Release Version 27 -= Polish Landscapes =-

What's new in this release


  • check_multipath: free memory allocated to the pattern buffer by the function regcomp;
  • lib/meminfo_procps, lib/vminfo_procps: fix the libprocps-ng:newlib detection at build time (this is an experimental feature because a stable libprocps-ng newlib library has not been released yet).


  • check_network: highly improved by adding a bunch of new command-line options;
  • check_network: support WireGuard interfaces;
  • lib/netinfo (check_network): switch from getifaddrs glib call to linux rtnetlink to be able to address more network interface types;
  • lib/netinfo-private: switch to ETHTOOL_GLINKSETTINGS when possible (requires Linux kernel 4.9+), revert to the obsolete ETHTOOL_GSET otherwise.

For more details, you can look at the file NEWS.
