does p13 fix this:


Not yet, sorry. As soon as it is fixed, you will see a werk related to it. That’s the easiest way to find out about stuff like that.

I miss the good old Release News mailinglist. No marketing, just an info when a new release was out. I just saw this release because I don’t check the forum or the site often enough :frowning:

You can configure mail preferences in your forum profile. There even is a “Mailing list mode”, but I haven’t tried it.
Then set notifications defaults for the “Announcements” category here - tracking or even watching.


Thanks for your input, I haven’t thought of this. I now track the tag “checkmk-release” in “Watching First Post” mode, so I’ll only get notified of new topics with this tag, not answers. Hope this works the way I think :crossed_fingers:
