This release is mainly for improving compatibility with v0.12.

New Parser and Formatter API

In v0.10.57 or earlier, we use following APIs to implement Parser class.

# Parser implementation
module Fluent
  class TextParser
    # Not inherit base class
    class FooParser
      include Configurable

      # Overwrite initialize, configure and parse method

      # register this parser
      TextParser.register_template('foo', Proc.new { FooParser.new })
    end
  end
end

# Instantiate parser
parser = TextParser.new
parser.configure(conf)

New APIs are below:

# Parser implementation
module Fluent
  class TextParser
    # inherit Parser base class
    class FooParser < Parser
      # register this plugin without Proc.new trick
      Plugin.register_parser('foo', self)

      # Overwrite initialize, configure and parse method
    end
  end
end

# Instantiate parser
parser = Plugin.new_parser('foo')
parser.configure(conf)

Formatter also has same APIs. New API is consistent with Input / Output plugins. We still have old API but we recommend to use new API for new parser / formatter plugins.

Add router attribute to Input / Output

In v0.12, Input / Output plugins have router attribute for Label and Engine.emit is deprecated(Engine.emit forwards events to root_agent.emit).

v0.10.58 adds router attribute to Input / Output plugins for API compatibility with v0.12. Changing Engine.emit to router.emit has no effect on v0.10 but such plugin works on both v0.10 and v0.12 properly.

Happy logging!
