Hi everybody,

I've packed and published new versions of the 4.7 and 4.8 versions of
collectd, the system statistics collection daemon. The most sever fix
from my point of view is a memory leak in the implementation of the
LISTVAL command.

This will be the last release of the 4.7 line of versions because
version 4.9 will be released on Monday. This means that from this point
on no more bugfixes will be applied to the 4.7 branch.


Source tarballs are available from collectd's homepage. The direct
download links are:

  Version 4.8.2:
