- Applied patch for 1/2 byte buffer overflow while parsing legacy
  syslog messages that may cause a crash (CVE-2011-3200,bnc#714658).
- Applied a fix for a memcpy overflow while processing allowed sender
  rules in the config that resolve to IPv4-mapped-on-IPv6 addresses.

Thu Mar 24 16:34:31 UTC 2011 -

- Updated to 5.6.5 (v5-stable) with following bugfixes:
  * bugfix: failover did not work correctly if repeated msg
  reduction was on.
  affected directive: $ActionExecOnlyWhenPreviousIsSuspended on
  * bugfix: omlibdbi did not use password from rsyslog.conf
  * bugfix(kind of): tell users that config graph can currently
  not be generated
  * bugfix: discard action did not work under some circumstances
  * bugfix: potential abort condition when $RepeatedMsgReduction
  were set to on as well as potentially in a number of other places
  where MsgDup() was used. This only happened when the imudp input
  module was used and it depended on name resolution not yet had
  taken place. (bnc#679030)
  * bugfix: fixed a memory leak and potential abort condition
  this could happen if multiple rulesets were used and some output
  batches contained messages belonging to more than one ruleset.
  * bugfix: memory leak when $RepeatedMsgReduction on was used
  bug tracker:
- Merged systemd socket activation support

Wed Feb  2 16:47:24 UTC 2011 -

- update to 5.6.3 (v5-stable) with following bugfixes (digest):
  * action processor released mememory too early, resulting in
  potential issue in retry cases (very unlikely).
  * batch processing flagged invalid message as "bad" under some
  * unitialized variable could cause issues under extreme
  conditions plus some minor nits.
  * batches which had actions in error were not properly retried
  in all cases
  * imfile did duplicate messages under some circumstances
- enabled plain tcp input, unix socket output, last message
  parser and the libdbi module as separate package.
- disabled systemd patch for openSUSE <= 11.3

Thu Jan 20 14:10:59 UTC 2011 -

- Improved systemd socket activation support to allow multiple
  unix sockets and activation in forking mode (bnc#656197).

Fri Dec  3 16:49:41 UTC 2010 -

- update to 5.6.2 (v5-stable) with following bugfixes:
  * compile failed on systems without epoll_create1()
    Thanks to David Hill for providing a fix.
  * atomic increment for msg object may not work correct on
    all platforms. Thanks to Chris Metcalf for the patch
  * replacements for atomic operations for non-int sized types
    had problems. At least one instance of that problem could
    potentially lead to abort (inside omfile).
- Increased mark frequency in rsyslog.conf to 1 hour
- Enabled duplicate message reduction in rsyslog.conf to catch
  at least buggy programs running amok and writting same message
  zillion times until the disk gets out of space (bnc#656197).
- Merged rsyslog-systemd-integration.bnc656104.diff (fuzz=0).

Mon Nov 29 10:32:58 CET 2010 -

- update to 5.6.1
  This release addresses a TLS bug, that has been bothering a lot
  of users lately. It stops rsyslog from looping, thus disabling
  functionality and bearing the risk of unresponsiveness of the
  whole system. Other issues have been fixed for imptcp, failing
  testbench, segfault on empty templates and failed compile.
  For more detailed information, please review the ChangeLog and,,
- applied systemd integration base patch (without the service and
  socket unit files, because we'll use same for all syslog damons)
  extracted from git master (bnc#656104).

Sat Nov 20 16:15:46 UTC 2010 -

- build with libnet-devel on 11.4

Mon Nov 15 14:59:21 UTC 2010 -

- update to 5.6.0
  This release brings all changes and enhancements of the 5.5.x
  series to the v5-stable branch.
  - bugfix: a couple of problems that imfile had on some platforms,
    namely Ubuntu (not their fault, but occured there)
  - bugfix: imfile utilizes 32 bit to track offset. Most importantly,
    this problem can not experienced on Fedora 64 bit OS (which has
    64 bit long's!)
- removed obsolete patch
  - xconsole-pipe-loop
- rpmlint
  - name-repeated-in-summary C Rsyslog

Wed Apr 28 17:21:03 UTC 2010 -

- Added $klogConsoleLogLevel 1 to the config, to use same default
  [KERNEL_LOGLEVEL in /etc/sysconfig/syslog] as klogd (bnc#593699).
- Improved filter to discard iptables msgs higher err on console,
  changed to set default file template instead per file, removed
  duplicate filters (bnc#593699).

Tue Apr 27 12:01:44 UTC 2010 -

- Applied fix to avoid a tight send-retry loop in case there is
  nobody receiving the messages sent to the xconsole pipe
- Disabled relp support for < 11.3 (librelp is new)
- Fixed to create /var/run/rsyslog in post-install (rpmlint)

Wed Apr 14 12:16:29 UTC 2010 -

- dropped install_all_modules_in_lib conditional and all related
- new subpackages
  - enable RELP support. new depdendency librelp
  - enable diagnotic tools.
  - enable UDP spoof support. new dependency libnet
- moved module paths to 2 variables defined on top of the spec

Tue Apr 13 08:56:15 UTC 2010 -

- Updated to rsyslog version 5.4.0 (v5-stable). This version begins
  a new stable series based on the 5.3.x series, which has been
  proven rather well in practice. The new 5.4.0 contains fixes for
  all known problems. See ChangeLog file for a detailed history.
  The main new feature is speed: several optimizations were done,
  including support for epoll in tcp listeners.
- Added new and to the file list.
- Recompressed original tar.gz source archive using bzip2.

Wed Sep  9 21:36:16 CEST 2009 -

- Added read-only RSYSLOGD_NATIVE_VERSION sysconfig/syslog variable,
  that is set to the native mode version number for the -c parameter
  while every installation and used in the /etc/init.d/syslog script,
  except the user overrides this default in RSYSLOGD_COMPAT_VERSION.

Wed Sep  2 20:15:28 CEST 2009 -

- Updated to rsyslog version 4.4.1 (v4-stable), a bug-fixing release,
  providing some important fixes for issues that have only been
  detected after the beta phase. Some of them are serious (like a
  segfault when UDP messageforwarding is activated), so users of
  4.4.0 are urged to upgrade to this release. Changelog for 4.4.1:
  * features requiring Java are automatically disabled if Java
    is not present (thanks to Michael Biebl for his help!)
  * bugfix: invalid double-quoted PRI, among others in outgoing
    messages. This causes grief with all receivers.
    Bug tracker:
  * bugfix: Java testing tools were required, even if testbench
    was disabled. This resulted in build errors if no Java was
    present on the build system, even though none of the selected
    option actually required Java. (I forgot to backport a similar
    fix to newer releases).
  * bugfix (backport): omfwd segfault. Note that the orginal (higher
    version) patch states this happens only when debugging mode is
    turned on. That statement is wrong: if debug mode is turned off,
    the message is not being emitted, but the division by zero in
    the actual parameters still happens.
- Removed jave2-devel-packages from build requires again

Tue Sep  1 11:34:12 CEST 2009 -

- Updated to rsyslog version 4.4.0, the actual stable 4.4.x series.
  It provides several bugfixes, performance improvements and new
  features: It adds generic network stream server for syslog, the
  capability to rebind the send socket of the UDP output section,
  allows multiple tcp listeners, multiple recipients in ommail,
  new plugins as omprog, improved documentation and testbench
  with a config switch. Please review ChangeLog file for details.
- Removed obsolete moddirs patch (included in 4.4.0)
- Added java2-devel-packages to BuildRequires (for test suite)
- Enabled omprog and omtemplate plugins, added them and the
  lmstrmsrv plugin to the base-plugins file list.

Mon Apr 20 17:35:16 CEST 2009 -

- Improved config file comments about usage of additional
  modules provided in separate rsyslog-module packages.

- Security fix to honor $AllowedSender settings (bnc#457273).
- Security fix [DoS] from 3.20.2 to emit a discard message every
  minute only (when DisallowWarning enabled) instead of every time;
  this prevernts an attacker can fill the disk (bnc#457273).
