This change implements the long awaited Dashboard Designer. With this feature users can edit existing dashboards, create new ones and provide their dashboards to other users just like it can be done with the views.

Another nice feature is the formalized context we introduced for views and dashboards. With this concept it is possible to create a host specific dashboard once and open it for several different hosts. You can create a "Oracle Database dashboard" once which can show you the state of a single database server. The name of the database server (context: hostname) of your choice can be provided when accessing the dashboard to "instanciate" such a dashboard.

Dashboards edited by users are saved in var/check_mk/web/USER/user_dashboards.mk just like edited views are now saved in var/check_mk/web/USER/user_views.mk. The views saved by a user before this release which are stored in var/check_mk/web/USER/views.mk will be migrated automatically once the user edits it's first view. From this time the new edited views will be read/written from/to the new file.

For details take a look at the dashboard documentation.
