-> Bugfixes
- File Based Configuration: Fixed a bug reading general options from File configuration.

* 2016-01-20 / build 464
-> Features
- DB Monitor: Added option "Write LastDBIndex at frequent intervals" to support saving the LastDBIndex while processing data records. By default the LastIDIndex is only written after all database records have been processed.

-> Bugfixes
- File Based Configuration: Fixed an issue reading and writing into correct data directories when using custom locations.
- EventLog Monitor V2: Fixed problem handling Eventlog Subscription on failures (For Example when using Syslog TCP and target became unavailable). The problem was introduced a few builds before due changed supscription handling.

* 2016-01-04 / build 462
-> Features
- SSL/TLS: Updated to OpenSSL 1.0.2e.

-> Bugfixes
- DB Monitor: Fixed select statement issue with LastDBIndex (caused by changes from build 461).
- Configuration client: When deleting an item in a datagrid, the Confirm/reset Button become clickable now to save or reset the changes.

* 2015-12-17 / build 461
-> Features
- DB Monitor: LastDBIndex can now be a 64Bit number (Was limited to 32Bit before).

-> Bugfixes
- DB Monitor: Fixed loading/saving LastDBIndex value when Service runs in fileconfig mode.
- Configuration client: Added missing password encryption checkbox in DB Monitor configuration.
- Configuration client: Added missing LastDBIndex in DB Monitor configuration.
- Configuration client: Fixed timestamp for "EventLog Legacy Format" INSERT
- Configuration client: Fixed invisible encryption checkbox for password fields (Like ODBC Action)

* 2015-11-25 / build 460
-> Features
- SSL/TLS: Updated to OpenSSL 1.0.2d.
- SSL/TLS: When using TLS Mode x509/Name, permitted peers will also checked against the certificate Subject Alternative Name (SAN) now.

-> Bugfixes
- Syslog Server: Fixed a problem receiving RFC3195RAW messages.

* 2015-11-17 / build 459
-> Features
- File Monitor: Added regular expressions support for Message Separators. More details on supported regular expressions can be found here: ... 27(v=vs.90).aspx
- File Monitor: Added Options to prepend or append message separators to the message. When using regex message separators, it might be necessary to include the message separator into the message.
- EventLog Monitor V2: Added new Option "Wait time after action failure" which specifies the wait time after an action error occured. Without the wait time, the subscription would immediately hit again. It is most likely that the action failure was caused by network problems, so a wait time of (default value) 15 seconds is a reasonable default.

-> Bugfixes
- File Action: When using Custom Format, a trailing NULL Byte was written into the file. This was considered a bug, so the NULL Byte is not written anymore.
- EventLog Monitor V2: When using the subscription method (Default), Events could get lost when an action failed to process. Action error handling has been corrected now and works simular like in EventLog Monitor V1.
- Configuration client: Fixed an issue of unwanted LastRecord saving when changing eventlog channels settings.
- Configuration client: The little "Save" Button has been changed to a "Confirm" which is more precisely.
- Configuration client: Corrected Min/Max values for General->Queue Limit Setting.

* 2015-11-09 / build 458
-> Bugfixes
- Configuration client: Removed invisible click areas for all checkboxes and radio buttons.
- Configuration client: Fixed loading of "Processed Files" in File Monitor when running in file config format.
- File Based Configuration: Fixed an issue detecting if data state files need to be reloaded.

* 2015-11-04 / build 457
-> Bugfixes
- Syslog Server TCP: Fixed message timeout handling when no message separator was enabled.
- SSL/TLS: Actions with support for SSL/TLS (like Send Syslog Action) could fail to send messages if the recipient closed the connection during meantime. The handling of closed connections has been hardened now when TLS/SSL is enabled.
- File Based Configuration: Fixed problem reading of Rule and ActionCount properly introduced due changes in the configuration client of build 456.

* 2015-10-28 / build 456
-> Features
- Syslog Action: Added wait time doubling option for the Diskqueue feature. When enabled, the configured wait time will be doubled until the doubling limit is reached.
- Syslog Action: Added random wait time delay option for the Diskqueue feature. When enabled, a random wait time (up to the configured maximum) will be added to the configured wait time.
- Syslog Action: Added Overrun prevention delay option for the Diskqueue feature. When enabled, the action will sleep for the configured delay between each syslog message.

-> Bugfixes
- Configuration Client: Changed error handling when exporting configuration in file format.
- Syslog Action: Fixed an issue when diskqueue files were corrupt. Now corrupted entries are skipped properly.
- Syslog Action: In some cases when the Action was in diskqueue mode, it could happen that the internal retry failed. Cached syslog messages wouldn't be send until the service restart.

* 2015-10-23 / build 455
-> Features
- Services TestMode: Added a testmode for Services, currently EventLog Monitor V1 & V2 and File Monitor are supported. When enabling the testmode for a certain service, it will process it's Events/Files over and over again. So only use this setting for testing purpose.
- File Based Configuration: Added support for file includes. The feature can be enabled by setting one or both options in the Client Options called "Create individual configuration files for Services" and "Create individual configuration files for RuleSets". When enabled, the configuration client will split Services and/or Rulesets into separated files. The main configuration file will include these files by a pattern. The Service itself is able to read includes within includes up to a depth level to 10. When using custom (hand written) configuration with includes, the configuration client will only be able to read them. However the client will not be able to maintain (Save) the custom configuration structure.
- Thirdparty: Updated OpenSSL library to version 1.0.1p
- Command line: Added handler for CTRL+C when running the Service in console mode

-> Bugfixes
- Command line: Fixed handling when using more than one command line option
- File Based Configuration: Better error handling when configfile is missing or not accessible.
- Configuration Client: Fixed incorrect trimming of spaces at the end of text variables (problem only affected file based configurations)
