General
=======

Pluggable polling methods
-------------------------

lib/nbsocket.py uses pluggable polling method. In addition
to the classic select(), poll() and epoll() methods are implemented.
Polling method is set into etc/noc.conf:[main]/polling_method configuration
variable.

Service Activation
==================

New profiles
------------

* H3C.VRP

New scripts
-----------

* HP.ProCurve9xxx.get_arp
* HP.ProCurve9xxx.get_fqdn
* HP.ProCurve9xxx.get_interfaces
* HP.ProCurve9xxx.get_spanning_tree
* Huawei.VRP.get_interface_status
* Juniper.JUNOS.get_interfaces
* OS.FreeBSD.get_vlans
* Zyxel.ZyNOS.add_vlan
* Zyxel.ZyNOS.remove_vlan

New interfaces
--------------

API enhancements
----------------
* command_exit works properly

Topology Discovery
------------------
New method: Foundry Discovery Protocol (FDP)

debug-script enhancements
-------------------------

* Parallel execution on several management objects
* Script results are dumped at the end of log

Pure-python telnet and ssh clients implementation
-------------------------------------------------
pure-Python telnet and ssh2 clients are implemented. PTYs are no longer needed
for noc-activator. CLI session limit can be significantly increased as result.

Cisco Catalyst clusters support

Catalyst cluster members can be set up as separate management objects
using /cluster:<id>/ _Path_.

UI improvements
---------------

* Show only used device profiles into Management Object's filter.
* Show platform and model in management objects list.
