This is a stable beta, and we ask that as many as possible will help
us in testing this beta. We have tested this release on Linux, Solaris
and on FreeBSD and OpenBSD.

There are many and big changes compared with the latest 3.2 release.
To many to mention here, please check out the CHANGES.txt file.

To get a quick overview of some of the new features in this release,
please check out the online presentation at (included in the software

Finally, everyone loves a screen shoot:

Changes in this beta from the first beta:

*  The device code is changed so it will always report if a device is
   mounted or not, previous beta releases only checked a device if an
   if-test was used in a check device entry.

*  Fixed the problem, where monit identified a running process as non-
   running. Thanks to Shannon E. Reall <address@hidden> for reporting the

*  Monit does not use /proc/kcore on Linux anymore. This makes it
   possible to use monit on a 2.4 kernel with the grsecurity patch and
   on a 2.6 kernel with architectures such as ARM. Thanks to Arkadiusz
   Miskiewicz <address@hidden> for reporting the problem and
   providing the patch.

*  Updated the presentation, added a slide for testing a device and
   added some nice icons to the architecture slide.

Release plan:

If all goes well, monit 4.0 will be released early next week.
