    - Introduced the "Property Replacer" and enhanced it features. The property replacer is a generic component that allows you to merge properties from the event processed to e.g. the email subject line or a log file line. It is a central component that is used as often in the product as possible. The idea behind the property replacer is that there is often need to specify a value from the event processed.

  • Increased Useability - Minor other WinSyslog Client enhancments to increase it's useablility.

  • Stability - Minor other stability changes.

  • Bug Fixes

    - Problems with files larger then 4 GB in the Filelogging Action - When you restarted the WinSyslog, those files were overwritten from the beginning.
    - The Database Action (And maybe others as well) could fail with an unknown error (EventID 114) when the SETP Server received messages from older Clients. This has been corrected now.
    - The password in the database action view was not saved if encryption was not enabled.
    - In the File Logging action it could cause high CPU usage when Custom Fileformat was used.
    - In ODBC write which always persisted the NTSeverity as a constant value (4) to the database.
