Release Notes: The 3.x series is a major redesign of the older 1.x and 2.x systems. It features a modular structure with dozens of interchangeable modules with a well-defined API. It is available in three varieties: standalone (which runs on top of an already installed OS), live CD (which can be used to analyze or test one home computer), and enterprise (with a server-controlled network boot). Every test parameter can be adjusted. The server-based version includes a database that stores all the data on all computers that were tested by Inquisitor.
Release Notes: This release improved detection (Einarc v1.2 supports more disk controllers), added five new monitorings (including ipmi and lm_sensors), added one test (hdd-smart), and supports automatic device flashing. The live CD now features gfxboot and a new curses UI. The Web UI got an auth system and wiki-like comments for each stage, "attention" status for interactive tests, a Java SSH client, and advanced graphing capabilities. From a developer's perspective, the platform API was stabilized, was further modularized, and got embedded documentation.
Release Notes: The new "standalone" flavor can be built to run Inquisitor on a normal system for demonstration purposes. Monitoring support was added. New detections (BMCs, tape drives) and tests (hardware audit, firmware flashing) are available. New features in the Web UI include current order and search views, a new sticker print system, intelligent computer creation, a profile editor, progress bars, and enhanced usability. Numerous bugs in detections (multi-core processors, ODDs, memory, HDDs, USB FDD/ODD) were fixed. Stress tests are rewritten for stability. Multiple server-side bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: This beta release is not for production use.
