Logstash 5.4.0 Release Notesedit

  • The persistent queues feature is generally available (GA) now. The beta tag has been removed.
  • The dissect filter is now bundled in the Logstash artifact.
  • Updated the line and multiline codecs to be threadsafe when used with inputs.
  • Logstash’s plugin manager now works when an HTTP proxy is used (Issue 6619, Issue 6528).
  • On Windows deployments, we now search for the java executable in %PATH% which works well for the latest JDK 8 updates.
  • Fixed an issue where the JVM max heap size stats were reported incorrectly in the stats API (Issue 6608).
  • Fixed an issue where Logstash would crash when using conditionals on a nested JSON field (Issue 6522).
