bug fixes. Please see the changelog excerpt below if your setup is

Many thanks go to:

  * Alan Pevec for pointing out the strict aliasing problems in
  * Bruno Prémont for finding more bugs then I remember putting in
    there. ;)

    possible summarize in one sentence.


2009-03-18, Version 4.6.2
  * collectd: Some Solaris utility code has been improved.
  * filter subsystem: Allow `Chains' without default targets.
  * liboping: A patch to comply with strict aliasing rules has been
  * timediff match: Fix a typo: The match was registered with a wrong
    name which prevented this match to be used as documented. Thanks to
    Bruno Prémont for finding this problem.
  * bind plugin: Fix collection of the cached RR sets. The number of RR
    sets currently in the cache was collected as a counter value, which
    is nonsense. Thanks to Bruno Prémont for implementing this.
  * dns plugin: Don't pass NULL to `pcap_open_live': Some systems,
    primarily BSDs, don't take it well and crash.
  * oracle plugin: Portability to 64 bit systems has been improved.
  * postgresql plugin: The default configuration has been improved.
  * rrdtool plugin: Fix a possible race condition: If the network plugin
    is brought and dispatches a value before the rrdtool plugin is
    initialized, the daemon may crash.
