Dear syslog-ng users,

I'm proud to announce that syslog-ng 2.0rc1 has been released. The new
release is based on a completely rewritten code base, and aims to be a
drop-in replacement for syslog-ng 1.6.x. 

Highlights over 1.6.x:
- Support for extended timestamps with year, timezone information and
subsecond granularity.
- Flow control support: enabling flow control end-to-end, on the whole
message path leaves TCP connection breaks the only source of message
- Better performance: various data structures and algorithms have been
- IPv6 and multicast support.
- and more...

This release has already been tested in production environment, with
high performance demands. 

Here is a list of user-visible changes since 1.9.11:

        Some minor new features:
        * Added LEVEL_NUM and FACILITY_NUM macros.
        * Added optional() support for destination files to avoid flooding
          the log if a given destination cannot be opened.

        * Fixed priority range filter evaluation.
        * Portability fixes for various OSs (Solaris, AIX and HP-UX) and
          architectures (64bit CPUs)
        * In the case of a broken connection don't reconnect immediately,
          but wait some time specified by time_reopen() to match 1.6.x
        * Fixed a reproducible segmentation fault in UNIX domain socket
        * Fixed dir_group() handling.

        Other changes:
        * Documentation updates.
