rsyslog 8.37.0 (v8-stable) released

Today, we release rsyslog 8.37.0.

This release has a lot of smaller changes and fixes. They mostly revolve around general improvements in terms of error output and handling. There were also several enhancements for modules like ommail, omfile, imjournal and imrelp.

Notably is the work that went into the refactoring of the testbench, with newly enhanced plumbing and re-writing of most of the existing tests for better overview and easier test development.

For more details, please check out the Changelog below.

There were also updated dependencies. The new release requires librelp 1.2.17 and the packages have the most current version of librdkafka statically linked.

rsyslog 8.36.0 (v8-stable) released

Today, we release rsyslog 8.36.0.

The biggest enhancement is that rsyslog now provides support for opennssl for encryption in addition to the existing gnutls driver. For the packages there will be an additional package called rsyslog-openssl, while self-building users can enable this by running the configure with –enable-openssl. Openssl support is currently still experimental, but will become the preferred TLS driver. Feedback about this is especially appreciated.

Some time in the future, we will also retire support for liblogging-stdlog, as we suspected it is never used in practice. The plan is to disable use of liblogging-stdlog by default during configure. So users (and distros!) can still opt-in to have it enabled if they desire. A couple of releases later, we want to completely remove the functionality, except if there has desire been shown in the meantime which justifies to keep liblogging-stdlog.

There were also a lot of bugfixes added to this release, so please make sure to read the changelog.

rsyslog 8.35.0 (v8-stable) released

Today, we release rsyslog 8.35.0. Apart from the usual fixes and small encancements, this release features extensive rework to accomodate oversized messages.

In the past, message that were bigger than defined by maxmessagesize were not handled correctly, though in most cases this was not really noticable. This is now taken care of and there are now several modes that can be defined to deal with such a case.
