A note on Win32 and x64 Edition
MonitorWare Agent is available for 2 platforms. Since Build 333, bot Editions are unified in one Setup file, this includes the win32 platform and the x64 platform. If you had win32 installed before, your installation will be upgraded to x64 automatically without loss of any configurations.

Below the change since version 5.1:

:!: 2008-03-06 / build 347
:arrow: Features
- Filter Engine: Added a new Extended Property type for number based properties, so you can filter for custom properties as numbers.
- General SNMP Changes: Updated all NET-SNMP MIBS which are shipped with MWAgent, and also introduced custom enterprise MIBS for Monitorware Agent. These Mibs will now be used by default in the SendSNMP Action, to generate useful traps.

:arrow: Bugfixes
- Send SNMP Action: Fixed a bug which randomly caused the SNMP Action to fail reading the configured variable OIDs.
- SNMP Mib Browser: The Configuration Client failed to read the mibs in some cases ( For example the quote (") character in the default value caused such a problem). This has been fixed now!
- Configuration Client: Added missing filters for the CPU/MEM Monitor.

:!: 2008-02-29 / build 346
:arrow: Features
- File Monitor: Added full support for UTF8 Textfiles which means we now support UTF8, UTF16 and normal ASCII text files.

:!: 2008-02-26 / build 345
:arrow: Features
- New Service SNMP Monitor: Added a new Service to monitor SNMP Devices using the SNMP Get Method. There are many snmp capable devices out there which can be monitored with this new service. More Information about this Service can be found in the documentation very soon.
- Upgraded MS C-Runtime: The Service Core has been updated to use the latest Microsoft C-Runtime library.

:arrow: Bugfixes
- Forward Syslog Action: Fixed a bug in the RealSource Option, the proper "source" was not set correctly after opening a syslog session.

:!: 2008-01-15 / build 344
:arrow: Bugfixes
- Core Engine: Corrected incorrect client license counter, which could lead to smaller number of licenses than purchased
- Syslog UDP Receiver: In very seldom cases empty UDP Messages could be accepted and processed. This will not happen anymore.
- SNMPTrap Receiver: Fixed Source Property in the SNMP Trap Receive, the correct source is now set.

:!: 2008-01-08 / build 343
:arrow: Features
- Queue Manager: Added a new major feature, Queue Manager Diskcache. This feature enables the Agent to cache items in its internal queue on disk using a fixed data file. Warning, this feature will slow down processing speed depending on your hard disk speed. This feature can give you an additional level of failover support. More details will be found in the beta manual very soon.

:arrow: Bugfixes
- PortProbe: A bug introduced in the 5.x Version caused invalid messages generated by the PortProbe.

:!: 2007-12-18 / build 342
:arrow: Features
- Send Email Action: Added support for SSL over SMTP. Yes this means you can actually use a secured connection to SMTP Servers. Note that the common default port for SMTP over SSL is 465. If you enable SSL Support and use a normal SMTP Server, the email delivery will fail.

:arrow: Bugfixes
- Configuration Client: There was a bug in the grid which prevented you from inserting properties. This one has been fixed now.

:!: 2007-12-17 / build 341
:arrow: Features
- InterActive SyslogViewer: With the release of MonitorWare Agent 5.2, we are introducing a new tool for Realtime Syslog viewing called "Interactive SyslogViewer". This application is written in Microsoft .Net which means, the .Net Framework will also be installed with the setup. We will offer a .net free setup as well on final release. The Rolling Beta Release will only be the version including the framework.

The new application has most of the features from the older application, and also new possibilities. The utility can also view and filter data from a MonitorWare valid database. More information will be found in the beta manual soon.

:arrow: Bugfixes
- Internal TCP Handling: This crash occurred very seldom under stress circumstances and Syslog TCP Forwarder was used (persistent connection). The TCP Close handing has been hardened against this crash, but you might find an error event in the application EventLog when this issue occurs.
- Syslog TCP Receiver: Fixed a bug in the ReceiverLoop of the Syslog TCP Server. Messages above 8192 Bytes could fail to receive correctly.
- EventLog Monitor V2: Is now correctly received by the SETP Server.
- Syslog Cache handling: Fixed a bug where the Syslog Cache did not work when the Agent was started, and the Syslog target already was down.
