PACKAGE             : syslog-ng
VERSION             : 3.4.7
SUMMARY             : new stable release
DATE                : Dec 24, 2013


  A new stable version of syslog-ng Open Source Edition (3.4.7) has been
  released. For latest fixes in the 3.4.x feature branch you are recommended to
  upgrade to this version.


        Tue, 24 Dec 2013 21:07:34 +0100

        This is the sixth bug-fix release for the 3.4.x series, with a
        number of important fixes over the 3.4.6 release. Upgrading to
        this release is highly recommended.


        * Node flag propagation has been fixed, so flags(final) works
          the same as it did in 3.3, when embedded log statements are
          used too.

        * Using the value-pairs() framework, either via the
          $(format-json) template function or any of the destinations
          that make use of it, will now correctly skip and ignore
          empty values, even in SDATA.

        * A file descriptor and memory leak has been fixed in the
          syslog() destination.

        * The pdbtool program will warn in test mode when a test
          message has no program attribute. [BugZilla #263]

        * If the PID property is overwritten, syslog-ng will now stop
          using the cached MSGHDR value, and therefore, use the newly
          set PID instead, as it was supposed to.

        * The localport() option of various network destinations has
          been restored, and will work correctly now. [BugZilla #266]

        * The upstart service file in contrib has been updated to use
          a different process mode (background), as we do not need a
          supervisor when running under upstart. This also means that
          upstart will be far less confused.


        syslog-ng is developed as a community project, and as such it relies
        on volunteers to do the work necessarily to produce syslog-ng.

        Reporting bugs, testing changes, writing code or simply providing
        feedback are all important contributions, so please if you are a
        user of syslog-ng, contribute.
