The NEMS 1.6 release cycle will focus on hardware porting and peripherals.

Key Development Features and Goals:

  • Python to be moved to v3 stack in preparation for 2.7 EOL in January.
  • Public release of NEMS Warning Light.
  • check_mk livestatus upgraded to 1.5 (requires C++17).
  • Ports created for as many single board computers as possible.
  • Firewall - NEMS Linux to include ConfigServer Security & Firewall (csf) with Login Failure Daemon (lfd). Internal LAN IP addresses are whitelisted by default, but if a user tries to access your NEMS server from outside the LAN (ie., if you have your NEMS server accessible on the Internet) they will get locked out if they try an incorrect password too many times.
  • Add IPMI (freeipmi) if not added already.
  • Begin work on smart home assistant integration: NEMS Skill for Alexa and Google Assistant.
  • Consistent networking configuration across platform (for setting static IPs, for example).

Release Dates:

NEMS Linux 1.6 is planned for possible release in Q1 of 2020.
