The Rolling Beta program is open, features and bugfixes will be added continuously.
The changelog below helps you to keep track on the changes.
Feel free to test this new rolling beta version, if you are experiencing any problems,
kindly let us know via support email ( or this forum.

A note on Win32 and x64 Edition
WinSyslog is available for both platforms. Since Build 448 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 8.2:

:!: 2008-11-07 / build 467
:arrow: Features
- 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 8.3 to 9.0 as this release is becomming the next major WinSyslog Version. Please note that this Rolling beta Version will continue to run with your current license key until 2009-01-01.
- 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 463
: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.
- 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.

: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.
- Filter Engine: A bug was fixed that caused problems loading the CustomerID and SystemID filters. They are now correctly loaded aynd processed.
- Configuration Client: Fixed minor issues with the XML Import/Export function of the Client.
