Dear syslog-ng users,

This is the 39th issue of the syslog-ng Insider, a monthly newsletter
that brings you syslog-ng-related news.


syslog-ng incubator 0.4.1 released


We are proud to announce that version 0.4.1 of syslog-ng incubator is

destination and a grok parser.

Ports and packages are available for Fedora, FreeBSD and openSUSE, but
with some of the features missing, as dependencies are not yet
available packaged.
