PACKAGE             : syslog-ng
VERSION             : 3.5.6
SUMMARY             : new stable release
DATE                : Aug 5, 2014


  A new stable version of syslog-ng Open Source Edition (3.5.6) has been
  released. For latest fixes in the 3.5.x feature branch you are recommended to
  upgrade to this version.


        Mon,  4 Aug 2014 13:39:42 +0200

        This is the sixth bug-fix release for the 3.5.x series.
        Upgrading from earlier versions is highly recommended, as the
        changes in this release are very small, yet, also very
        important for most platforms and workloads.


        * A major memory leak was fixed in the value-pairs framework,
          which affects $(format-json), MongoDB, AMQP and more. The
          leak was supposed to be fixed in 3.5.5, but due to a merging
          mistake, it was missed.

        * The configure script now detects Linux capabilities
          properly, there is no need to use --disable-linux-caps on
          non-Linux platforms anymore.

        * The pdbtool merge command will now generate version 4
          patterndb files, instead of version 3.
