rsyslog 8.40.0 (v8-stable) released

Today, we release rsyslog 8.40.0.

This release brings a number of changes and fixes for e.g. the openssl driver, imfile, imsolaris and many more.

Noteworthy are also the changes to the build system and the enhancement to CI.

For more information, please check out the Changelog below.

We also released version 1.3.0 of librelp. This is also mostly a bugfixing release and not a hard requirement for rsyslog 8.40.0, but is recommended if you encounter reconnect issues
