In previous versions it was needed to escape backslashes with another backslash. This has been cleaned up now. You could leave your configuration untouched and it still works as before.

In a rare case, if your configuration contains double escaped backslashes, i.e "\\\\" or even "\\\\\\", this change will result in one old service being removed and one new services being discovered. For example, the service "LOG C:\\\\Back\\test.log" previously discovered as "LOG C:\\Back\test.log" will be discovered now as "LOG C:\Back\test.log". In this case you will have to rediscover the related Log services on your hosts.

We recommend finding and replacing the escaped backslashes (if any) with plain backslash "\" for better usability. You do not need to rediscover services again.

In case you have configured "Logwatch to Event Console forwarding", you may have to update your forwarding and Event Console rules to match the new log path.
