Hello everybody,

as promised earlier this week, I have packaged and uploaded version 5.3.0. This
feature release includes a couple of new features, most importantly the eagerly
awaited "write_riemann" plugin, which allows you to send data to Riemann, an
open-source stream aggregation and monitoring system.

The NetApp plugin can now report a bunch of new metrics. Support for POST
requests has been added to the cURL* plugins, which allows to send SOAP
requests, for example. A thread-pool for write threads and the new
"CreateFilesAsync" option in the RRDtool and RRDCacheD plugins improves
throughput on large scale servers. Other changes are listed in the ChangeLog

This release marks the "end of live" of the 5.1 branch. New bugfixes will be
applied to 5.2 and 5.3.


The new version is available in source-code form from collectd's
download page. The direct download links are:

  * collectd: The "Include" statements can now be limited to include

  * collectd: Dispatches / writes are now handled by a thread pool. This
    improves reliability and throughput for instances configured to act
    as a "server". Thanks to Sebastian Harl and Dan Fandrich for
    reviewing this change and fixing bugs.
  * aggregation plugin: Selection of value lists is now possible using
    regular expressions. Parts of the identifier of the resulting metric
    can now be set via the configuration file.

  * curl* plugins: Support for POST requests and custom request headers
    has been added. Thanks to Dan Fandrich for his patch.

    to Sebastian Harl for his patches.
