We’re excited to announce significant enhancements to the rsyslog website, designed to make your experience more efficient and enjoyable. Our primary focus has been on the documentation presentation, and we’ve implemented a range of upgrades across the site to reflect this.

Mobile-Friendly and Ad-Free: Embracing modern web standards, we’ve rolled out a new mobile-friendly theme. This ensures that you can access our content seamlessly on any device. Additionally, we’ve significantly reduced the number of ads, especially in the documentation section, to provide a cleaner, more focused browsing experience.

Streamlined Documentation: Acknowledging the evolution of technology, we’ve retired the outdated v5 and v7 documentation. This decision was made to streamline the content and focus on what’s most relevant for our users today. For those rare instances where this older documentation is needed, it’s still accessible through the operating system packages (deb and rpm) and our git repository.

Focused and Clear Documentation: To avoid confusion, we’re considering consolidating our documentation into a single, daily stable set. This will ensure that users have access to the most current and relevant information without the clutter of multiple versions.

Revamped Blog Section: The blog section has undergone a transformation. Now more dynamic and news-oriented, it reflects the ongoing developments in the rsyslog community. We’re also exploring the idea of infusing our homepage with fresh blog content, offering a real-time glimpse into the latest updates and insights.

We believe these changes will significantly enhance your experience on the rsyslog site. Your feedback is invaluable to us, and we encourage you to share your thoughts as we continue to improve.
