ChangeLog
---------
2013-08-18, Version 5.4.0
  * collectd: The "LoadPlugin" config option no longer attempts to load
    plugins twice. If more than one "LoadPlugin" statement or block is
    encountered, only the first will have any effect.
  * collectd: The "AutoLoadPlugin" option allows to automatically load
    plugins for which a configuration is found.
  * collectd: The "WriteQueueLimitHigh" and "WriteQueueLimitLow" options
    allow collectd to drop values when under stress, to avoid running out
    of memory. Thanks to Yves Mettier for his patch.
  * amqp plugin: The "GraphiteSeparateInstances" and
    "GraphiteAlwaysAppendDS" options have been added. Thanks to Laurent
    for the patch.
  * aquaero plugin: This new plugin reads various metrics, e.g. fan
    speeds and temperatures, from Aquaero 5, a fan and water cooling
    control panel. Thanks to Alex Deymo for his patch.
  * curl plugin: The "MeasureResponseCode" option has been added. Thanks
    to Jan Matějka for his patch.
  * curl_json plugin: Support for UNIX domain sockets and array wildcards
    has been added. Thanks to Jim Radford for his patch.
  * curl_xml plugin: Support for long URLs has been improved.
  * cgroups plugin: This new plugin collects CPU accounting information
    for processes in a cgroup. Thanks to Michael Stapelberg for his patch.
  * df plugin: The "ValuesAbsolute" and "ValuesPercentage" options have
    been added. Thanks to Vedran Bartonicek for the patch.
  * exec plugin: Do UID / GID lookups before forking. This should prevent
    a race condition in the NSS library. Thanks to Ceri Storey for the
    patch.
  * lvm plugin: This new plugin collects size information from Linux'
    Logical Volume Manager (LVM). Thanks to Chad Malfait for his work.

    consumption and temperatures of Intel's Many-Integrated-Core (MIC)
    architecture, such as Xeon Phi cards. Thanks to Evan Felix for his
    work.
  * netlink plugin: This plugin has been converted to use the supported
    "libmnl" library. Thanks to Andreas Henriksson for his patch.
  * nginx plugin: Collection of accepted and handled connections has been
    added. Thanks to Patrick Shan for his patch.
  * sigrok plugin: This new plugin collects metrics from sigrok, a signal
    processing framework reading various hardware devices, from light
    meters to spectrum analyzers. Thanks to Bert Vermeulen for his patch.
  * statsd plugin: This new plugin listens to a UDP socket and reads
    metrics in the StatsD format.
  * varnish plugin: Many additional metrics have been added. Thanks to
    Nick Stenning for his patch.
  * write_graphite plugin: Support for "UDP" has been added. Thanks to
    Javier Maestro for his patch.
