Logstash 2.0.0 beta3 released

Quick update to announce beta3 release for Logstash 2.0.0. Since we released beta2 last week, we found two important defects which are resolved in this release.

IMPORTANT: This is a beta release and is intended for testing purposes only. There is no guarantee that Logstash 2.0.0-beta3 will be compatible with Logstash 2.0.0 GA.

Bug Fixes

  • JSON issues: In beta2, we updated the JSON serialization/deserialization library used in Logstash. A bug in this library caused the Grok filter and Elasticsearch output to serialize JSON string values incorrectly. Issue was fixed upstream and Logstash updated with the new version (#4055).
  • HTTP Output: A memory leak has been fixed in this output when HTTP requests were made asynchronously (#24)


Many thanks to users who tried beta2 and provided us feedback! As always, your input is very valuable. Head to our downloads page and give it a try! If you find issues you can start a topic in our forum or create an issue.
