VERSION             : 3.0.7
SUMMARY             : new stable release
DATE                : Jan 26, 2010


  A new stable version of syslog-ng Agent for Windows (3.0.7) has been
  released. For latest fixes in the 3.0.x branch you are recommended to
  upgrade to this version.

	* The syslog-ng Agent for Windows application now adds the version
	  number to its configuration stored in the registry. This will help
	  to avoid problems during later upgrades to future versions, e.g., to
	  3.1. Upgrading to syslog-ng Agent version 3.1 will be supported only
	  from syslog-ng Agent version 3.0.7.
	* In certain situations, the agent terminated unexpectedly if a large
	  number of eventlog sources were registered on the client host.
	  This has been corrected.
	* The GPO occasionally restarted the syslog-ng Agent if the address of
	  a destination server was very long. This has been corrected.
	* It is possible to specify the Distinguished Name (DN) of the
	  certificate to use for TLS-encrypted connections. So far it was
	  possible to specify the Common Name (CN) only.

	Eventlog Sources:
	* In case an event container did not exist, the agent sent
	  "Cannot format event log message" messages. Now the nonexistent event
	  container is ignored, and a proper log message is sent to the
	  Application container.

	File Sources:
	* Until now, the agent has opened text files in a mode that prevented
	  the file from being deleted. Now the files can be deleted, but the
	  deleting application must ensure that there are no unsent messages in
	  the file to avoid losing messages.


        * When upgrading a machine running version 3.0.3 or later in standalone
          mode, run the .exe installer and verify that the displayed information
          is correct.
        * When upgrading a machine running version 3.0.3 or later 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 package.
