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 5.2:

:!: 2008-11-07 / build 361
:arrow: Features
- Added Full Support for all new fields in EventLog Monitor V2. This also includes also new properties.
- Implemented new Filter Type: IPFilter - using this filter it is possible to filter for IP Ranges. The IP Filter can basically work on any property, but I recommend to only use it on the %source% property, as we usually can be sure that this is contains a valid IP Address or hostname. The IP Filter can filter against hostnames and IP Addresses, hostnames are automatically resolved using the internal DNSCache (for obvious performance reasons).
- Changed Version from 5.3 to 6.0 as this release is becomming the next major MonitorWare Agent Version. Please note that this Rolling beta Version will continue to run with your current license key until 2009-01-01.

:!: 2008-09-22 / build 356
:arrow: Features
- Eventlog Monitor: Added two new properties by customer request, %user% which contains the username of an event and %user_sid% which contains the security identifier of the user.
- Eventlog Monitor: Added another property called %recordnum% which contains the internal number of the current eventlog entry.
- Eventlog Monitor: Added new Option "Always search for the last processed Event using the Checksum". It uses the checksum feature (needs to be enabled first) to track and find the last processed Event. This is useful for netapp devices, for more details see the following article: ... syslog.php
- Write Eventlog Action: Added support to write your own custom Eventlogtypes. The custom eventlog will automatically be created when the action is used the first time.

:!: 2008-08-06 / build 354
:arrow: Bugfixes
- Debug Logging: A bug in the debug facility caused file handles to leak when debug logging was enabled with the circular logging option. This has been fixed now.

:!: 2008-07-25 / build 353
:arrow: Bugfixes
- File Monitor: When the Option to "Allow Directories or read multiple files" option was enabled, a search handle was leaked during each iteration of the File Monitor Service. This caused an instability of the Agent depending on the growing number of used handles.

:!: 2008-07-09 / build 352
:arrow: Features
- New Service: Added new Service called Relp Listener. Relp (The Reliable Event Logging Protocol) is a new protocol designed by Rainer Gerhards. The new Service does not support many options yet, but fully works with other Relp-enabled applications like Rsyslog
- New Action: Added new Action called Send Relp which also utilitzies the new Relp protocol. The action also works with other Relp-enabled applications like Rsyslog.

:!: 2008-06-23 / build 351
:arrow: Bugfixes
- Filter Engine: A bug was fixed that caused problems loading the CustomerID and SystemID filters. They are now correctly loaded aynd processed.

:!: 2008-06-19 / build 350
:arrow: Features
- Core Engine: Added new encoding options for UTF8 and UTF16. These encodings can be chosen in many actions like the Forward Syslog Action, the WriteFile Action or the SendEmail Action. The WriteFile Action also has the additional option to write UTF16 files now.
- Configuration Client: Added support to export and import Services by using the XML Format.
- SyslogViewer: Added support for additional encoding when exporting syslog messages into a file. UTF-8, UTF-8 (with preamble), UTF-16 (Little Endian), UTF-16 (Big Endian) and ANSI are available as encoding.

:arrow: Bugfixes
- Configuration Client: Fixed minor issues with the XML Import/Export function of the Client.
