Hi everybody :)

I've just uploaded version 4.2.0 which comes with many new features.
Below if the ChangeLog entry and there's also the news item on the
homepage: <http://collectd.org/news.shtml#news42>

2007-10-27, Version 4.2.0
 * collectd: The new config option `Include' lets you include other
   configfiles and thus split up your config into smaller parts. This
   may be especially interesting for the snmp plugin to keep the data
   definitions separate from the host definitions.
 * ipvs plugin: The new `ipvs' plugin collects IPVS connection
   statistics (number of connections, octets and packets for each
   service and destination). Thanks to Sebastian Harl for this plugin.
 * memcached plugin: The new `memcached' plugin connects to a memcached
   daemon process and collects statistics of this distributed caching
   system. Thanks to Antony Dovgal for contributing this plugin.
 * nginx plugin: The new `nginx' plugin reads the status page of an
   nginx daemon and saves the handled connections and requests.
 * perl plugin: Many changes, including the added `EnableDebugger'
   config option which lets you debug your Perl plugins more easily.
 * rrdtool plugin: Use the thread-safe RRD-library if available. Try to
   be more thread-safe otherwise by locking calls to the library.
 * snmp plugin: Added the options `Scale' and `Shift' to Data-blocks to
   correct the values returned by SNMP-agents. If a <data> block is
   defined as `table' the instance is now optional. The sequence number
   is used as the type-instance in this case. The new `InstancePrefix'
   option allows to add arbitrary prefixes to the type-instance.
 * tcpconns plugin: The new `tcpconns' plugin collects the number of
   certain TCP connections and what state they're in. This can be used
   to see how many connections your FTP server has to handle or how
   many outgoing connections your mailserver has open.
