WinSyslog 4.2 Final Released

Adiscon today announced the immediate availability of WinSyslog 4.2.
This new Version offers a new benefits and improvements. Most importantly, Asian language support has been greatly enhanced.

The most important enhancements are:

  • German and French are now available consistently throughout the product screens.
  • Much improved Japanese language support. The output encoding (EUC, JIS, SJIS) can now be selected for email and syslog forward actions .
  • Incoming message can now be filtered based on a lower, higher or equal syslog priority. Previously, only an exact match was supported. This greatly simplifies rule creation in common scenarios.
  • Replacement characters are now supported in the “Start Program” action. This allows e.g. to pass the source system or message content to an external program.
  • Improved syslog over TCP receiver – offers greater compatibility and more options.
  • Support for debugging complex rule bases (log file can be written).
  • Interactive Syslog Server performance optimized. It can now be instructed not to scroll incoming messages as they arrive – often requested to save client machine performance.
  • Support for SMTP authentication added.
  • File logger does now allow concurrent reads and writes to the log file.So it can be reviewed e.g. with notepad while it is constantly being written.
  • Added additional support for high traffic environments. Now runs even better with very large message bursts.
  • WinSyslog Web Access allows easy syslog message browsing via the web.
  • Support for Windows XP visual styles added.
