Important changes since beta.1

Here are the new features since the last Graylog v2.1 beta release:

You can now run the REST API and Web Interface on the same port

We got a lot of feedback regarding the requirement of different ports for the REST API and the Graylog Web Interface when we released v2.0. The most common comment was, that this can be hard to deploy and challenging when running with proxies or load balancers.

We listened and now you can run the REST API and Web Interface on the same port. :)

Message fields are now trimmed by default

Graylog is now removing all whitespaces around message field values by default. Sometimes you’ll have a whitespace before or after a value that is really hard to see (or even invisible) in the web interface. Trying to, for example, write stream rules against such a field can be really annoying because you simply do not expect the whitespace to be there. This is why we changed this behaviour.

This also means that you might see different behavior of stream, extractor or pipeline rules that are now now working against message field without the whitespace. Check if this might be the case if your rules behave weird after the upgrade.

We do not expect a lot of users to be affected by this because it always was a (very annoying) edge case.
