Hello everybody,

I've packaged a new round of patch releases for the 5.2 and 5.1 branches.

Version 5.2.1 fixes two bugs which were introduces in 5.2.0: A build
issue on systems without the gcrypt library was fixed. This caused many
people some headache when trying to compile collectd from source. Also,
the write_graphite plugin no longer accepted the "SeparateInstances" and
"AlwaysAppendDS" options


The new version is available in source-code form from collectd's
download page. The direct download links are:

    more frequently than intended.

  * dns plugin: Build issues on FreeBSD have been fixed. Thanks to
    Ed Schouten for his patch.

    Ritschard for his patch.
  * varnish plugin: Fix a problem with instances without name.

    "SeparateInstances" and "AlwaysAppendDS" options unusable has been
    fixed. A failed assertion when using types with many data sources
    has been fixed. Improve reporting of connection errors to not spam
    log files too much. Thanks to Pierre-Yves Ritschard for reporting
    the logging problem.

    Mettier for reporting this bug.
