PACKAGE             : syslog-ng
VERSION             : 3.0.6
SUMMARY             : new stable release
DATE                : Apr 11, 2010


  A new stable version of syslog-ng Open Source Edition (3.0.6) has been
  released. For latest fixes in the 3.0.x branch you are recommended to
  upgrade to this version.

        * Fixed a boundary checking error on the usertty() destination,
          which can cause a local buffer to be overflown if the wtmp file on
          the system contains more than 123 characters in its ut_line
          member. It is not believed to be exploitable on the following
            Linux (32 chars)
            Solaris (12 chars)
            AIX (64 chars)
            HP-UX (12 chars)
            FreeBSD (8 chars)
            OpenBSD (8 chars)

        * Fixed a possible loss of the last partial message in the TCP and
          TLS transports of the syslog() driver.
        * Fixed empty line handling in the syslog() driver. The parser now
          accepts empty lines (which it didn't, but should have) and empty
          lines have the required trailing space which it didn't previously.
        * Fixed SDATA value lookup in case the the SD-ID contains dots.
        * Added escaping support to the structured-data parser.
        * Fixed an off-by-one bug in the structured data parser.
        * Fixed a possible segmentation fault after initializing the
          configuration when using unix-stream() and unix-dgram() destinations.
        * Fixed the Solaris 10 SMF script to handle "refresh" calls.
        * Fixed the Solaris 10 SMF script to handle an existing PID file
          without syslog-ng running with that pid.
        * Fixed the Solaris init/SMF scripts to avoid ugly error messages if
          the dump device doesn't exist. This situation can easily happen in
          a chroot or a zone.
        * Fixed a 100% CPU usage if the pipe() driver is applied to a regular
          file, or a file() driver on a named pipe.
        * Fixed a daylight saving problem in the transition window when
          receiving a BSD timestamp.
        * syslog-ng CSV format statistics (reachable via the syslog-ng.ctl
          socket) is now properly escaped.

        Other changes:
        * Fixed a linking problem with the MacOSX linker.
        * Added automatic test coverage for RFC5424 protocol format.
        * The SQL driver will drop a message after 3 failed attempts to
          insert it into the database.
        * If a character set conversion problem occurs on a connection,
          syslog-ng will drop the connection instead of trying to read
