        Fri, 26 Sep 2014 11:17:31 +0200

This is the first Release Candidate of the syslog-ng OSE 3.6 branch.
Based on our test results this release is almost production ready.


* Added groupset rewrite object.
  Groupset allows the user to modify multiple log message properties at once.
  It also allows referencing the old value of the property as the $_ macro.


* Fixed a memory leak during configuration parsing when using `rewrite()`.
* Change control socket message from notice to debug
* Fixes for retries() functionality.
  Retry counter incremented by every message write error
  (including network connection errors) which can lead to message lost.
