Mezmo announced the general availability of the Mezmo Agent 3.6, which introduces Windows support to our Rust Agent.

The new version of the agent supports file logging on Windows, which means customers can now upgrade to an agent that runs on Rust and take advantage of many new customization options.

As part of the company name change, from LogDNA to Mezmo, the company will be changing the name of the agent to mezmo-agent. This will happen over a series of releases. Starting in 3.6, environment variables will begin with the prefix MZ, but will be backwards compatible with LOGDNA_. Starting with 3.7, "mezmo" will be used in the names of the agent's binaries and yaml files. The "logdna" name will be backwards compatible until version 4.0, when we will fully remove all references to "LOGDNA_" and "logdna".

After the release of Agent 3.6, Mezmo will remove the “latest” and “stable” tags from the docker images.

Immediately going forward, Mezmo will use a semantic versioning scheme (MM.mm.pp). Minor and patch releases will happen on an ongoing basis. Minor versions will be for adding functionality in a backwards compatible manner; patch versions will be for making backwards compatible bug fixes.

Major releases will happen when there is a breaking change (for instance, the shift from “logdna” to “mezmo” in 4.0 is a breaking change). After a major release, the previous major version will receive security updates for the next year, but not updates containing new features or general bug fixes.

To bring the agent into this support matrix, Mezmo will be discontinuing support of agents that are below version 3.6 starting with the release of 4.0. These agents will still be able to send logs to our service and logs will be ingested normally, but these versions of the agent will no longer be updated for any reason.
