Implemented in C.      o Protocols.HTTP.Session will no longer override an existing    content-type header in async_do_method_url.    - o Updated timezone data to tzdata2009u. + o Protocols.HTTP    -  +  Allow directly specifying the body of a POST request (needed for the Google +  Apps API). +  + o Updated timezone data to tzdata2010l. +    o String.normalize_space       New and efficient C implementation; sanitises whitespace, even in wide    strings.      o String.trim_all_whites       Extended to the entire range of Unicode white spaces. (And is faster.)    - o Protocols.HTTP -  -  Allow directly specifying the body of a POST request (needed for the Google -  Apps API). -  +    o Tools.PV and pike -x pv now works with GTK2 as well as GTK.      o Integer constants exported by modules can now be used in cpp expressions.    -  + o Modules/programs that have the constant "dont_dump_program" will not +  be dumped on installation. This is used to prevent dumping of +  programs that check for external dependencies at compile time such +  as the MySQL module.    -  + o Added Thread.Queue.peek_array. +  + o Fixed stack overrun bug in Nettle.CBC and Nettle.Proxy. This is not +  belived to be a security issue. +  + o Added System.getloadavg() on platforms that support the getloadavg() call. +  + o SSL +  +  Added support for AES to SSL3, and fixed bug that prevented some +  handshake failure alers to be sent to the client. +  + o ADT.Heap->values and ->num_values can now be overloaded. +    Optimizations   -------------      o MIME should now use 1/3 less memory when decoding big messages.    -  + o Improved performance of Process.run.    -  + o Nettle.hash +  +  Disallow 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. +  +    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.         Incompatible changes   --------------------
