I have released a new maintenance release from the syslog-ng 1.6.x
branch, with version number 1.6.9.

The list of user-visible changes is below. The most important change is
probably the added workaround for lose-a-message when the TCP connection
is broken.

The updated version can be found on the syslog-ng homepage at:

News for the 1.6.9 release
        Wed, 23 Nov 2005 09:52:30 +0100

        * Fixed usertty destination, names in utmp records are not NUL
          terminated. This might cause some logged in users not to be found.
        * Fixed timezone calculation during daylight saving.
        * Fixed a warning message in file destinations which indicated that
          permissions would be changed even if no permission change was
        * Added a workaround for lose-one-message when connection is broken.
        * Owner and group information on files is set independently, so one can
          work while the other fails, this fixes the behaviour when
          syslog-ng is running as non-root and only the group information is
        * Documentation updates.
        * Updated bundled libol to 0.3.17
