	* Fixed the configure script to automatically detect whether
	  libnet is installed and disable spoof-source support if it
	  is not.
	* Fixed the processing of the global log_fifo_size() option, in some
	  cases the global option did not have any effect.
	* Fixed possible blocking on /proc/kmsg during boot, when a great
          number of kernel messages are generated.
	* Fixed a possible segfault during the syslog-ng exit procedure,
	  that can be triggered by stopping a syslog-ng instance after it
	  has been reloaded at least once.

	Other changes:
	* Increased the default value of max-connections to 256 for UNIX
	  stream sources.
	* Added support for PIX timestamps that include year information.
	* Added support for fractions of a second information in BSD
          timestamps generated by certain Cisco devices.
