Not yet, it's still missing (even in the snapshot syslog-ng-1.6rc1+20030224). 
But the "new capabilities for templates" are the implementation of the well 
known "template()" and "template_escape()" options of the "file" destination 
driver to all other destination drivers. The syntax is the same. Thus you can 
define destination drivers like

destination d_net {
        tcp( "loghost" port(10514)
                template("$ISODATE $HOST $MSG\n")

destination d_user {
                template("$ISODATE $HOST [$FACILITY.$LEVEL] $MSG\n")

etc ....
