rsyslog 8.29.0 (v8-stable) released

We have released rsyslog 8.29.0.

This release features a number of changes. E.g. imptcp now has an experimental parameter for multiline messages, and new statistics counters.

Most notably though, is the improved error reporting in the rsyslog core and in several modules like imtcp, imptcp, omfwd and the core modules. There is also an article available about the improved/enhanced error reporting:

If you have questions or feedback in relation to the article and/or debug output, please let us know or leave a comment below the article.

Other than that, the new version provides quite a number of bugfixes.
