The documentation has been greatly enhanced. Some possible memory leaks and race conditions were fixed. The code can now be compiled with older APR 1.2. Group memberships are honored on Unix/Linux, and a regression in the im_file module has been fixed when using wildcards.
The code can now be compiled for Android. SNARE Syslog format support has been added for output. The im_mseventlog module can now produce output in UTF-8 and its error handling was enhanced to be more fault tolerant against the EventLog subsystem's failures. The im_mseventlog and im_msvistalog modules now set the AccountType and Category fields. A ReadFromLast configuration directive was added for the im_mseventlog and im_file modules
The newer IETF syslog standard (RFC 5424, 5425, 5426) is now fully supported. The I/O layer has been rewritten, which yields a 2-3x performance boost in some situations.
This release fixes a database reconnection issue in om_dbi which was affecting PostgreSQL. Syslog conversion now strips newlines from the message. A new module, im_msvistalog, was added to support reading all messages from Windows EventLog on Windows2008, Vista, and later.
This release fixes the service start in the Windows version when the executable was invoked directly, and adds a README file which is displayed at the end of the installation.
