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.
