I've just packed and uploaded two new patch releases. The changes are as
follows. Changes to the iptables, postgresql and snmp plugins are
relevant for 4.5 only.

 * build system: Change `--enable-<plugin>' to abort with an error if
   dependencies are not met. Thanks to Bruno Prémont for the patch.
   Also, the poisoning of various string functions has been restricted
   to debug builds.
 * collectd: Fix a memory leak in the global value cache. With every
   *missing* value a couple of bytes would be leaked. Another memory
   leak in the configuration handling code has been fixed. Thanks to
   Niraj Tolia for reporting these issues.
 * collectd: Fix an off-by-one error in the ignorelist functionality.
   When using regular expressions, the last character would be missing,
   possibly matching differently from what one would expect.
 * collectdmon: Don't block SIGCHLD. This fixes a potential portability
 * collectd-nagios: Fix handling of the `-d' option. Thanks to Fabian
   Linzberger for reporting the bug.
 * iptables plugin: Fix an off-by-one error. If a string was just one
   character too long, it was truncated instead of reporting an error.
 * network plugin: Fix a memory leak in the configuration handling
   code. Thanks to Niraj Tolia for reporting this issue.
 * perl plugin: Log an error message if bootstrapping `Collectd' fails.
 * postgresql plugin: Don't reopen connection during reinitialization.
   This fixes a bug under Solaris and potentially other platforms.
   Missing calls to `PQclear' have been added, too. This fixes memory
   leaks. Thanks to ``Admin'' for reporting these bugs.
 * snmp plugin: Don't expect null-terminated strings from the Net-SNMP
 * tail plugin: Call `clearerr(3)' after reading an EOF. This fixes
   problems with some `libc's. Thanks to Matthias Lay for reporting the

Due to the memory leaks and bugs limiting functionality I strongly
suggest to upgrade.
