there are lot of new features in the 3.0/3.1 branches and that branch is much more actively maintained

Any chance of this being backported to Lucid? According to http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/syslog-ng, it comes with 2.0.9 which according to http://www.syslog.org/forum/syslog-ng/syslog-using-99-of-a-cpu/ (a post of mine, if I may say so), it is rather ancient and buggy.

Version 3.1.1 is already in Maverick. Version 3.1.2 was released just around feature freeze time, so while it's in Debian testing, it is not yet synced to Ubuntu. I'll add a separate bug report about it.

Is it going to be backported to 10.04 LTS?

I think, that this bug should be closed, as Maverick already has syslog-ng 3.1.X, and requesting a backport for Lucid is a separate process.

      It seems to work for me. Very low load so far. Will let it loose
for a bit. I had to change the config file a bit but that was to be
expected.

Thanks!
