The Nagios Plugins Development Team is proud to announce that nagios-plugins 2.0 has been released and is available for download. In addition to numerous bug fixes and new options, we have included a new plugin – check_uptime (only supported on Linux at the moment – more platforms to follow in the future).

RPMS and DEBS will be available soon.
