   MRTG-2.8.0 is on  http://ee-staff.ethz.ch/~oetiker/webtools/mrtg/pub

I have just published mrtg-2.8.0 this version has 3 major changes and a few
minor ones:

* Builtin MIB Parsing: You can now load real MIB files and use
  symbolic names in the Target names. BEWARE the list of predefined MIB
  entries has changed, only MIB-II and the FrameRelay MIBs are preloaded
  in MRTG. If you are monitoring Squid you must load the Squid MIB.

* Locale Support: Support for Multiple Languages has been integrated into
  mrtg. At the moment only Danish and English are supported. Contributions
  are welcome. Check locales_mrtg.pm ...
  -- Morten Nielsen <msn at ipt.dtu.dk>

* PNG support: In line with the latest release of GD lib I have added PNG
  support to mrtg. The autoconf system will automatically detect if your
  version of gdlib supports Gif of Png
