Let me use this opportunity to also announce our new website and the new
features it provides.

* Until now both the English and Hungarian contents were available on both
  www.balabit.com and www.balabit.hu, this has now changed. English content
  is only available on www.balabit.com, Hungarian is only available at

* Daily snapshots are now available in the src-snapshot directory of a given
  major version. These snapshots are generated from my internal CVS tree, thus
  patches sent to the mailing list are usually integrated. Snapshots have
  a version number like 1.6.0rc1+20030220 where '+' separates the current
  actual version number and the date the snapshot was generated.

  Snapshots are not tested in any way, so it is possible that they do not
  compile, however new patches are integrated there first.

* Security advisories are put into a single location so both Zorp and
  syslog-ng related advisories can be found at the same location.

And now the more important thing:

I have released syslog-ng 1.6.0rc1 which is available at 


or in Hungarian:
