  • The redis() destination now handles any number of command parameters.

  • The format() option of date-parser() supports lists. From now on, a
    single date-parser() instance is able to process different date formats,
    making it easy to catch on when some programs change the way they log
    information. (#2779)

  • Add relocation support for disk-buffer(). The relocate subcommand of
    dqtool can be used to move a single or multiple queue files. (#2855)

  • file(), pipe(): The time-reap() option now can be set or disabled for
    each destination separately.
    Use time-reap(0) to disable closing idle destination files. (#2798)

  • syslog-ng-ctl: Add list-files subcommand to print files present in the
    current configuration. (#2797)

  • Add global context to standalone parsers (#2876)
  • Fix heap usage after free in cfg_run_parser_with_main_context (#2884)
  • Fix g_thread_init call order issue with older glibs (#2853)
  • SNMP destination: fixing statistics format (#2854)
