Updated CHANGES.

3:   New Features   ------------    - o ADT.History + o ADT.History       Support encode/decode_value().    -  + o Pike.FakeObject +  +  This is used as a placeholder used in place of other objects in backtraces. +    Bug fixes   ---------    -  + o backtrace() +  +  Hide mutex keys and crypto contexts from backtraces. +  +  Having unexpected references to mutex keys may cause hangs and +  complaints about attempting to lock mutexes recursively. +    o combine_path()       Fixed corner case where combine_path() on strings starting with
31:    > combine_path("./../foo");    (3) Result: "../foo"    + o describe_backtrace() +  +  - Do not use value identifiers that have not been defined in +  the visible backtrace. +  +  - Fix clipped/canclip propagation. +  + o types() +  +  Fixed reference leak. +    o Calendar    -  Fixed typo in the Catalan word for the month December. +  - Fixed typo in the Catalan word for the month December.    -  +  - Updated tzdata to 2018g. +    o Compiler       - Adhere to the calling convention more in the machine code
46:    - Fixed some corner cases where file names where missing from    backtraces.    + o Protocols.HTTP.Session +  +  - Fix race-condition when multiple threads call give_me_connection() +  with the same url at the same time. +  +  - Don't attempt to reuse SessionQuery objects. +  +  give_me_connection() now always returns a new SessionQuery object +  (albeit sometimes with a reused connection). +  +  This should alleviate issues with stuff being left around from +  previous queries. +    o Protocols.HTTP.Query       On Solaris 11 Stdio.File()->connect() often fails with EADDRINUSE.
67:    This in turn caused errors like "Not open" from    functions like read() and set_nonblocking().    + o Thread.Queue +  +  Attempt to work around glibc bugs. +  +  Glibc 2.24 and earlier have a broken implementation of condition +  variables (cf https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=13165). +  +  Attempt to work around the issue by having the signalling thread +  release the associated mutex before signalling. +  + o Thread.ResourceCount +  +  Fixed mutex handling. +    Building & Tools   ----------------    - o Drop support for Postgres 7.2. + o Drop support for Postgres 7.1.      o Fix compilation with Nettle 3.1.1.      o Support recent versions of libfreetype.    -  + o Drop use of the obsolete (~20 years) Solaris ioctl /proc API.    -  +  The ioctl-based /proc API was obsoleted in Solaris 2.6 (July 1997), +  but to be supported "until the next major release". In Solaris 11.4 +  (August 2018) the support has now finally been removed. +  +  Most of the removed code was from 1995, and was thus older than Pike... +  + o Improved pkg-config search path detection on Solaris. +  +  Solaris 11.4 provides a single pkg-config binary, which by default +  searches in /usr/lib/pkgconfig/ and /usr/share/pkgconfig/. +  Unfortunately, /usr/lib/pkgconfig/ contains information for +  the 32-bit packages (64-bit d:o is in /usr/lib/64/pkgconfig/). +  +  This issue caused eg 32-bit headers for libffi to be used, causing +  a SIGSEGV in ffi_closure_unix64_inner() due to the differing sizes +  of ffi_closure in 32-bit and 64-bit abi. +  +    Changes since Pike 8.0.610 (release 12)      New Features
