I've released the first development version (1.3.0) of syslog-ng to the usual
places. It supports macro expansion in destination file names, and a new
filter function which calls another filter rule. A new version of libol is
needed (0.2.6) to compile this version.

To use the new features, use the following config file snippets:

1) calling another rule

filter f_mail { facility(mail); };
filter f_ftp { facility(ftp); };

filter f_default { not filter(f_mail); not filter(f_ftp); };

2) macro expansion in destination filenames

destination all { file("/var/log/$HOST.$YEAR$MONTH"); };
