It was a nice run, but logstash-forwarder is dead.  In its place comes filebeat, a lightweight (still Java-free and written in Go) log file shipper that is actually supported by Elastic.

If you’re coming from logstash-forwarder, Elastic provides a migration guide.

We hope to migrate our own stuff to filebeat soon, which will certainly yield more postings.  Stay tuned!
