I have released syslog-ng 1.6.3 with the following user-visible changes:

News for the 1.6.3 release
        Thu, 06 May 2004 11:05:46 +0200
        * fixed possible abort when several UNIX domain sources refer to the
          same socket
        * fixed afunix and afinet destination template handling, do not include
          the PRI value automatically, let the administrator do it
          explicitly in its template
        * fixed possible segfault when the value of 0 is represented as a
          string in port specications (e.g. remoteport, localport, port)
        * added MSGONLY macro which expands to the message only without the
          program name which sent the log message
        * added global sanitize_filenames() option which changes control
          characters in all filenames to '.', defaults to TRUE, this might
          avoid escape sequence attacks embedded in filenames (imagine an
          administrator doing an ls in a directory where filenames contain
          any control characters)
        * avoid using GNU extensions in strftime (more specificly the
          timezone expansion in $ISODATE used %z which is not portable for
        * added address spoofing support (use the original IP address when
          resending messages, read the file README.spoof for more information)
        * couple of IRIX specific patches were integrated
        * updated documentation

have fun!
