Now scaling better with thousands of files

Version 1.4.803 has been released today.
The im_file module has been enhanced so that it deals better with thousands of files and consumes less CPU. It will automatically retry files which gave a read error earlier instead of stopping completely. The im_msvistalog module now pulls all application logs by default in addition to the system logs. There were several other enhancements and bug fixes, the changelog is available in the source tarball.

Conditional buffering in 1.4.764

Version 1.4.764 has been released.
size(), replace() and substr() functions are now available for string manipulation. Also added buffer_size() and buffer_count() functions to the pm_buffer module. This allows conditional buffering, see the Explicit drop section in the reference manual and this mailing list post about how this can be used.
Some other issues and bugs were fixed, details are in the ChangeLog.

More log rotation

nxlog v1.4.712 has been released.
The most notable addition in this release is a new extension module xm_fileop which adds support for file operations. This allows more sophisticated log rotation which can be used also for nxlog's own logs.
See the full ChangeLog in the sources for the list of all enhancements and fixes included in this release.
