        This is the fourth bug-fix release for the 3.4.x series, with
        important fixes over the 3.4.4 release. Upgrading to this
        release is highly recommended.


        * A race condition in log message reference counting code that
          sometimes led to crashes was fixed. [#255]

        * An assertion that happened in certain situations when a
          subst() rewrite rule was used was fixed. [#256]

        * A use-after-free error that sometimes happened after a
          reload, and caused memory corruption was also fixed. [#253]

        * patterndb was corrected not to create a new instance on
          reload: this way, the old one is not leaked, and db-parser()
          does not forget the correlation state, nor its idea of
          current time on reload. [#257]

        * The syslog-ng.spec file does not try to install the
          long-removed ChangeLog file anymore.

        * A few harmless, but noisy compiler warnings have been


        * The JSON parser now understands NULL-typed keys, and ignores
