Today, we release rsyslog 8.2008.0. This release provides mostly bugfixes for rsyslog.
Again, there are a lot of fixes and changes. Notably is the addition of the “max sessions” parameter in imptcp and fixes for impcap, the gnutls driver and imudp.
The rsyslog project also no longer provides its own systemd service file. Since distros nowadays have very different service files, it seems no longer useful to provide a “generic” example file.
In addition to rsyslog, we also released librelp 1.7.0 with its own set of changes.
Note: Binary packages will be updated a bit later. There will be a separate announcement when they are ready.
librelp release notice:
As always, feedback is appreciated.
