Graylog Monthly Roundup – February 3, 2016
Graylog v2.0 Alpha Released
This is the first time we’ve released such an early alpha version of a Graylog release - we just couldn't wait to get it out into the wild for you to start using and testing.
On the surface, many things will look and feel the same in Graylog. However, we have built powerful new functionality that will be the foundation of Graylog as the leading open source log management platform for 2016 and beyond. We hope you continue to join us in this journey.
Help us with testing and get an early peak at some of the brand new features and capabilities.

Graylog user Christiaan van Tienhoven explains how his team uses Graylog to monitor the success or failure of Puppet runs, and how they implemented alert handling on the Sensu platform to address the problem of alert fatigue.
