Summary: The new-generation syslog-daemon
syslog-ng is a "new-generation" syslogd (replacement) for Unix and
Unix-like systems. It tries to fill the gaps in the original syslogd:

* powerful configurability
* filtering based on message content
* portability
* better network forwarding

    patch to be removed on next release
* Wed Aug 24 2011
  - Adopted to require new syslog-service package on 12.x, that
    provides the /etc/init.d/syslog LSB init script and systemd
    syslog.service service file. Removed syslog-ng.service file
    installation from spec file. (fate#311316).

  - removed some unnecessary docs (INSTALL, etc.)
  - updated config and enabled multi threading by default
  - added json subpackage
  - keep only (the notls version is not used)
* Mon Jun 06 2011
  - Updated to syslog-ng-3.2.4, maintenance release fixing several
    issues -- a digest of the changes:
    * A bug was found in the pcre implementation for subst(). If the
      "global" flag is specified and pcre returns an error, an infinite
      loop is created, consuming memory in the process. It is triggered
      by PCRE 8.12, but could potentially affect older versions too.
      (bnc#697374, CVE-2011-1951)
    * Fixed a potential use of uninitialized memory in the configuration
      file parser, no bug was triggered but gcc 4.6 reported it via a
    * Fixed a possible security issue on Debian/kFreeBSD and on platforms
      where mode_t is an unsigned 16 bit value (FreeBSD,HP-UX).
    * Fixes an y2k38 problem that causes syslog-ng to use 100% CPU time
      in case mark messages are enabled and the UNIX timestamps overflows
      a signed 32 bit counter, which happens in 19th, January 2038.
    * Fixed file() destination to work on device nodes (e.g. files in
      /dev).  Without this change, syslog-ng started using 100% CPU time
      if given devices as destinations that couldn't always consume data.
    * Don't attempt to remember the current file position for source
      files that are read with follow-freq(0), e.g. /dev/klog and /proc/kmsg.
    * Added systemd socket activation support.
    For complete list, please read NEWS file provided in the package.
  - Removed obsolete systemd integration patch, added to install syslog-ng
    service file as forced in bnc#696963 even feature 311316 is not yet
    implemented, that is, log rotation files do not work, chroot socket
    config file is never generated when running under systemd.
  - Enabled to read kernel messages directly (/proc/kmsg) for 12.x
  - Added generation of dummy additional-log-sockets.conf in post install
  - Adopted less static patch to build on 11.3.
* Fri May 27 2011
  - Removed touch of obsolete /var/log/boot.log from spec post.
* Thu Feb 10 2011
  - Fixed typo module-path in the config file (bnc#664931#c5).
* Wed Feb 02 2011
  - Moved sql support lib into separate syslog-ng-sql package,
    adopted the module-path patch and disabled loading of the
    sql module in scl/modules.conf config file by default.
    Adopted spec file to use with_sql for conditional build.
* Wed Feb 02 2011
  - added module-path patch to be able to load modules
    also from /usr and removes an ugly warning message
* Tue Feb 01 2011
  - Merged all the systemd integration steps patches into one.
* Tue Feb 01 2011
  - added systemd patches from
* Fri Jan 28 2011
  - add database (libdbi) support for 11.4 and up
  - use systemd patches only on 11.4 and up
* Tue Jan 18 2011
  - Updated systemd support to the patch set sent upstream and
    additional workaround to not break the syslog-ng.ctl sock.
    Current limitation is, that *all* unix sockets have to be
    set up same way, that is either systemd activated or not,
    because the systemd patch disables unlink&bind functions.
* Tue Jan 18 2011
  - temporarily disabled systemd support
  - update to 3.2.2 bugfix release
* Fri Dec 10 2010
  - Implemented a first version of systemd socket activation support
  - Enabled suppress config option to catch log message dupplicates
    in case a program runs amok until disk is full (bnc#656197).
  - Disabled build date/time in binary to avoid rebuild (rpmlint).
  - Do not install /lib*/ devel file (rpmlint).
* Tue Nov 30 2010
  - update to 3.2.1 release
  - libdbi support is added but commented out (libdbi not yet in
  - many little fixes (added man pages, new config files, etc.)
  - the new system() from upstream not yet used because of AppArmor
* Sun Nov 21 2010
  - build against the dynamic glib in /lib on 11.4 to fix build
* Sun Nov 21 2010
  - build against libnet-devel on 11.4
* Thu Aug 05 2010

  - some more patches accepted by upstream: bnc#568150
* Tue May 04 2010
  - removed /var/tmp/syslog-ng from rpm to prepare for
  - upstream accepted some patches from the 2.0.9 openSUSE
    package, applied now, as 3.1.2 is still far away
* Tue Apr 13 2010
  - Reformated last changes entry to avoid overlong lines,
    added reason why some of the features are disabled.
* Tue Apr 13 2010
  - upgraded to version 3.1.1
  - removed patches, which were made redundant by 3.1.1
  - enabled pcre, modified the 'less-static' patch
  - NEWS from 2.0 to 3.0
    * Version 3.0 of syslog-ng supports the new syslog protocol
      standards by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).
    * Log statements can be embedded into each other, making it
      possible to design complex log paths. That way for example
      the results of a filter can be sent to multiple destinations,
      or it can be sent to a destination unchanged, and partly
      rewritten for the other destination.
    * The encoding of source files can be set for proper character
      conversion (internally syslog-ng represents every message in
    * The syslog-ng application assigns a unique message
      identification number to every log message, making it easy
      to detect if any messages are lost.
    * The syslog-ng application can read, process, and rewrite
      structured messages (e.g., Apache webserver logs) using
      templates and regular expressions. Both messages with fixed
      field sizes and fields separated with delimiters (e.g.,
      comma-separated values) are supported.
  - NEWS from 3.0 to 3.1
    * Support for patterndb v2 and v3 format, along with a bunch
      to new parsers: ANYSTRING, IPv6, IPvANY and FLOAT.
    * Added a new "pdbtool" utility to manage patterndb files:
      convert them from v1 or v2 format, merge mulitple patterndb
      files into one and look up matching patterns given a specific
    * Support for message tags: tags can be assigned to log messages
      as they enter syslog-ng: either by the source driver or via
      Later it these tags can be used for efficient filtering.
    * Added support for rewriting structured data.
    * Macros and name-value pairs got a little tighter integration,
      in filters where syslog-ng 3.0 was limited to only use
      name-value pairs, with 3.1 you can also use macros.
    * Enhanced dynamic name-value performance by a factor of three.
    * Some parsers got additional features: NUMBER is now able to
      parse hexadecimal numbers, ESTRING is now able to search for
      multiple characters as the end of the string.
    * Added non-standard and non-portable facility codes (range
      10-15), decouple syslog-ng facility name information from
      the system used to compile syslog-ng on.
  - new features, which are not enabled because of /usr dependency:
    * TLS support
    * logging to databases
* Wed Mar 31 2010
  - added two temporary patches to fix pipe() problems
  - added include "/var/run/syslog-ng/additional-log-sockets.conf";
    to syslog-ng.conf to replace the old "-a" mechanism
* Wed Mar 24 2010
  - updated to 3.1.0 release
  - added some new utilities (pdbtool & syslog-ng-ctl)
  - removed most of the patches to stay as close to upstream
    as possible
  - patch to compile only glib statically
  - updated syslog-ng.conf to v3.0 syntax
* Mon Jan 18 2010
  - Fixed to inform user instead to fail when the removed summary()
    suse extension option were used in old config (bnc#519653).
* Fri Jan 15 2010
  - Applied POLLERR handling fixes for logreader/logwriter causing
    100% CPU usage e.g. when a UDP destination is down (bnc#541802).
