syslog-ng is an enhanced log daemon, supporting a wide range of input
and output methods: syslog, unstructured text, message queues,
databases (SQL and NoSQL alike) and more.
Key features:
* receive and send RFC3164 and RFC5424 style syslog messages
* work with any kind of unstructured data
* receive and send JSON formatted messages
* classify and structure logs with builtin parsers (csv-parser(),
db-parser(), etc.)
* normalize, crunch and process logs as they flow through the system
* hand on messages for further processing using message queues (like
AMQP), files or databases (like PostgreSQL or MongoDB).
This package provides the SQL destination plugin, which allows one to
log system messages to a multitude of SQL databases (including, but
not limited to MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite).

syslog-ng (3.5.6-2) unstable; urgency=high
[ Gergely Nagy <> ]
* Use dh_installinit --restart-after-upgrade instead of hand-coding
essentially the same thing, badly.
* Urgency high, as this moderates the effect of #757903.

syslog-ng (3.5.6-1) unstable; urgency=high
[ Gergely Nagy <> ]
* New upstream release, fixing a major memory leak (thus the urgency)
* Loosen the shlibs dependency on syslog-ng-core, so that
syslog-ng-incubator need not be rebuilt for every single syslog-ng
* Fixed a typo in debian/rules.
2014-07-26 - Gergely Nagy <>
syslog-ng (3.5.5-2) unstable; urgency=high
[ Gergely Nagy <> ]
* Explicitly disable linux capability support on non-linux platforms,
instead of relying on auto-detection (which doesn't always work).

syslog-ng (3.5.5-1) unstable; urgency=high
[ Gergely Nagy <> ]

* Include libsyslog-ng-test.a and the related pkg-config file in the
syslog-ng-dev package.
* Added an upstart init script (mostly for the benefit of older Ubuntu
releases and backports).
* syslog-ng-mod-redis no longer (mistakenly) recommends geoip-database.
