rsyslog version numbering change

Rsyslog used a version number scheme of 8.<real-version>.0 where we incremented <real-version> every 6 weeks with each release. The 8 and 0 are constant (well, the 0 could change to 1 with a very important patch, but in practice we have only done this once). While this scheme has worked pretty well since we introduced it, we […]

New Logo Selected

The rsyslog community selected a new logo! The winner is logo 1, also shown here to the right.

Daily builds are what the scheduled v8-devel builds were under the previous release paradigm. Consequently, the […]

We have made this move after reflecting the changes in user participation in open source development as well […]

Introducing the rsyslog config builder tool

Wouldn’t it be great if we had an interactive tool that permitted it novices to build complex rsyslog configurations interactively? Without any need to understand the inner workings or even terminology? Indeed, that would not only be great, but in our opinion also remove a lot of pressure that we have on rsyslog’s documentation part. In […]

rsyslog 8.2.0 (v8-stable) released

This is the first release of the greatly improved version 8 of rsyslog. Large parts of the core engine have been rewritten in order to support even greater performance and newly things like global variable support in RainerScript. The new engine is the foundation for the next couple of years of rsyslog technology. As another […]
