The rocket-fast system for log processing

rsyslog 8.2.2 (v8-stable) released

We have just released 8.2.2 of the v8-stable branch.

This release allows to build the missing (contributed) modules under v8. Please note, that most of these modules did not yet receive real testing as we don’t have the necessary environments. We depend on users submitting error reports and helping out to iron out any issues that may arise.

Additionaly, the separated documentation is available as a tarball download on the download page.



As always, feedback is appreciated.

Best regards,
Florian Riedl
