[rrd-users] rrdtool-1.3rc3 front-end compatibility report

Here's my report of rrdtool frontends compatibility with rrdtool 1.3rc3.  My platform is OS X.

-Smokeping 2.2.4 displays summary graphs, but if I drill down to the separate long term graphs they are blank.  I do see values in the legends, so I don't know why.  But I didn't check this immediately before the rrdtool upgrade, so perhaps this problem occurred earlier.

-NRG (latest) is not fine; it is a perl based grapher that I use that generates its own web pages and links and most of those are broken. The graph pages I've manually coded are okay so the graphing itself is ok if the links are right, just not the automatic web page stuff.  I've emailed the developer.

-Cacti (latest) works fine, including the php weathermap (Cacti plugin)

-NeDi (latest) works fine

As far as changes to the instructions, since I maintain the rrdtool MacPort, I can say that all I did was remove the dependencies: cgilib and libart_lgpl, and add libpng, cairo.  No other changes were needed.

A tester reported a regression with logarithmic graphs versus 1.2
(the cacti problemm refered to in RC2). The fix for this and an
update to rrdtool dump (backward compatibility) are in RC3.

* I have still no reports from Frontend people regarding their
  compatibility issues (if any).

Please test this release on your system. I am especially interested
in additions to the build instructions:


If no major issues are found, I will be releasing 1.3.0 some time
next week.
