We have just released rsyslog 5.6.1, the new v5-stable.
This update addresses the TLS bug, that has been bothering a lot of users lately. It stops rsyslog from looping, thus disabling functionality and bearing the risk of unresponsiveness of the whole system. More details about this issue can be found here:
Other issues have been fixed for imptcp, failing testbench, segfault on empty templates and failed compile. For more detailed information, please review the ChangeLog.
We strongly recommend to use this release if you are using (or planning to use) syslog with TLS enabled.
As always, feedback is appreciated.
