      Release Notes: This release has a new persistent file-based message cache/queue mechanism. The queue is serviced by a background thread, and the cache is disk-based so that data will not be lost in the event of a crash. The filtering facility has been implemented for filters specified in an XML format on disk. The file format will be documented in an upcoming release of the manual. Triggering capability has been added in conjunction with the filtering sub-system. When a record matches a filter with an associated system shell script, the script is executed in a background thread.

            Release Notes: Time offset and time zone fields are now filled in properly. Loadable logger modules are now working. Four logger modules are supplied, including file, syslog, laf, and xdas loggers. The default logger is syslog. The Linux kernel submit module is available for Linux systems that have the Light-weight Audit Framework sub-system built in. Windows registry configuration is available; properties are overridden by the xdasd.conf file. Configuration property values on Windows may contain environment variables which will be expanded as the values are read in from a file or registry.
