+3.3.5.90 (3.3.6 Release Candidate)
+ Tue, 03 Jul 2012 18:00:00 +0200
+
+ Highlights
+ ==========
+
+ This release is a bug-fix release mostly, with a few minor -
+ yet useful - feature enhancements. The most important one is
+ that the patched ivykis syslog-ng 3.3 shipped with until now
+ is no more. We build against upstream ivykis now (still
+ included for convenience, though).
+
+ Other highlights include much improved systemd support, and an
+ enhancement to the @include feature, and many bugfixes. See
+ below for more information!
+
+ Features
+ ========
+
+ * The system() source automatically detects systemd, and
+ defines the proper log socket accordingly. If the system()
+ source is not used, a workaround to use the systemd supplied
+ log socket instead of /dev/log was applied. This kicks in if
+ syslog-ng is running under systemd, and its config version
+ is 3.4 or less.
+
+ * The @include statement now accepts globs, allowing one to
+ limit what gets included, and limit it to files matching
+ "*.conf", for example.
+
+ Bugfixes
+ ========
+
+ * When the supervisor receives a SIGHUP, it will not terminate
+ anymore, but ignore it.
+
+ * The fsync(yes) functionality was restored, and will now do
+ what it is supposed to do.
+
+ * A memory corruption was fixed in the DNS cache when used in
+ threaded mode and dns-cache-hosts() is used.
+
+ * The program() destination now correctly closes the standard
+ input of the running program when syslog-ng is being
+ reloaded (as opposed to only sending a signal).
+
+ * Incorrect encoding of data caused UDP and unix-dgram()
+ receives to be erroneously closed, so no further data would
+ be received. This has been fixed. Incorrect encoding of
+ incoming data causes the connection for connection oriented
+ transports (like tcp() and unix-stream()) to be closed, but
+ the same condition is ignored for datagram oriented
+ transports (like udp() or unix-dgram()).
+
+ * Fixed a possible NULL dereference in patterndb, when an
+ action was used without a context-scope.
+
+ Other changes
+ =============
+
+ * On systems that have utmpx(5), syslog-ng will prefer and use
+ that over the older utmp(5). This means that there is no
+ more patching needed for systems like FreeBSD 9, which only
+ support utmpx.
+
+ Credits
+ =======
+
+ syslog-ng is developed as a community project, and as such it
+ relies on volunteers to do the work necessarily to produce
+ syslog-ng.
+
+ Reporting bugs, testing changes, writing code or simply
+ providing feedback are all important contributions, so please
+ if you are a user of syslog-ng, contribute.
