        * Make it possible to link crypto stuff directly into
        libsyslog-ng, using the new --with-embedded-crypto option to

        * DNS resolving was made thread-safe, by either using
        getnameinfo() on platforms where it is available, or
        protecting the lookups with a mutex.

        * Restored support for systems that lack GLOB_NOMAGIC.

        * The syslog() destination now correctly enforces IPv4, so
          using udp6() followed by syslog() in the same source block
          will not result in syslog() trying to use IPv6. To use the
          syslog protocol over IPv6, use the new network() statement.

        * On AIX, load modules from "a" archives instead of "so" ones.

        * The config version checking mechanism was patched, which
          fixes a crash in certain cases when running under systemd.

        * The GeoIP module can now be built even on systems that do
          not have a pkg-config file for the geoip library, by setting
          the GEOIP_LIBS environment variable prior to running

        syslog-ng is developed as a community project, and as such it relies

        user of syslog-ng, contribute.
