Hi everybody,

I've packaged versions 5.0.2 and 4.10.5 of collectd. These patch
releases fix bugs relative to their previous versions, 5.0.1 and 4.10.4
respectively. Most notably memory leaks have been fixed in the Oracle
and Python plugins.


The releases are available from collectd's home page as compressed

Thanks to the people contributing code to these releases, namely:

  * Eddy Geez
  * Fabien Wenli
  * Sebastian Harl
  * Toni Ylenius


  * curl_xml plugin: Fix handling of file:// and other URLs (which don't
    follow HTTP status codes). Thanks to Fabien Wernli for his patch!
  * df plugin: Fix handling of negative "available" counts. This can
    occur with some file systems, for example UFS. Thanks to Toni Ylenius
    for his patch.
  * interface plugin: "mac" interfaces are now ignored on Solaris. These
    pseudo-interfaces occur multiple times, causing warnings. Also switch
    to 64-bit counters on Solaris, improving overflow behavior for
    high-speed interfaces. Thanks to Eddy Geez and Fabien Wernli for
    their patches.
  * memory plugin: Account kernel and unused memory under Solaris. Thanks
    to Fabien Wernli for his patch.
  * network plugin: A bug in the interaction between the Network plugin
    and filter chains has been fixed: When a filter modified a field such
    as the hostname, subsequent values in the same network packets could
    have ended up using the modified name rather than the original name.
    Thanks to Sebastian Harl for identifying the problem.
  * oracle plugin: A memory leak has been fixed in the parameter handling.
  * python plugin: A memory leak has been fixed. Thanks to Sven Trenkel
    for fixing this bug!
