-Version 5.8.3 [V5-stable] (rgerhards), 2011-06-??
+Version 5.8.3 [V5-stable] (rgerhards), 2011-07-11
- systemd support: set stdout/stderr to null - thx to Lennart for the patch
- added support for the ":omusrmsg:" syntax in configuring user messages
- added support for the ":omfile:" syntax in configuring user messages
+ Note: previous outchannel syntax will generate a warning message. This
+ may be surprising to some users, but it is quite urgent to alert them
+ of the new syntax as v6 can no longer support the previous one.
Version 5.8.2 [V5-stable] (rgerhards), 2011-06-21
- bugfix: problems in failover action handling
