PACKAGE             : syslog-ng Agent for Windows
VERSION             : 3.0.4
SUMMARY             : new stable release
DATE                : Aug 13, 2009


  A new stable version of syslog-ng Agent for Windows (3.0.4) has been
  released. For latest fixes in the 3.0.x branch you are recommended to
  upgrade to this version.


	* It is possible to specify the configuration of the agent in an XML
	  file when installing the agent, and also when starting the agent.
	  See the documentation of the agent in the upcoming version of The
	  syslog-ng 3.0 Administrator Guide for details on the format of
	  the XML file.
	* If the agent loses the connection to the logserver and the
	  reconnection fails, it will send an eventlog message only once in
	  every ten minutes. The successful reconnection attempt is also logged.
	* Decreased the load caused by the agent on Windows 2008 and 2003
	* In some situations, the agent did not properly start because of a
	  deadlock. This has been corrected.
	* When starting the agent in service mode, command-line parameters
	  were not processed correctly. This has been corrected.
	* Trying to register the syslog-ng agent service from the command line
	  failed in some cases if the path to the syslog-ng-agent.exe file
	  contained whitespace characters. This has been corrected.

        Eventlog sources:
	* If a log file is corrupt, the agent will stop processing the event
	  source. A log message is sent directly to the logserver to notify
	  about the error ('Eventlog file is corrupt').

        Configuration snap-in:
        * The Previous Settings and Next Settings buttons were not functioning
	  properly and have been disabled.

	* Installing the agent from a domain controller using the .msi installer
	  failed in certain situations. This has been corrected.
	* The .msi installer does not install the MMC configuration snap-in of
	  the agent, therefore does not require .NET to be installed on the
	* Uninstalling the agent on 64-bit systems did not correctly remove
	  every file. This has been corrected.


        * When upgrading a machine running version 3.0.3 in standalone mode,
          run the .exe installer and verify that the displayed information
          is correct.
        * When upgrading a machine running version 3.0.3 in domain mode, follow
          the steps described in section 'Installing the syslog-ng agent on the
          hosts of a domain' of the documentation. The system will automatically
          recognize that the new package will update the syslog-ng Agent for
          Windows version 3.0.4 package.
