Progress toward Elastic Common Schema (ECS)edit

In this release, we continued our efforts towards Elastic Common Schema (ECS):

Check out our progress toward ECS compatibility in github issue #11635.

Performance improvements and notable issues fixededit

  • Updated Bundler to latest version #13141

    • Bundler 2.2.26 brings along improvements and bug fixes for Logstash’s dependency resolution
    • We plan to continue being up-to-date with latest Bundler and/or RubyGems in the future
  • We’ve added a new developer-only command line flag (--enable-local-plugin-development) to facilitate local plugin development. This flag enables developers to update their local Gemfile without running into issues caused by a frozen lockfile. End users should not need this flag.
  • Fixed the shutdown error with the usage of external GeoIP database
