PACKAGE             : syslog-ng
VERSION             : 3.0.7
SUMMARY             : new stable release
DATE                : Jun 7, 2010


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

        * When syslog-ng is reloaded, the local hostname value was not
          refreshed, causing syslog-ng to remember the hostname until the
          next restart. This may not play nice with DHCP configured
          hostnames, which may change dynamically.
        * When several SIGHUP signals are received in quick succession, the
          last one may have been dropped. This problem is fixed.
        * Make sure that numbers never get resolved using getpwnam/getgrnam
          (e.g.  libnss functions), because this may cause deadlocks if the
          NSS provider is LDAP and the LDAP server is trying to log a
          message to syslog about invalid usernames.
        * Fixed flush_timeout() handling in for non-file destinations.
          Enabling flush_lines()/flush_timeout() for a non-file destination,
          either using a global option, or a per-destination option could
          cause excess CPU usage as long as the destination wasn't writable.

        Other changes:
        * Introduced a new, cleaner syntax to specify that the permissions
          of a file are not to be changed. Use owner/group/perm options of a
          file without any parameters instead of "-1". The old mechanism had
          the problem that both per-file and global settings had to use "-1"
          to effectively stop syslog-ng from changing the uid/gid/perm
          values. The new syntax will make it possible to specify defaults in
          the global options section and customize those on a per-file
        * syslog-ng will not go into the background if either the
          --syntax-only or --debug options are specified.
