  recommended to upgrade to this version.

        This is the first Release Candidate of the syslog-ng 3.5
        development branch, with stability and reliability
        improvements. Being a release candidate, this release should
        be very close to production ready.


        * The program() source and destination now properly terminates
          child processes on reload and shutdown.

        * The AMQP, SMTP, MongoDB, Redis and STOMP destinations now
          work correctly across reloads.

        * A rare race condition in the log message reference cache was
          corrected, fixing a crash.

        * The JSON parser now understands null-typed values, and
          ignores the whole key silently when it encounters one.

        * Using the subst() rewrite rule when the same source is
          present in multiple logpaths does not crash anymore.


        * The autogen.sh script is included in the distributed

        Known Bugs

        * The afstreams module is broken, does not compile, and does
          not work. This will be corrected before the final 3.5.1
