        * Fixed the reception of empty messages received using the syslog
          driver in RFC5424 format, syslog-ng didn't accept well formed
          messages that lacked the message portion.
        * Fixed the handling of empty lines when sending them out using
          the syslog() driver. The output format lacked a space before
          the message portion.
        * The flow-control flag was erroneously enabled if any of the log
          statements contained either "final" or "fallback".
        * Fixed a possible 100% CPU usage in case an udp destination went
        * Fixed a FreeBSD init script problem that caused syslog-ng not to
          start up properly on boot.
        * Fixed the default value of follow_freq() on FreeBSD's kernel
          source /dev/klog.
        * Fixed a possible segfault in SIGHUP processing if an included file
          contains a syntax error.
        * Fixed the SQL destination to avoid dropping the output queue in
          case a HUP was received and no disk buffer is configured.
        * Fixed rewrite processing, in some cases a rewritten value could
          be propagated to wrong branches in the log processing tree.
        * Fixed escaped structured data processing in RFC 5424 messages.
        * logcat and lgstool asked the passphrase protecting the private key
          multiple times. This behaviour has been fixed.
        * Previously if the SQL INSERT statement failed for a log message,
          syslog-ng repeated the operation indefinitely in the hope that the
          error would be interim.  This has been changed to drop the
          offending log message after being tried 3 times to avoid clogging
          the SQL destination.
        * The incoming TCP connection is dropped in case character encoding
          problems are encountered.
        * Fixed CRL validation in "lgstool validate".
        * Fixed command line processing problems in lgstool that caused
          lgstool to exit abnormally in case of syntactically incorrect
          parameters were specified.

        Installer / init script:
        * The .run installer changes service registration, it now sets
          syslog-ng to automatic restart mode by passing the -R argument to
        * Fixed svcadm refresh problem in the Solaris 10 svc method script,
          which didn't successfully reload syslog-ng previously.
