+Version 5.1.4 [DEVEL] (rgerhards), 2009-08-20
+- legacy syslog parser changed so that it now accepts date stamps in
+ wrong case. Some devices seem to create them and I do not see any harm
+ in supporting that.
+- added $InputTCPMaxListeners directive - permits to specify how many
+ TCP servers shall be possible (default is 20).
+- bugfix: memory leak with some input modules. Those inputs that
+ use parseAndSubmitMsg() leak two small memory blocks with every message.
+ Typically, those process only relatively few messages, so the issue
+ does most probably not have any effect in practice.
+- bugfix: if tcp listen port could not be created, no error message was
+ emitted
- bugfix: discard action did not work (did not discard messages)
- bugfix: discard action caused segfault
- bugfix: potential segfault in output file writer (omfile)
