This email is to inform you of release '1.4.17' of 'syslog-ng' through
freshmeat.net. All URLs and other useful information can be found at
The changes in this release are as follows:
Some minor bugs have been fixed.
syslog-ng, as the name shows, is a syslogd replacement, but with new
functionality for the new generation. The original syslogd allows
messages only to be sorted based on priority/facility pairs;
syslog-ng adds the possibility to filter based on message contents
using regular expressions. The new configuration scheme is intuitive
and powerful. Forwarding logs over TCP and remembering all forwarding
hops makes it ideal for firewalled environments.
