./devel/libevent, Asynchronous event notification library

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.1.11nb1, Package name: libevent-2.1.11nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The libevent API provides a mechanism to execute a callback function
when a specific event occurs on a file descriptor or after a timeout
has been reached. Furthermore, libevent also support callbacks due
to signals or regular timeouts.

libevent is meant to replace the asynchronous event loop found in
event driven network servers. An application just needs to call
event_dispatch() and can then add or remove events dynamically
without having to change the event loop.

Currently, libevent supports /dev/poll, kqueue(2), event ports,
select(2), poll(2), and epoll(4). The internal event mechanism is
completely independent of the exposed event API, and a simple update
of libevent can provide new functionality without having to redesign
the applications.

Libevent additionally provides a sophisticated framework for buffered
network IO, with support for sockets, filters, rate-limiting, SSL,
zero-copy file transmission, and IOCP. Libevent includes support
for several useful protocols, including DNS, HTTP, and a minimal
RPC framework.

As a side-effect of migrating the homepages, pkglint also fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines. These and the new homepages have been
checked manually.

libevent: updated to 2.1.11

Changes in version 2.1.11-stable

 This release contains one ABI breakage fix (that had been introduced in
 2.1.10, and strictly speaking this release breaks ABI again to make it
 compatible with 2.1.9 and less, please take a look at 18104973 for more
 details). Apart from that it contains some bug fixes, that grouped below.

 And even though the return value for evbuffer_setcb() had been changed it
 should ABI compatible (anyway that function is in -compat.h header).

 There is also one patch that introduce new functionality, this is 546a366c,
 to tune SO_RCVBUF/SO_SNDBUF in evdns, but one can count it as a bug-fix on
 the application level, since before you cannot tune this settings and hence
 you could stumble on problems.

 ABI breakage:
  o Protect min_heap_push_ against integer overflow.
  o Revert "Protect min_heap_push_ against integer overflow."

 functionality:
  o evdns: add new options -- so-rcvbuf/so-sndbuf

 build:
  o Change autoconf version to 2.62 and automake version to 1.11.2
  o cmake: install shared library only if it was requested
  o Missing <winerror.h> on win7/MinGW(MINGW32_NT-6.1)/MSYS
  o cmake: set library names to be the same as with autotools
  o Enable _GNU_SOURCE for Android
  o Enable kqueue for APPLE targets
  o autotools: do not install bufferevent_ssl.h under --disable-openssl
  o cmake: link against shell32.lib/advapi32.lib
  o Add README.md into dist archive
  o cmake: add missing autotools targets (doxygen, uninstall, event_rpcgen.py)
  o m4/libevent_openssl.m4: fix detection of openssl
  o Fix detection of the __has_attribute() for apple clang [ci skip]

 lib:
  o buffer: fix possible NULL dereference in evbuffer_setcb() on ENOMEM
  o Warn if forked from the event loop during event_reinit()
  o evutil: set the have_checked_interfaces in evutil_check_interfaces()

 samples:
  o https-client: correction error checking

Changes in version 2.1.10-stable

 This release contains mostly fixes (some evbuffer oddity, AF_UNIX handling in
 http server, some UB fixes and others) but also some new functionality
 (without ABI breakage as usual) and now dist archive can be used for building
 on windows (getopt had been added into it).

 Above you will find changelog for this particular release (but with some
 trivial fixes pruned out from it - to make it a little bit more informative).

 To view full changelog please use git:
   git log --format='  o %s (%h %aN)' release-2.1.9-beta...release-2.1.10-stable

  o Merge branch 'evbuffer-empty-chain-handling'
  o Don't loose top error in SSL
  o Remove needless check for arc4_seeded_ok
  o Merge pull request 769 from sungjungk/fix-return-handling

 build:
  o Define `_GNU_SOURCE` properly/consistently per autoconf
  o signal: guard __cdecl definition with #ifdef
  o Link test/regress with event_core/event_extra over event

 tests:
  o Use kill() over raise() for raising the signal (fixes osx 10.14 with
    kqueue)
  o tinytest: implement per-test timeout (via alarm() under !win32 only)

Changes in version 2.1.9-beta

 This changelog will differs from other releases in the next few clauses:
 - contains only highlighted changes (so now it will not contains a lot of
   patches that fixes some stuff in regression tests, typos, leaks fixes in
   samples and so forth)
 - no authors (since merge commits breaks them anyway, but AUTHORS sections in
   README will be kept up to date)
 - group name trimmed from commit subjects trimmed
 - it's been 2 years since the previoius release, so it is pretty huge

 And I think that this is more useful, so from now on it will always has the
 same look (until there will too many objections of course).
