What is new in syslog-ng Open Source Edition 3.24?

Version 3.24 of syslog-ng Open Source Edition includes the following main features.

The format-flat-json template function is identical to the format-json template function, but nested JSON objects are flattened in the output. For details, see "Template functions of syslog-ng OSE" in the Administration Guide.

Modify timezone using rewrite rules

You can set, fix, or guess the timezone of messages using timezone-specific rewrite rules. For details, see "Rewrite the timezone of a message" in the Administration Guide.
