        * csv-parser() defaults to "escape-none" mode even if it is not
        * Fixed a possible CPU spinning in case mark_freq() is changed from
          a non-zero value to zero and syslog-ng is reloaded.
        * Fixed a flow control problem for the internal() source possibly
          causing an assertion to fail, e.g. syslog-ng to crash voluntarily.
        * Make it possible to use a literal '$' character by using two of
        * Make it possible to use binary characters within strings in
          configuration files by using a C-like \xHH, \oOOO syntax.
        * Attempt to flush the messages sitting in output queues a bit
          harder at shutdown.
        * Handle ESTALE errors in the file source for NFS file systems,
          which might cause a spin on the CPU otherwise.
        * Fixed a possible use-after-free problem potentially causing
          crashes or misbehaviour. No concrete errors were reported though.
        * The SQL driver didn't honour the port() option, this was fixed.
        * Fixed program_override() option, previously it overrode the
          hostname instead because of a typo.
        * Accept 3.1 as configuration version, previously it only accepted
        * Fixed internal() message loop detection in case an error happened
          on the log writer flush path.
