We have just released 8.1.3 of the v8-devel branch.
This release contains further performance improvements. Note that both the output module interface and strgen interface have been changed and (some) modules may need to be modified. For the v8 supported rsyslog provided modules this has already be done (see v8 compatibility document for a list of supported modules). This release also detects failed actions more precisely. Finally, there are a couple of bug fixes in this release.
Note that this release can be considered a "normal" devel version, with moderate risk associated to it. Experience in the past weeks suggest so. Special thanks to Pavel Levshin for all his work and tests. Still note that there is a considerably higher risk running the devel version than the stable one.
Feedback is *very much* appreciated.
