Logstash 1.5.6

Release Notes

Bug Fixes:

  • This release bundles a new version of JRuby - [1.7.23], which fixes a memory leak issue reported on Windows when using the file input ([#3754]).
  • File Input: Properly release file handles for older files which allows users to delete them ([#31]).
  • Clean up resource usage when Logstash is restarted with File input. Previously, this would cause Logstash to grab on to duplicate file handles ([#77]).
