PACKAGE             : syslog-ng
VERSION             : 3.1.4

DATE                : Jan 14, 2011


  A new stable version of syslog-ng Open Source Edition (3.1.4) has been

        * Fixed hostname resolution in case normalize_hostnames() is
          enabled. In this case syslog-ng didn't properly NUL terminate the
          string causing binary characters to be emitted in log messages.
        * Fixed a possible security issue on FreeBSD and on
          platforms where mode_t is an unsigned 16 bit value. On these
          platforms syslog-ng may be using 0xFFFF as the permission bits
          causing log files to be world readable/writable/executable/setuid.
        * Fixed handling the port() options for SQL destinations.
        * Fixed a possible segmentation fault when the port number is
          changed for a TCP source, the configuration is reloaded and there
          were open connections for the old port, which send messages after
          the SIGHUP. This behaviour has been broken since 3.0.1.
        * The configure script has been changed to properly honour the value
          of ${exec_prefix} in case the env wrapper is enabled
          (--enable-env-wrapper). Configurations not using the env wrapper
          or using the same value for exec_prefix & prefix should not be

        Other Changes:
        * Added explicit patterndb version check, in order to inform the
          user that a patterndb file is meant to be used by a newer
          syslog-ng version.
        * Increase YYMAXDEPTH value to make it possible to process larger
          configuration files.
        * Clarified the message on the deprecated use of use_time_recvd()
