Name: libevent-2_1-8 Distribution: openSUSE Leap 15.0
Version: 2.1.8 Vendor: openSUSE
Release: lp150.2.5 Build date: Mon Oct 2 14:00:00 2017
Group: System/Libraries Build host: lamb20

Summary: An event notification library
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.

Currently, libevent supports /dev/poll, kqueue(2), event ports,
POSIX select(2), Windows select(), poll(2), and epoll(4).

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.

This package holds the shared libraries for libevent.

  - Changes in 1.4.13-stable:
    o If the kernel tells us that there are a negative number of bytes to read from a socket, do not believe it.  Fixes bug 2841177; found by Alexander Pronchenkov.
    o Do not allocate the maximum event queue and fd array for the epoll backend at startup.  Instead, start out accepting 32 events at a time, and double the queue's size when it seems that the OS is generating events faster than we're requesting them.  Saves up to 512K per epoll-based event_base.  Resolves bug 2839240.
    o Fix compilation on Android, which forgot to define fd_mask in its sys/select.h
    o Do not drop data from evbuffer when out of memory; reported by Jacek Masiulaniec
    o Rename our replacement compat/sys/_time.h header to avoid build a conflict on HPUX; reported by Kathryn Hogg.
    o Build kqueue.c correctly on GNU/kFreeBSD platforms. Patch pulled upstream from Debian.
    o Fix a problem with excessive memory allocation when using multiple event priorities.
    o When running set[ug]id, don't check the environment. Based on a patch from OpenBSD.

  - Changes in 1.4.12-stable:
    o Try to contain degree of failure when running on a win32 version so
    heavily firewalled that we can't fake a socketpair.
    o Fix an obscure timing-dependent, allocator-dependent crash in the evdns code.
    o Use __VA_ARGS__ syntax for varargs macros in event_rpcgen when compiler
    is not GCC.
    o Activate fd events in a pseudorandom order with O(N) backends, so
    that we don't systematically favor low fds (select) or earlier-added fds
    (poll, win32).
    o Fix another pair of fencepost bugs in epoll.c.  [Patch from Adam Langley.]
    o Do not break evdns connections to nameservers when our IP changes.
    o Set truncated flag correctly in evdns server replies.
    o Disable strict aliasing with GCC: our code is not compliant with it.
  - Changes in 1.4.11-stable:
    o Fix a bug when removing a timeout from the heap. [Patch from Marko Kreen]
    o Remove the limit on size of HTTP headers by removing static buffers.
    o Fix a nasty dangling pointer bug in epoll.c that could occur after
    epoll_recalc(). [Patch from Kevin Springborn]
    o Distribute Win32-Code/event-config.h, not ./event-config.h
  - Changes in 1.4.10-stable:
    o clean up buffered http connection data on reset; reported by Brian O'Kelley
    o bug fix and potential race condition in signal handling; from Alexander Drozdov
    o rename the Solaris event ports backend to evport
    o support compilation on Haiku
    o fix signal processing when a signal callback delivers a signal; from Alexander Drozdov
    o const-ify some arguments to evdns functions.
    o off-by-one error in epoll_recalc; reported by Victor Goya
    o include Doxyfile in tar ball; from Jeff Garzik
    o correctly parse queries with encoded \r, \n or + characters
* Mon Mar 16 2009 meissner@suse.de
  - updated to 1.4.9-stable:
    o event_add would not return error for some backends; from Dean McNamee
    o Clear the timer cache on entering the event loop; reported by Victor Chang
    o Only bind the socket on connect when a local address has been provided;
    reported by Alejo Sanchez
    o Allow setting of local port for evhttp connections to support millions
    of connections from a single system; from Richard J ones.
    o Clear the timer cache when leaving the event loop; reported by Robin Haberkorn
    o Fix a typo in setting the global event base; reported by lance.

    o Correct handling of trailing headers in chunked replies; from Scott Lamb.
    o Support multi-line HTTP headers; based on a patch from Moshe Litvin
    o Reject negative Content-Length headers; anonymous bug report
    o Detect CLOCK_MONOTONIC at runtime for evdns; anonymous bug report
    o Fix a bug where deleting signals with the kqueue backend would cause subsequent adds to fail
    o Support multiple events listening on the same signal; make signals
    regular events that go on the same event queue; problem
    report by Alexander Drozdov.
    o Deal with evbuffer_read() returning -1 on EINTR|EAGAIN; from Adam Langley.
    o Fix a bug in which the DNS server would incorrectly set the type of a cname reply to a.
    o Fix a bug where setting the timeout on a bufferevent would take not effect if the event was already pending.
    o Fix a memory leak when using signals for some event bases; reported by Alexander Drozdov.
    o Add libevent.vcproj file to distribution to help with Windows build.
    o Fix a problem with epoll() and reinit; problem report by Alexander Drozdov.
