Today, we release rsyslog 8.31. This is probably one of the biggest releases in the past couple of years. While it also offers great new functionality, what really important about it is the focus on further improved software quality. For a more detailed description, please read Rainer’s blog post. Detailed information about the huge list of changes is available in the changelog.
The packages have received some notable changes as well. First off, we were able to implement the Redis output module as a separate package on Ubuntu 14.04 and newer. Also there was a dependency change for the ommongo module, thus it is now only available on Ubuntu 16.04 or newer, but not on CentOS/RHEL anymore. Platform restrictions are unavoidable right now due to dependency availability.
As always, feedback is appreciated.
