7.132. logrotate

Updated logrotate packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The logrotate utility simplifies the administration of multiple log files, allowing the automatic rotation, compression, removal, and mailing of log files.

Bug Fix

Attempting to send a file to a specific e-mail address failed if the "mailfirst" and "delaycompress" options were used at the same time. This was because logrotate searched for a file with the "gz" suffix, however the file had not yet been compressed. The underlying source code has been modified, and logrotate correctly finds and sends the file under these circumstances.
All users of logrotate are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
