Now scaling better with thousands of files

Version 1.4.803 has been released today.
The im_file module has been enhanced so that it deals better with thousands of files and consumes less CPU. It will automatically retry files which gave a read error earlier instead of stopping completely. The im_msvistalog module now pulls all application logs by default in addition to the system logs. There were several other enhancements and bug fixes, the changelog is available in the source tarball.
