Email+ keeps creashing

The Email+ app keeps crashing with the error bellow. After restarting Seq the problem goes away, but after a while it crashes again. System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'Serilog.Formatting.Compact.Reader, Version=1.0.3.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=24c2f752a8e58a10' or one of its dependencies.

To enable assembly bind failure logging, set the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog] (DWORD) to 1. Note: There is some performance penalty associated with assembly bind failure logging. To turn this feature off, remove the registry value [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Fusion!EnableLog].

Connection Timing Out

Hi, I have an SEQ instance that has been up for over 200 days and we are now getting connection timeouts. It's running in Kubernetes in a pod. I have tried proxying directly to the container and even running curl while execed into the container, however the result is the same, a timeout after a while. This is not reflected in the logs: ──────────────────────────────────────── Seq ♦ Machine data, for humans. ─────────── © 2019 Datalust Pty Ltd ──── Running as server; press Ctrl+C to exit.
