liblogging 1.0.6 [download]

We have released liblogging 1.0.6.

This release mostly provides fixes for different issues, like a small memory leak, build detection for journal libraries and many more. For full details, see the changelog below.

sha256sum: 338c6174e5c8652eaa34f956be3451f7491a4416ab489aef63151f802b00bf93

v1.0.6 2017-03-06
- fix small memory leaks in libstdlog
  each open/close leaked a couple of bytes; this was no problem, except if
  they were called very often. However, it was a problem when using memory
  debuggers, which rightfully complained.
- fix BSD build
- enhancement:  sigsafe_printf now recognizes the "j" length modifier
  Thanks to David A. Bright for implementing this
- fix: build_file_line and build_syslog_frame call the __stdlog_print_*
  functions incorrectly
  Change these functions so that they call the __stdlog_print_* functions
  with the correct buffer size.
  see also:
  Thanks to David A. Bright for the patch.
- Implement a STDLOG_PID option
  ... to specify that each log message should be tagged with the process
  identifier as well as the ident.
  Thanks to David A. Bright for implementing this
- bugfix: potentialSEGV in the stdlog_sigsafe_string formatter
  if NULL pointer was passed in
  Thanks to David A. Bright for the patch
- bugfix: stdlog_sigsafe_printf mis-handles an int or unsigned int
  Thanks to David A. Bright for the patch
- build system: auto-detect presence of journal libraries
  simplifies build for most users. Many complained on mailing list
  about missing journal dependency. Now by default we disable it if
  the libs are not found, what usually is the right thing to do.

v1.0.4 2014-04-03
- fix build problems on some platforms (namely RHEL/CENTOS 5)
- add --disable-man pages ./configure option

  from git is desired.

  This permits building on RHEL/CENTOs 5 with stock autotools.

LibLogging 1.0.2 released

liblogging 1.0.2 [download]

We have released liblogging 1.0.2.

This is the first release with a basically feature-complete liblogging-stdlog component. It is an enhanced replacement for the syslog(3) API which supports multiple channels, signal-safeness, and logging drivers for syslog, the systemd journal, unix sockets, and files. While this version is suitable for use with applications, we still invite comments and code reviews.

The man page for the standard logging library is available at
Please report issues and feature requests to
Feedback of any kind is highly appreciated.

Note: if the journal driver is to be build (enabled by default), a new dependency libsystemd-journal exists. This is the required to use the journal API. You can turn off building the journal driver via the --disable-journal configure option.
