rsyslog 5.9.6 (v5-beta) released

This is the first beta version of the 5.9 rsyslog branch. It primarily contains bug fixes and some enhancements over 5.9.5. Most important ones are support for inotify in imfile as well as additional  statistics counters. Note that 5.9.5 was made available in January 2012 and did not receive many bug reports. So we plan to put 5.9.6 on an expedited beta track, which hopefully will lead soon to a new v5-stable. As such, testing and feedback is most appreciated.





As always, feedback is appreciated.

Best regards,
Florian Riedl
