* Added a new multifile sink backend.
* Added a new ordering asynchronous sink frontend.
* The syslog sink backend is now supported on Windows, too. The sink no

* Added support for scoped logging. There is now a distinct log record
entity, which is returned by the core as a result of filtring.
* Added support for exception control.
* Added a new mode of logging, called trivial logging.
