One of the main highlights of the 3.0 release of Zabbix is a much awaited visual overhaul of the front-end interface.

How to Install CentOS 6 for Zabbix

The very first alpha versions of long-awaited Zabbix 3.0 were available for testers already some time ago. Now we are getting much closer to the final release of Zabbix 3.0 with the new 3.0 beta available for everyone.
