Happy New Year from all of us at Datalust! 🥳
A new year, a fresh release schedule: we've decided to reorganize our release plans for 2020, and bring forward some fixes into a maintenance release, 5.1.3364, which you can now download from the Seq website and from
datalust/seq on Docker Hub.
Full release notes can be found in the
5.1.3364 milestone on GitHub.
- The Seq Windows service would sometimes not start automatically upon reboot because of missing service dependencies; this has now been fixed
- Searches/queries with
@Timestampcomparison subexpressions no longer require exponential time to compile
- Evaluation of complex
likecomparison subexpressions no longer backtrack, avoiding timeouts and server resource consumption
- When using the "Search FROM/TO timestamp" shortcut, setting one timestamp no longer clears the other
- Seq Apps can now be installed from feedz.io NuGet feeds
- The idle session timeout for new installs will now default to 48 hours instead of no timeout
- We fixed an internal server error that was triggered by scrolling through search results based on
- In the signal editor, removing a filter from a signal no longer triggers edit mode for the next listed filter
- The retention policy editor now defaults new policies to 30 days rather than zero, and uses the placeholder All events instead of a blank item to indicate that no filter will apply to the policy
- Hovering over the title of a truncated item in the signal bar now shows the full title in a tooltip
- A bug causing startup failures after an unclean shutdown was fixed
Today's maintenance release is an in-place update: all you need to do to apply it is run the MSI (on Windows), or re-launch the Docker container. Please drop us a line via email@example.com if you have questions or need any help with the upgrade process.
With the team hard at work on the next major Seq release, we have a huge year planned, and a lot more to write about in the coming weeks and months. Until then, happy logging!
