        * Fixed end-of-line marker for destination files that had no
          template() parameter.

        * Fixed a potential crash on Solaris 8 in time related functions.
        * Fixed flow-control behaviour for follow-mode source files.
        * Fixed bind error in the UNIX domain socket destination driver on
        * Added the "mark" keyword to be an alias of "mark_freq" for
          compatibility with syslog-ng 1.6.
        * Fixed message loss in destination files during configuration
          reloads if syslog-ng is heavily loaded.
        * Fixed a possible segmentation fault in the dns-cache-host() file
          parsing code for improperly formatted host files.
        * Fixed DNS cache size checking, persistent DNS cache entries were
          also counted against dns_cache_size() which might decrease cache
          space significantly when a large /etc/hosts file is in use.
        * Fixed a bug that caused the persistent DNS cache (e.g. /etc/hosts)
          to be reloaded for all name resolution requests.
        * Fixed ISO timestamp parsing for timestamps that have no
          timezone information or have a too long fraction of a second
        * Fixed possible "Insufficient buffer space" errors in the STREAMS
        * Fixed the starvation of the timer used to reap unused destination
          files, which could cause some files never to be closed under
          heavy load.
        * Fixed restoring the time stamp from disk queue files in case the
          timezone offset is negative.
        * Added a workaround for possible deadlocks on /proc/kmsg and
          user terminals, this case is still best avoided by careful user
        * Fixed program name parsing that caused problems for TAG values
          that include the '/' character. This problem was introduced by

        Other changes:
        * Added support for file sources that do not exist at startup.
        * The fsync() option was implemented.
        * Added support the "--persist-file" configuration option.
        * Added support for timestamps used by some LinkSys routers.
        * The SSL support now explicitly disables the use of SSLv2 which
          prevented the use of network traffic compression.
        * Significant performance improvements.
        * Added loggen tool to generate syslog messages at the specified
        * Added support for Solaris 10/x64
