Some distros ship newer version of send_nsca which are not compatible anymore with the old NSCA 2.7 server shipped with Check_MK. So we had to update NSCA to 2.9.1.

The version is incompatible in one detail: If you are submitting multiple check results at once you can not use new lines (\n) anymore. You will have to change it to use the ETB character. This was a subtile and not well documented change in NSCA. The help text of send_nsca contains the following text:

=== When submitting multiple simultaneous results, separate each set with the ETB character (^W or 0x17) ===
