2.0.229 Nov 2019 19:25 minor feature: Add missing remote:port info in error message when failing to send to a remote syslog server. Assert() in fprintlog_successive(), caused by never being reset in fprintlog_first(), found by @westermo.

2.015 Nov 2019 17:42 major feature: This release represents a major refresh of the sysklogd project.

Also included is a user library and a replacement for syslog.h to enable new features in RFC5424.
