Use embedded perl to create complex log processing rules

Version 2.0.926 of nxlog community edition has been released. The most notable feature addition in this release is the xm_perl module which allows you to create complex log processing rules.

While the nxlog config language is already a powerful framework, it is not a full-featured programming language. The xm_perl module makes it possible to execute perl code and process event data using the perl language via a built-in perl interpreter. Now you can use thousands of available perl modules from CPAN or some other existing perl code directly from nxlog without the need to pipe data to external perl scripts.
There have been several other bug fixes and improvements, see the Changelog in the package.
