	Upgrading to syslog-ng Agent version 3.2 is supported only
	from syslog-ng Agent version 3.0.8 and 3.1.1.


    File sources
    * The syslog-ng Agent for Windows application now handles multi-line
      messages. Therefore, more messages can be processed than if all the
      lines were handled separately.
    * Encoding can now be selected for files.

    * Besides global filtering, now filtering per destinations is also possible.
      Therefore, different messages can be forwarded to different destinations.
    * File sources can now also be filtered with whitelist filtering.

    * Snare support is now handled better; Snare-compatible message processing
      is now accessible as a separate protocol, and uses correct message format.
    * When using IETF-syslog protocol for eventlog messages, macros received
      during processing can be sent as name-value pairs in the SDATA part of
      the message. This is the default setting in new installations.
    * In new installations, the IETF-syslog protocol is the default.

    * It is possible to export the configuration to an XML file (both from
      command line and GUI), and it can be imported to other agents
      from command line.
    * Configuring destinations is now more user-friendly.
    * Clicking help in the GUI opens the relevant part of the Administrator
      Guide in Internet Explorer browser window.


    * There was a rare issue when there were several destinations configured,
      the syslog-ng Agent terminated abnormally. This has been corrected.


      Upgrading to syslog-ng Agent for Windows version 3.2 is supported only
      from syslog-ng Agent version 3.0.8 and 3.1.1.

      Downgrading from a feature release to an earlier (and thus
      unsupported) feature release, or to the stable release is not
      supported: this means that once you upgrade a system from a stable
      release (e.g., 3.0) to a feature release (e.g., 3.1), you will have to
      keep upgrading to the new feature releases until the next stable
      version release (e.g., 4.0) is published, or risk using an
      unsupported product.
      Both the stable and the feature branches will be supported via
      maintenance (e.g., bugfix) releases.

       * When upgrading a machine running version 3.0.8 in standalone
         mode, run the .exe installer and verify that the displayed information
         is correct.
       * When upgrading a machine running version 3.0.8 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.
