syslog-ng 3.3.7 release (due october 31), with the most pressing bugs
already fixed. Testing this release candidate and reporting any and all
issues found with it - be those regressions or anything else - would be
greatly appreciated!

wants to track how the release is progressing and what needs to be fixed
still before the final release, see the 3.3.7 target milestone on

        * The bundled ivykis has been updated to fix two bugs found
          after the 3.3.6 release was tagged:

          * Fixed a Solaris-specific issue relating to TCP sources

          * Fixed a spinlock issue, triggered on at least FreeBSD

        * The glob-based configuration file inclusion was fixed to
          behave similarly to including a whole directory, to include
          files alphabetically. [#191]

        * Fixed a crash when trying to display the available modules
          in debug mode. [#189]

        * Fixed the building of afsocket-notls, so that it is
          correctly built without TLS support. [#188]

        * Fix compilation without spoof-source. [#192]
