We have just released rsyslog 5.5.7, the new v5-beta.
This is a new beta version, scheduled to replace the current stable hopefully soon. It has some bugfixes over 5.5.6, and also introduces a new module, omuxsock, that provides the ability to natively write to Unix domain sockets. Feedback on this version is highly appreciated. We would like to promote it to stable by mid to end September if we do not hear anything that prevents us from doing so.
See ChangeLog for more details.
As always, feedback is appreciated.
