VERSION             : 2.0.8
SUMMARY             : new stable release
DATE                : Jan 31, 2008


  A new stable version of syslog-ng Open Source Edition (2.0.8) has been
  released. For latest fixes in the 2.0.x branch you are recommended to
  upgrade to this version.

        * Fixed a regression in 2.0.7 that caused destination files not to
          be reopened when syslog-ng was reloaded. This causes potential
          problems with log rotation.
        * 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.

        Other changes:
        * Fixed sample configuration file for RedHat.
        * Some portability changes in loggen.
        * Added cygwin packaging files to contrib/cygwin-packaging.
