Description

I have a bug where if a boolean is set in the outputs configuration that isn't yes it sets to false.

This works(in config),
outputs:
- fast: {enabled: yes, filename: fast.log}

but this doesn't:
outputs:
- fast: {enabled: false, filename: fast.log}

I believe part of the problem exists on line 110 of runmodes.c in version 1.0.3

/** * Initialize the output modules.
*/
void RunModeInitializeOutputs(void) {
...
if (enabled != NULL && strcasecmp(enabled, "yes") == 0) {
To reproduce, change all the options in the outputs from "yes" to true.
