        Fri, 27 Sep 2013 10:06:52 +0200

        This is the second BETA release of the syslog-ng 3.5
        development branch, introducing new features and a handful of
        fixes since the last beta version. While running in production
        is still not advised, testing is most appreciated.

        Major Features

        Redis destination

        Developed during the Google Summer of Code 2013 program, this
        destination driver makes it possible to easily send commands
        to a Redis server.

        For further information and examples, please see the following
        blog post:

        Template type hinting

        In 3.5.0beta1, type hinting was implemented for the MongoDB
        destination, with this release, it is also available for the
        $(format-json) template function.

        Template options honored everywhere

        Until this release, there were situations where template
        options were ignored, such as filter expressions that use the
        comparsion operators, regexp based substitutions, incoming
        templates for parsers, the new value rewrite rules, SMTP
        values, some of the new drivers (stomp, amqp), and patterndb

        These all honor the global template options now, and
        per-driver options such as frac-digits and local-time-zone are
        available for drivers which did not have them before, like


        * The AMQP destination has been fixed, and using it does not
          lead to a crash anymore.

        * Several memory leaks in the STOMP destination have been

        * The --no-framing option of loggen has been fixed, and works
          as advertised now.

        * The in-list() filter ignores empty lines in its input file,
          to avoid matching on empty values.

        * Compilation on FreeBSD has been fixed.
