- The abrt-addon-ccpp process logs messages using the rsyslog daemon. When rsyslog terminated unexpectedly, abrt-addon-ccpp could enter a deadlock state, because the /dev/log socket was not freed. The underlying source code has been modified to fix this bug, and the deadlock no longer occurs in the described situation.
- The "bootloader" plug-in was renamed to "boot". However, ABRT still used the old name when generating SOS reports. As a consequence, ABRT did not include SOS report data in its crash reports. With this update, ABRT now uses the correct name and generates SOS reports as expected.
- The libreport library could previously change mode of any file or mode of the dump directory because it followed symbolic links. Also, libreport could change ownership of a new dump directory. This behavior could lead to security issues. With this update, this bug has been fixed, and libreport no longer changes modes or ownership.

- This update introduces ABRT micro-reporting. When a crash occurs, users can now send authenticated reports about the problem called micro-reports. These reports contain non-sensitive data describing the problem and optionally host name, machine ID, and RHN account number. Micro-reports help Red Hat to track bug occurrences and to provide instant solutions to crashes. See https://access.redhat.com/node/642323 for more information about micro-reporting.
