VERSION             : 3.3.7
SUMMARY             : new stable release
DATE                : Oct 30, 2012


  A new stable version of syslog-ng Open Source Edition (3.3.7) has been
  released. For latest fixes in the 3.3.x feature branch you are recommended to
  upgrade to this version.


        Wed, 31 Oct 2012 10:00:00 +0200


        This release is a bug-fix release, correcting a handful of
        issues discovered after the previous version was tagged.


        * The bundled ivykis has been updated, fixing the following

          * Fixed a Solaris-specific issue relating to TCP sources

          * Fixed a spinlock issue, triggered on at least FreeBSD

          * Workaround an issue with kqueue() on /dev/klog [#201]

        * The file source was corrected to properly handle character
          devices. This, and the ivykis update fixes a CPU spinning
          issue on FreeBSD. [#201]

        * The sun-streams module had a file descriptor leak, which has
          been corrected too. [#151]

        * The glob-based configuration file inclusion was fixed to
          behave similarly to including a whole directory, to include
          files alphabetically. [#191]

          The @include mechanism was also updated to not fail
          silently, but report an error in certain cases (such as
          permission errors, or missing files in case of an explicit,
          non-glob include). [#209]

        * Fixed a crash when trying to display the available modules
          in debug mode. [#189]

        * Fixed the building of afsocket-notls, so that it is
          correctly built without TLS support. [#188]

        * Fix compilation without spoof-source. [#192]

        * Avoid a feedback loop when emitting debug (and trace)
          messages. [#208]

        * Various minor fixes around the build system.


        * The stats will now list the filename of unix domain
          sockets. [#195]
