- Removed support for Chef Solo. Since this cookbook now supports Chef 12+ only it makes far more sense to use Chef Zero (local mode) if a Chef server is not available.

111 112
- Breaking change: The file_input LWRP has been updated to be a Chef 12.5 custom_resource, with backwards compatibility to all Chef 12.x released provided by compat_resource. Additionally the 'source' and 'cookbook' attributes in the file_input resource have been renamed to 'template_source' and 'cookbook_source' to prevent failures.
- Helpers for determining the service provider on Ubuntu have been removed since Chef 12 does the right thing with Init, Upstart, and systemd.

- rsyslog::client no longer fails if there are no servers to forward logs to. Instead forwarding isn't configuring and a warning is written to the chef client log

- 49-relp.conf now properly uses the list of servers discovered in the client recipe
- Fixed a typo that prevented file-input.conf from properly templating
- Added allow_non_local attribute to allow non-local messages. This defaults to false, which preserves the previous functionality

- Properly drop permissions on Ubuntu systems to syslog/syslog. Introduces 2 new attributes to control the user/group: priv_user and priv_group
- Remove logging to /dev/xconsole in 50-default.conf on Ubuntu systems. This is generally not something you'd want to do and produces error messages at startup.
