PACKAGE             : syslog-ng Premium Edition
VERSION             : 2.1.11
SUMMARY             : new stable release
DATE                : May 28, 2008


  A new stable version of syslog-ng Premium Edition (2.1.11) has been
  released. For latest fixes in the 2.1.x branch you are recommended to
  upgrade to this version.


        Tue, 27 May 2008 11:06:48 +0200

        * Fixed RPM packaging to create /var/lib/syslog-ng automatically.
        * Fixed a 100% CPU usage problem triggered by the pipe()
          destination. This is a regression in 2.1.10 and does not affect
          earlier versions.
        * Fixed hostname parsing for names that begin with numeric characters.
        * Proper handling of disk-full conditions (and any write-related
          errors); prior versions suspended writing to the failing
          destination until a SIGHUP was received. From now on syslog-ng
          reopens the given destination after time_reopen() seconds.
        * Fixed year recognition heuristics to properly handle timestamps that
          are slightly in the future at month changes. Earlier versions
          mistakenly recognized these timestamps as ones from the preceding

        Other changes:
        * Added support for specifying the name of the disk-spool directory
          on the syslog-ng command line.
        * The configuration file can use DOS-style CRLF line endings.
        * Added support for the BSDTAG macro.
        * The syslog-ng startup will not fail if the initial connection to
          the server fails; syslog-ng will try to reconnect later instead.
