Summary: Rotate, compress, remove, and mail system log files
The logrotate utility is designed to simplify the administration of log
files on a system that generates a lot of log files. Logrotate allows
the automatic rotation, compression, removal, and mailing of log files.
Logrotate can be set to handle a log file daily, weekly, monthly, or
when the log file reaches a certain size. Normally, logrotate runs as a
daily cron job.

    - Improved rotation during daylight saving time and between timezone
    - Fixed ACL setting problem caused by ext3 erroneously reporting ENOSYS
      instead of ENOSUP.
    - Do not continue with rotation if state file is corrupted.
    - Make logrotate.status creation atomic.
    - Allow "hourly" rotation. See manpage for more information.
    - Use "/bin/echo" in tests. Fixes tests execution in Dash.
    - Do no try to parse config files bigger than 16MB.
    - Improved manpage consistency and formatting.
    - Fix race condition between acl_set_fd() and fchmod().
    - Added --version command line option
    - Disable ACL tests if logrotate is not compiled WITH_ACL support or if
      ACLs are not supported by the system running tests
    - Disable SELinux tests if logrotate is not compiled WITH_SELINUX support
      or if SELinux is not supported by the system running tests
    - Fixed bug which prevented skipping particular log file config
      if the config contained errors.
    - Fixed skipping of configs containing firstaction/lastaction scripts
      with '}' character in case of error before these scripts.
    - Support also 'K' unit for *size directives.
    - Added preremove option to let admin to do something with the old logs
      before they are removed by logrotate.
    - Fixed possible loop in tabooext parsing.
    - Move code to set SELinux context before compressLogFile calls to create
      compressed log files with the proper context.
    - Call prerotate/postrotate script only for really rotated files in
      nosharedscripts mode (as stated in man page).
    - Fixed setting "size" bigger than 4GB on 32bit architectures
    - Do not overwrite mode set by "create" option when using ACL. "create"
      directive is now not mixed up with ACLs. If you use "create" in config
      file and log file has some ACLs set, ACLs are not kept and are
      overwritten by the mode set in "create" directive.
    - Mode argument in "create" directive can be omitted. Only owner and group
      is set in this case. Check man page for more info.
    - show error and ignore config if '{' is not present after log files
    - support whitespaces in compressoptions directive
    - support for tilde expansion in config files
    - 'su' directive does not affect script execution - scripts
      are executed as a root if 'su' directive is present
    - fixed mail sending for 'mailfirst', 'dateext' and 'delaycompress'
    - do not use gzip/gunzip from /usr/local on Solaris
    - add O_NOFOLLOW when opening files as safeguard against symlink tricks.
      Symlinks rotation is now officially unsupported. It didn't work
      as expected in the past anyway.
    - do not run external programs with uid != euid
    - fixed potential bad-free when ACL is used
    - Do not include alloca.h on NetBSD, since alloca() is declared in
      stdlib.h there
