pike.git/CHANGES:94:      o SSL       Added support for AES to SSL3, and fixed bug that prevented some    handshake failure alerts to be sent to the client.       Implemented RFC 5746 "TLS Renegotiation Indication Extension".       Support parsing of Hello Extensions (RFC 5246    + o Stdio +  +  New methods in Stdio.File: +  +  set_callbacks() and query_callbacks() for handling several callbacks at once. +  +  send_fd() and receive_fd() allow file descriptors to be sent and received over +  UNIX-domain sockets. +  +  The type for Stdio.Fd.create() is now as documented. +  +  Stdio.Terminfo contains a new class, MetaTerminfoDB, that merges several terminfo directories. +  +  Stdio.File()->query_address() now knows about IPv6-mapped IPv4 addresses. +  +  Added some extra magic to Stdio.File()->connect() when mixing IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. +    o ADT.Heap->values and ->num_values can now be overloaded.      o Added support for binding a Protocols.DNS server to multiple port/interface    combinations.      o Support for asynchronous DNS query replies in Protocols.DNS.      o Calendar       dwim_time() should know how to parse ISO 8601 timestamps.
pike.git/CHANGES:131:   o Added Int.reflect().      o Image.Dims adds support for Photoshop files.      o Added Gmp.encode_json().      o Added Thread.Queue.peek_array.      o Add System.getloadavg() on platforms that support the getloadavg() call.    + o Pike.Backend has reinstated call_out memory usage, and a new function, +  Pike.DefaultBackend.get_stats() for viewing this data. +  + o Locale.Charset now supports encoding and decoding UTF32. +    Optimizations   -------------      o MIME should now use 1/3 less memory when decoding big messages.      o Nettle.hash       Avoid allowing threads during hashing of small strings (current threshold    is 1 MB). This change improves ApacheBench numbers ~20% for a Roxen    benchmark on a quad-core Core i5.      o String.trim_all_whites is 10% faster and includes all Unicode.    -  + o Improved performance of Process.run when threads aren't supported.    -  + o Locale.Charset improves performance of encoders when replacement is active +  by a few magnitudes. +    Deprecations   ------------      o The libpq based old Postgres driver is now deprecated. The new pgsql    driver is faster, better tested, more stable, maintained, has more    features, does not depend on external libraries and is less filling.      o Stdio.File: << is deprecated.      
pike.git/CHANGES:272:   o Added Autodoc support for new-style getter and setter syntax.      o Fixed support for documenting arguments to implicit create().      o Fixed bugs in handling of abrupt SSL3 remote close. sslfile now also triggers    EPIPE errors if the user attempts to read or write to a connection that    has been abruptly closed (to detect truncation attacks better).      o Fixed issue where SSL3 async_client objects became garbage even after close().    + o Stdio.{write,append}_file() now throw errors in ALL failure modes.    - Building and installing - ----------------------- + o Stdio.cp should now work on directory trees on Windows.    -  + o Stdio.File()->query_address() should return a correct errno when given a +  socket with an invalid protocol family. +  + o Stdio.File()->file_peek() now refrains from releasing the interpreter lock +  if there's no timeout. +  + o Fix a buffer overrun when formatting Gmp.mpz as floats if the precision +  exceeds the number of digits. +  + o Parser.XML.Tree contains fixes for add_child_before() and add_child_after(). +  + o Parser.Tabular fixes support for Stdio.File objects. For example: +  +  Pike v7.8 release 468 running Hilfe v3.5 (Incremental Pike Frontend) +  > Parser.Tabular(Stdio.File("data.csv"), Stdio.File("format.csv")); +  + o Tools.X509 uses a unique serial number for each selfsigned certificate. +  Firefox otherwise complains about serial number clashes. +  + o Fixed return value from Regexp.PCRE.exec to always have entries for all +  submatches. +  + o sprintf: Ensure that decimal points are used when floats are formatted in +  casts etc. Previously the float formatting in casts and in sprintf("%O",...) +  were susceptible to locale settings and could therefore use something other +  than a '.' as decimal separator. Note that sprintf("%f",...) is still +  locale sensitive. +  + o Fuse has fixed support for readlink(). +  +  + Building, installing and developer tools + ---------------------------------------- +    o Fixed some library searchpath issues.      o Some potential fixes for --enable-pikelib mode on platforms had    problems with the final linking.      o Some issues with the support for building modules needing    a C++ compiler have been fixed.      o Made it possible to override $(OS) with an environment variable    $PIKE_BUILD_OS.
pike.git/CHANGES:308:   o Fix to make dump.pike dump itself just like any other module class.      o Improved support for LIBPIKE.      o Added PIKE_CORE define to detect when not compiling a module.      o Improved support for autoconf 2.6x.      o Ensure that --with-rtldebug enables assertions.    - o Now attempts to set up the PKG_CONFIG_PATH. + o Configure script now attempts to set up the PKG_CONFIG_PATH.    -  + o Updated the ABI selector for MacOS X. Default to attempting the compiler +  default ABI (instead of forcing 32-bit ABI). +  + o CMOD Enhancements +  +  Tools.Standalone.precompile supports ranges for strings and negative +  int(low..high) bounds. +  +  Fixed bug in generate_overload_func_for() when there are alternatives +  accepting zero arguments. +    o Tools.Testsuite:       Added some functions to make pretty logging in tests easier.       Tools.Standalone.test_pike passes the verbosity level in an environment    variable TEST_VERBOSITY to subtests.       Tools.Testsuite accumulates multiple result reports.      Changes since Pike 7.8.316 (second 7.8 release):
