Below the change since version 3.1:

* 2015-11-25 / build 142
-> 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 141
-> Features
- 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
- 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 140
-> 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 139
-> 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 138.

* 2015-10-28 / build 138
-> 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.

* 2015-10-16 / build 137
-> 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.

* 2015-10-13 / build 136
-> Features
- 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.
