PACKAGE             : syslog-ng
VERSION             : 2.1beta2
SUMMARY             : new stable release
DATE                : Jun 30, 2008


  A new stable version of syslog-ng Open Source Edition (2.1beta2) has been
  released. For latest fixes in the 2.1.x branch you are recommended to
  upgrade to this version.

        * Create /var/lib/syslog-ng directory from RPM packages.
        * Fixed a 100% CPU usage problem triggered by the pipe()
          destination. This is a regression in 2.1beta1 and does not affect
          earlier versions.
        * Removed test code that injected "Connection timed out" errors into
          local file writes.
        * Set the current directory to the root once syslog-ng daemonized
        * Fixed the $PID macro to only extract information from the syslog
          message header and not from the message contents.

        Other changes:
        * Instead of using O_APPEND for file writes, add an lseek before
          writing which performs much better with the NFS client in BSD
        * Added support for suppressing duplicate messages. This feature was
          contributed by Chris Packham.
        * The default linking mode is changed to dynamic linking, as static
          linking is more difficult for users to cope with. Those who
          use NFS mounted /usr on machines where syslog-ng runs on will
          probably need to explicitly ask for the previous behaviour.
