        This release is a bug-fix release, correcting a handful of
        issues discovered since the previous one.


        * The system() source now works correctly accross all
          supported FreeBSD versions.

        * The patterndb loader was improved to handle certain semantic
          errors better: to report the error instead of crashing.

        * Fixed unsafe use of non-reentrant APIs to resolve IP
          addresses to names, which caused problems when threaded mode
          was enabled. [#212]

        * Support for systems lacking GLOB_NOMAGIC (like AIX) was
          restored. [#213]

        * The syslog() destination now forces IPv4, like all the other
          destinations, thus using it after udp6() would not result in
          syslog-ng trying to use IPv6 for syslog() aswell. [#61]

        * The bundled ivykis has been updated, fixing the following

           * Certain Linux kernel & glibc combinations triggered a
             scenario that confused ivykis, leading to syslog-ng not
             starting up at all.

        Other changes

        * It is now possible to build syslog-ng with crypto routines
          directly embedded into the main libsyslog-ng.so library,
          making libsyslog-ng-crypto.so unnecessary. This is useful in
          a few different cases, and can be enabled by passing the
          --with-embedded-crypto to the configure script.
