        * This version of syslog-ng contains a fix for a possible Denial of
          Service, therefore it is strongly recommended to upgrade to this

        * Fixed the reversed field order for SQL destinations, when the
          configuration file contains an explicit list of fields.
        * Fixed a possible segmentation fault for IPv6 destinations.
        * Fixed the scope id resolution for link-local IPv6 addresses.
        * Fixed a problem in handling messages which lacked explicit timezone
          information, but the administrator specified a timezone for the
        * Fixed some minor memory leaks in configuration reloads.
        * Fail the configuration initialization for an unresolvable domain
          name, instead of falling back to
        * Fixed a segmentation fault which occurred when the timestamp of the
           incoming messages did not end with a space character (NULL pointer
           dereference). This is an easy Denial of Service possibility.
        * Corrected program name parsing in incoming messages.

        Other changes:
        * Added the --seed command line option that allows the administrator to
          seed the PRNG using a file, if the operating system does not
          provide a /dev/random device.
