FusionInventory Agent 2.3.10 release

Hello FusionInventory users,

The FusionInventory Agent maintainers are glad to announce the 2.3.10 release.

You can download it from the usual places:

See download instructions for details.

This release improves device indentification during network discovery, and provides better identification of adjoining devices when running a remote inventory on a network device. It also fixes a few regressions introduced in 2.3.9 release for license key decoding on Windows. And as future major version (2.4.0) is far away from release, some new features initially introduced there have been backported, such as LXC container and HyperV machines enumeration.

We did our best to provide a solid release, please contact us if you believe you find something unexpected.

FusionInventory Agent 2.3.9 release

Hello FusionInventory users,

The FusionInventory Agent maintainers are glad to announce the 2.3.9 release.

You can download it from the usual places:

See download instructions for details.

This release improves printer consumables identification during network inventory, and adds support for Huawei devices identification (H3C devices were added in 2.3.8). It also externalize the knowledge used for such recognition from the perl code into static data files, to allow easier update without updating the agent itself. Multiple minor local inventory issues were also fixed, mainly for Windows platform. One of those issue involves a behaviour change: user-installed softwares won't be inventoried by defaut anymore, unless scan-user-profile configuration option is used, as it could result in user profile corruption (#2555).

The subsequent 2.3.9.1 release only fixes an installation issue when installing from sources.
