pike.git/CHANGES:25:      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 Tools.PV and pike -x pv now works with GTK2 as well as GTK. + o Tools.PV and pike -x pv now work 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. +  belived to have been 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. +  handshake failure alerts 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 +  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.         Deprecations   ------------    - o The libpq based old Postgres driver is now deprecated. The new pgsql + 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   --------------------      o Signal handlers in GTK2 do no longer get their arguments in the -  form of an array. The prototype for a signal handler which was +  form of an array. The prototype for a signal handler which was    previously e.g.       int query_tooltip(GTK2.Widget w, array(mixed) params, mixed callback_arg)       now becomes       int query_tooltip(GTK2.Widget w, int x, int y, int keyboard_tooltip,    GTK2.GObject tooltip, mixed callback_arg)      
pike.git/CHANGES:110:    EOPNOTSUPP and ECONNRESET when a stream is half closed.    The undocumented behaviour is found on (at least) 2.6.x Linux    and FreeBSD 7.x and 8.x.      o Use nanosleep() when available instead of poll or select hacks for    the Pike-level sleep() function.      o Fixed dangling cache reference in prepared statements when using CREATE    statements via Sql.pgsql.    - o Fixed broken (autore)connect logic in Sql.pgsql. + o Fixed broken (auto-re-) connect logic in Sql.pgsql.      o Improved widestring support for Parser.Tabular.      o Fixed segfault in combine_path_nt on windows when the first char    of an appended path is wide.      o Fixed fatal error in the constant expression evaluator of the    compiler for certain code.      o Fixed a problem in "pike -x module" that prevented auto tools from    running in the correct directory.      o Fixed memory leak on out of memory in Mysql.fetch_json_result().      o Fixed locking problem in Mysql.      o Fixed NULL-deref for compilation errors in range expressions.    - o Fixes a segfault occuring if exit() is used from a thread when -  cleanup-on-exit is compiled in. + o Fixed a segfault occuring if exit() is used from a thread when +  the Pike runtime has been compiled with cleanup-on-exit enabled.      o Fixed so than an existing content-type is not overriden in    async_do_method_url.      o Fixed issue where GTK objects weren't destroyed properly.    http://pike.ida.liu.se/docs/tutorial/hello/window.xml now    works again.      o Fixed several issues related to lables on the X and Y axises    and the calculation of xmaxvalue for the bars/line/linear case    in Graphics.Graph.      o Fixed encoding/decoding bug in "pike -x httpserver" that prevented -  files with space in the name for being accessable. +  files with space in the name from being accessable.    - o Fixed bug that prevented literal zero to be considered a constant. + o Fixed bug that prevented the literal zero from being considered a constant.         Building and installing   -----------------------    - o Fixed som library searchpath issues. + o Fixed some library searchpath issues.      o Some potential fixes for --enable-pikelib mode on platforms had    problems with the final linking.            Changes since Pike 7.8.316 (second 7.8 release):   ----------------------------------------------------------------------      General
