I have updated syslog-ng on cygwin.com to the latest stable release
1.6.11.  This is just a minor update which contains scalability
improvements and a change to the documentation.

syslog-ng, as the name shows, is a syslogd replacement, but with new
functionality for the new generation. The original syslogd allows
messages only to be sorted based on priority/facility pairs; syslog-ng
adds the possibility to filter based on message contents using regular
expressions. The new configuration scheme is intuitive and powerful.
Forwarding logs over TCP and remembering all forwarding hops makes it
ideal for firewalled environments.

Please read /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/syslog-ng.README for postinstall
information.  I also recommend to visit the /usr/share/doc/syslog-ng/
directory and the man pages "syslog-ng" and "syslog-ng.conf".


To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link on
the http://cygwin.com/ web page.  This downloads setup.exe to your
system.  Then, run setup and answer all of the questions.
