Logstash 2.3.2 Released

Heya! Just a quick update to announce that Logstash version 2.3.2 has been released

Bugs Fixed In Logstash Core

  • Added reload support to the init script so you can do service logstash reload
  • The original intent of "%{foo}" syntax was to always produce a string, but the previous 2.x and 1.5.x versions returned float (underlying value) and starting in release 2.3.0, Logstash returned the underlying value type for field references. In 2.3.2 we are returning back to the 2.x and 1.5.x behavior of returning float since this behavior breaks compatibility in a minor release (#5114).
  • Fixed use of KILL_ON_STOP_TIMEOUT variable in init scripts which allows Logstash to force stop (#4991).
  • Windows: Retrieve JAVA_HOME from windows symlink (#4913)

Bugs Fixed In Plugins


  • Beats: Fixed an issue when time based flush feature was used with multiline codec (#73).
  • HTTP Poller: Fix ssl_certificate_validation option to actually let you disable cert validation (#48).


  • XML: Added setting to disable forcing single values to be added in arrays (#27)


  • Redis: Fixed a flood of runtime warnings which was logged when this output was used (#26).
