    symbols.
  - Make sure that 64-bit file offsets are used on 32-bit systems.

[3.11.0]: https://github.com/logrotate/logrotate/compare/3.10.0...3.11.0

## [3.10.0] - 2016-08-03

  - Legacy Makefile renamed to Makefile.legacy, will be removed eventually.
  - Fix 'make dist' and 'make distcheck' to produce a usable release tarball.
  - Fix 'olddir' usage with wildcard in the middle of path in the pattern
    definition when the pattern did not match any log file.
  - Remove half-rotated files when rotation of particular log file is skipped
    because of an error during copy or compression.

[3.10.0]: https://github.com/logrotate/logrotate/compare/3.9.2...3.10.0

## [3.9.2] - 2016-01-20

  - Upstream moved to GitHub: <https://github.com/logrotate/logrotate>.
  - Add support for %M, %S and %V in "dateext" directive.
  - Fix bad filename in subject of email when "compress" and "maillast" is
    used.
  - Allow rotating files created before 1996.
  - Fix compilation errors on NetBSD caused by "array subscript has
    type 'char' in config.c"
  - Fix matching subdirectories on BSD systems for patterns like
    "*/log" in situation where logrotate tried to match "foo/log" even when
    "foo" has not been a directory.
  - Fix logging dates in debug messages.
  - Remove state file entries for logs which do not exist and have not been
    rotated for more than a year.
  - Fix poor performance with big state file.
  - Support logging to syslog by using '-l syslog'.
  - Allow running test-suite using dash.

[3.9.2]: https://github.com/logrotate/logrotate/compare/r3-9-1...3.9.2

## [3.9.1] - 2015-04-03

  - Fix off-by-one error which can lead to crash when copytruncate is used.

[3.9.1]: https://github.com/logrotate/logrotate/compare/r3-9-0...r3-9-1

## [3.9.0] - 2015-04-03

  - Fix crash when using long dateformat. [nmerdan]
  - Add support for %H dateformat. [czchen]
  - Fix regression introduced in 3.8.9 when when rotating multiple
    logs when one of them is missing.
  - In the debug mode, do not skip the code-path which handles the case when
    the last rotation does not exist. [Sergey Vidishev]
  - Show more precise description when "log does not need rotating".
  - Add new -l option to log verbose output to file. The file is overwritten
    on every logrotate execution.
  - Allow rotation of sparse files with copytruncate.

[3.9.0]: https://github.com/logrotate/logrotate/compare/r3-8-9...r3-9-0

## [3.8.9] - 2015-02-13

  - Add new directive "createolddir" and "nocreateolddir". These directives
    can be used to create the directory specified by olddir with particular
    "mode", "owner" and "group".
  - Continue with rotation even when first log from logset is removed
    during the rotation.
  - Fix crash on BSD systems introduced in 3.8.8 caused by different qsort_r
    function. Function qsort is now used instead.

  - Fix compilation with musl-libc.
  - Add experimental 'renamecopy' directive to allow 'olddir' on different
    physical device. See the "man logrotate" for more information.

[3.8.9]: https://github.com/logrotate/logrotate/compare/r3-8-8...r3-8-9

## [3.8.8] - 2014-10-16

  - Add support for building using autotools/automake. Using "./autogen.sh",
    "./configure" and "make" is now preferred way how to build logrotate.
    Old Makefile remains available, but it is deprecated and will be removed
    in the future. Please report any problem related to new build system.
  - Add support for systems which do not support fork (use vfork instead)
    and madvise.
  - Fix bug when wrong log file has been removed in case of dateext and
    dateformat %d-%m-%Y.
  - Do not expect that the name of root account is 'root'.
  - Do not stop rotation with an error when olddir and log file
    are on different devices and copy or copytruncate is used.
  - Return an error code when parent directory of log does not exist,
    "su" directive is not used, logrotate is running as root and missingok
    is not specified. [vcizek]
  - Prepend error printed by compression program with the log name even when
    the compression program exits with zero exit code.

[3.8.8]: https://github.com/logrotate/logrotate/compare/r3-8-7...r3-8-8

## [3.8.7] - 2013-10-10

  - Fixed --force/-f option handling together with "size" directive
    (3.8.5 regression).
  - Use "logrotate_tmp_t" context for SELinux tests and if this context does
    not exist, skip SELinux related tests.

[3.8.7]: https://github.com/logrotate/logrotate/compare/r3-8-6...r3-8-7

## [3.8.6] - 2013-07-31

  - Fixed memory corruption caused by rotation directory which does not
    exist with "sharedscripts" together with "prerotate" script.

[3.8.6]: https://github.com/logrotate/logrotate/compare/r3-8-5...r3-8-6

## [3.8.5] - 2013-06-10

  - Improved rotation during daylight saving time and between timezone
    changes.
  - Fixed ACL setting problem caused by ext3 erroneously reporting ENOSYS
    instead of ENOSUP.
  - Do not continue with rotation if state file is corrupted.
  - Make logrotate.status creation atomic.
  - Allow "hourly" rotation. See manpage for more information.
  - Use "/bin/echo" in tests. Fixes tests execution in Dash.
  - Do no try to parse config files bigger than 16MB.
  - Improved manpage consistency and formatting.
  - Fix race condition between acl_set_fd() and fchmod().

[3.8.5]: https://github.com/logrotate/logrotate/compare/r3-8-4...r3-8-5

## [3.8.4] - 2013-04-30

  - Added --version command line option
  - Disable ACL tests if logrotate is not compiled WITH_ACL support or if
    ACLs are not supported by the system running tests
  - Disable SELinux tests if logrotate is not compiled WITH_SELINUX support
    or if SELinux is not supported by the system running tests
  - Fixed bug which prevented skipping particular log file config
    if the config contained errors.
  - Fixed skipping of configs containing firstaction/lastaction scripts
    with '}' character in case of error before these scripts.
  - Support also 'K' unit for *size directives.
  - Added preremove option to let admin to do something with the old logs
    before they are removed by logrotate.
  - Fixed possible loop in tabooext parsing.
  - Move code to set SELinux context before compressLogFile calls to create
    compressed log files with the proper context.
  - Call prerotate/postrotate script only for really rotated files in
    nosharedscripts mode (as stated in man page).

[3.8.4]: https://github.com/logrotate/logrotate/compare/r3-8-3...r3-8-4

## [3.8.3] - 2012-10-04

  - Fixed setting "size" bigger than 4GB on 32bit architectures
  - Do not overwrite mode set by "create" option when using ACL. "create"
    directive is now not mixed up with ACLs. If you use "create" in config
    file and log file has some ACLs set, ACLs are not kept and are
    overwritten by the mode set in "create" directive.
  - Mode argument in "create" directive can be omitted. Only owner and group
    is set in this case. Check man page for more info.

[3.8.3]: https://github.com/logrotate/logrotate/compare/r3.8.2...r3-8-3

## [3.8.2] - 2012-08-01

  - show error and ignore config if '{' is not present after log files
    declaration
  - support whitespaces in compressoptions directive
  - support for tilde expansion in config files
  - 'su' directive does not affect script execution - scripts
    are executed as a root if 'su' directive is present
  - fixed mail sending for 'mailfirst', 'dateext' and 'delaycompress'
    combination
  - do not use gzip/gunzip from /usr/local on Solaris
  - add O_NOFOLLOW when opening files as safeguard against symlink tricks.
    Symlinks rotation is now officially unsupported. It didn't work
    as expected in the past anyway.
  - do not run external programs with uid != euid
  - fixed potential bad-free when ACL is used
  - Do not include alloca.h on NetBSD, since alloca() is declared in
    stdlib.h there
  - 13 new tests added

  - added "dateyesterday" option (see man page)
  - fixed crash when config file had exactly 4096*N bytes
  - added WITH_ACL make option to link against -lacl and preserve ACLs
    during rotation
  - added "su" option to define user/group for rotation. Logrotate now
    skips directories which are world writable or writable by group
    which is not "root" unless "su" directive is used.
  - fixed CVE-2011-1098: race condition by creation of new files
  - fixed possible shell injection when using "shred" directive (CVE-2011-1154)
