             eg. to disable cf-monitord, run cf-agent with "-Dset_persistent_disable_cf_monitord"
             to re-enable use: "-Dclear_persistent_disable_cf_monitord"
           - Host side report content filter for class, variable, promise log and monitoring reports.
             Controlled by report_data_select body in access promise.

       - Windows
           - Windows Powershell support. execresult(), returnszero() and commands promises now
             supports "powershell" as an option in addition to the "noshell" and "useshell" variants.
             "powershell" is also added as a hard class in order to test whether Powershell is available.

       Changes:
       - Mission Portal

           - Improved ACL handling on Windows, which led to some syntax changes. We now consistently
             use the term "default" to describe ACLs that can be inherited by child objects. These
             keywords have received new names:
               acl_directory_inherit -> acl_default
                specify_inherit_aces -> specify_default_aces
             The old keywords are deprecated, but still valid. In addition, a new keyword
             "acl_inherit" controls inheritance behavior on Windows. This feature does not exist on
             Unix platforms.
       - Enterprise API
           - Export SQL results to sqlite3 database file
       - Data Collection and cf-hub

             This option used to reside in cf-runagent, and has been moved to cf-hub.
           - Full and delta reports send only mon and sys variables as also hosts excluding policy
             server are reporting only subset of monitoring data.
             This can be changed using access promise in default cf_serverd.cf policy.
       - Removed license checking on hosts.

       Bugfixes:
       - Mission Portal

3.0.0   New Reporting Engine: A SQL interface to reports collected by hub.

    We allow all standardised SQL SELECT constructs to query the SQL reports database, with the following additions:
        - TIMESTAMP_UNIX() - seconds elapsed since 1970
        - TIMESTAMP_UNIX_DAYS() - days elapsed since 1970
    These are added to avoid use of non-portable SQL date/time functions.

        Enterprise API:
                Read + write REST interface for
                - report querying(utilizes underlying reporting engine)
                - user management
                - can be used with REST API v1 in parallel

        Configurable hostnames(host/system identifier) in reports
                - can take any of the sys variables(eg.$(sys.fqhost))

        When decommissioning (deleting a host) from the Mission Portal/Enterprise API,
        the public keys of the clients are also removed

        Ability to delete multiple hosts from the mission portal

        Improvements on the hub maintenance process
                - less resource intensive and configurable
                - New option for cf-hub added (-m) for Enterprise database maintenance

        Fixes on database connections problems
                - If you were seeing "connection refused because too many open connections",

                - Please update email filters

        Removed internal CFE promises from reporting

        New classes enterprise, enterprise_X, enterprise_X_Y, enterprise_X_Y_Z
    on CFEngine Enterprise, to reflect the version running. New variable
    sys.enterprise_version that holds the CFEngine Enterprise version.
    This complements the Nova classes and the sys.nova_version variable,
    which will eventually be deprecated.

        Fix file change report containing warning message as filename for new/deleted files

        File diff log (nova_diff.log) have been extended with promise handle name.

        Total compliance output in cf-agent verbose mode and promise_summary.log
        have been extended with user and cfengine internal compliance level.

        Fix software reports showing "(never)" in the "Last seen" column

        Fix "blue hosts" list being empty for clients that don't have class keys

        Sendmail is installed by default on the hub - required for emailing of reports

        32-bit hub installations no longer supported

    Created a variable update_policy.mongodb_dir, for cases where MongoDB
    should not run out of /var/cfengine/state (could grow to tens of gigabytes).

    Removed commercial_customer class, as it was unused in internal policies.
    Please use enterprise_edition instead if you used this in your policies.

    New performance report events: DBPurgeHostsAll, DBMaintenance,
    DBMaintenanceTimestampsSingleHost, DBCacheCompliance, DBReportCollectAll.

    License verification is made more robust by not relying on the last-seen
    database anymore. This means you do not need to bootstrap a client to
    verify the license. See the cf-key --install-license option.

2.2.0
    More diagnostics on report collection from cf-hub. Logging more
    useful information in cf-hub -l, measuring total collection time
    in benchmarks report, under id "ReportCollectAll".

    Fixed issue where client would show as green in the Mission Portal when no
    data was received, e.g. due to access or license error at client.
    Now correctly shows as blue in these cases.

    Greatly reduced amount of connections from cf-hub
    to localhost mongodb. Now there is one connection per
    cf-hub run (max 50), before it was three per client.

    Software and variable report now contains end-node discovery time.

    Software and patches available/status reports contain maximum 5-minute old data,
    improved from 6 hours in last release. This will only apply to clients
    that are upgraded to 2.2.0.

    Software report query from Mission Portal is much faster on larger data-sets due
    to removal of autocomplete feature.

    Upgraded mongod from version 1.8.2 to 2.0.4, which increases
    efficiency on concurrency and reduces memory usage.

    New function hostswithclass() that generates a list of hosts in a given class
    on the hub.

    The bundled failsafe.cf policy now has trustkey=false to avoid IP spoofing
    attacks in default policy


2.1.0
    New interface with interactive graphs on Nova hub.

    User management on hub.

    Allowing TAB in file diff report. Better handling
    of large diffs and attempts to diff binaries.

    Support for adding notes to all hosts and reports.

    Support for policy staging environments.

    Nova reports can be exported to file and imported manually
    using cf-report -x and cf-report -i.

    Faster collection of monitoring (vitals) data due to
    new protocol and data structure.

    Long-term storage (one year) of diff and changes reports.

    The variables report got a last-seen column. Now variables
    are stored in the hub for a longer time like classes,
    and not overwritten on every update.

    The report of reports-promises are shown in the promise repaired log
    in the Mission Portal.

    New option cf-hub --cache, recreates the cache data needed
    by the web interface.

    Only showing the last seen host name and ip address when
    listing hosts and on the host page.

    Reliability improvements, especially when querying
    the variables report.

2.0.2
    Much faster report querying.

    Allows to specify age interval when querying promise not
    kept and repaired.

    Promiser conflict identifcation.

    Built with Cfengine Community Edition 3.1.4.

2.0.1
    Fixed promise query of not kept/promise repaired logs.

1.2.0
    Windows Event Logs include output_prefix if set, and which component
    reported the event. The verbosity of event logs have been reduced
    by not including promise kept and repaired events, this can now be
    tuned with action.log_level.

    Take out network communications from total state calculation,
    as it gets counted twice.

1.1.2
    Encryption problems fixed in Community Edition.

    Built with Cfengine Community Edition 3.0.4p3.

1.1.0
    Regular expressions in file paths supported on Windows by using
    forward slash as path separator.

    CPU utilization report on Windows.
    Users logged in report on Windows.

    On the Windows cf-serverd, requests for /var/cfengine are
    translated to $(sys.workdir)\Cfengine, and path separators are
    automatically adjusted ("/" becomes "\"). This yields support for
    more platform-independent promises and allows for automatic
    copying of reports from Windows clients to the policy server.

    Scale on graphs in the Knowledge Map, and different background
    color gives more readability.

    Special functions added for accessing remote classes for distributed cooperation.

1.0.0
    Reports added to cf-report for compliance, setuid, file_changes etc.
    Added csv format also
