We have now made available daily builds for rsyslog. This daily build consists of rsyslog and all supporting libraries. That means, Adiscon provides the bleeding edge of rsyslog.
The daily build stems from the rsyslog master branch and thus has all new features, changes and fixes nearly as soon as they are developed. This also means, that functionality might potentially be unstable. Please, use at your own risk!
With daily builds came some changes to build naming. rsyslog daily builds will identify themselves like this: rsyslogd 220.127.116.11e7f12a2c04. As before, the first three digits determine the version that is currently on schedule for the next release. The 12 digit string represents the git checkout that has been used for the build. This will help with troubleshooting issues with the build. This only applies to daily builds.
Daily builds are currently also available for Ubuntu (vivid, trusty, precise, utopic) as package.
Note: you must replace “v8-stable” in these instructions with “v8-devel” to use the daily packages!
Note: source tarballs are currently not available because we changed the daily build environment. We need someone who wants to maintain those parts of the system responsible for the daily tarballs. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in that.
