Other builds:


This is not a release candidate, just something that includes
Concurrent to play with until there is a real release.

Changes since Pike 8.0.438 (release 9)

New Features

o Concurrent

  The Concurrent module simplify asynchronous code by synchronizing
  events in different ways. As an example the connection() function
  shown will repond with Concurrent.Promise object that at some point
  will represent either a connected socket or a failure.

    Concurrent.Promise connection(string host, int port)
      Stdio.File con = Stdio.File();
      Concurrent.Promise p = Concurrent.Promise();
      if( !con->async_connect(host, port, lambda(int success)
            p->failure("Failed to connect to "+host+":"+port+"\n");
        p->failure("Failed to open socket.\n");
      return p;

  The returned promise could the be used in various ways.

    // On success, call make_request(con, query). On failure call
    // werror(msg).
    connection(host, port)
      ->on_success(make_request, query);

    // On success, call make_request(con, query1) followed by
    // make_request(resp, query2), where resp is the return value from
    // make_reqest.
    connection(host, port)
      ->then(make_request, werror, query1)
      ->then(make_request, werror, query2);

    // Call bridge_ports(con1, con2) when both connections are
    // established.
    Concurrent.all(connection(host1, port1), connection(host2, port2))
      ->then(bridge_ports, failure);

    // Call make_request(con) once either of the connections are
    // established.
    Concurrent.race(connection(host1, port1), connection(host2, port2))
      ->then(make_requet, query);

Bug fixes

o Search

  Fixed a race condition when updating the database.

o Parser.HTML

  Fixed a condition where Pike would run out of stack space for large

o ADT.Heap

  Fixed heap corruption when the same object is pushed more than
  once. It will now be considered as calling adjust().

o Inotify

  - Addressed an issue where the backend might be stuck in pending

  - EventStreamMonitor now works with other backends.

o Standards.BSON

  Fixed incorrect encoding/decoding of Binary data.

o Stdio.Buffer

  Fixed a crash when attempting to create a rewind key on a buffer
  returned by read_buffer().

o mappings

  Fixed an off by one error in random(mapping) that randomly caused
  values of type PIKE_T_FREE from the freelist to be exposed to Pike.
