        * This version of syslog-ng fixes a bug in enforcing the 
          max-connections() limit for various stream-like sources 
          (unix-stream and tcp). Previously this limit was not enforced, 
          thus production environments may use an inadequate value. 
          Validate your max-connection() settings before upgrading 
          and check your logs for rejected connections.

        * Fixed configuration parsing of the localport() and port() parameters.
        * Fixed template_escape() for non-ASCII characters.
        * Fixed facility() filter evaluation problems.
        * Fixed a possible segmentation fault during shutdown, when pending
          messages were still present in the destination queue of a
          flow-controlled destination.
        * Fixed sign of timezone when parsed from the configuration file.
        * Fixed counting the number of established connections, the value
          used when comparing against the max-connections() parameter.

        * Added support for rotated source files.
        * Added support for perl-like regexp flags to make it possible to
          specify case-insensitive regular expressions.
