What's new in this version?
This version is coming with few improvement and bug fixes.

Here is the changelog of version 2.6:
  • Add version.json, menu.json and friends.json generation to fix issue #25
  • Check is file is executable (instead of existing) to define if it should be executed
    Warning: a new perl dependency has been added: File::Which
  • Generate empty.rrd at each request to fix issue #23
  • Generate empty.rrd at each start workaround for issue #23 when using an external web server
    Note: empty.rrd need to be generated each time a static data need to be drawn into a graph. The embedded server does that. With external server, it is not possible. Restarting RPI-Monitor periodically will improve the accuracy but not fix the bug.
  • Improve shellinabox management <IP>/shellinabox forwards to https://<IP>:4200
  • Add RPi-Monitor Interactive Configuration Helper
