Centreon MAP 4.1.0

Released Dec. 2016.

The version 4.1.0 of Centreon MAP primarily fixes instabilities in previous versions. Due to certain errors and limitations, we adapted our database model and optimized data transfer between all the components so that the desktop client startup time has been reduced and views on the web client load faster.

We have also prepared the Centreon MAP application for the future addition of features and enhancements.

The current document lists the new features, enhancements and fixes in version 4.1.0.
