Is the App Fire Brigade version 2 compatible with Splunk 6.3?

Dear community, hello Sanford Owings,

We plan to update our Splunk landscape from 6.2.x to 6.3.
Among others, we are using the Fire Brigade version 2 App.
According to https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1632/ this App is only compatible with 6.0, 6.1 & 6.2.

Are there already plans to make this App available for the new 6.3 Splunk release?

Thank you and regards,
Guenter

It is mostly compatible with 6.3 at present. However, there has been some underlying change within the splunkd.log, and the "Bucket Lifecycle" view is not likely to work well with 6.3 until I'm able to release an update. I expect to be able to put that out by the end of the first week of October. Thanks for your patience.

Note, however, that many of the "is this index full?" questions typically answered by Fire Brigade can now be satisfied by the Distributed Management Console (built into the product). The starting page for that documentation begins here

FYI, Fire Brigade version 2 will no longer be updated (latest version is 2.0.3). The newer versions 2.0.4 and higher will now be available with the original “Fire Brigade” app on Splunkbase which was just updated to support Splunk 6.3. This is noted on the page for Fire Brigade on Splunkbase:
https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1581/

If you have any questions, ping the developer of the app @sowings

Cheers!

I've completed all of the code changes, but I've hit a snag with the apps site itself. I'll get the new version posted as soon as I can get that resolved! Thanks for your patience.
