  • v2.1.12-stable Changes

    July 05, 2020

    🚀 This release contains only bug fixes.

    Please note, that you should use dist archives, i.e. libevent-2.1.11-stable.tar.gz, not the sources generated by github automatically

  • v2.1.11 Changes

    August 01, 2019

    This release contains one ABI breakage fix (that had been introduced in
    2.1.10 , and strictly speaking this release breaks ABI again to make it
    compatible with 2.1.9 and less, please take a look at 1810497 for more
    🛠 details). Apart from that it contains some bug fixes, that grouped below.

    And even though the return value for evbuffer_setcb() had been changed it
    should ABI compatible (anyway that function is in -compat.h header).

    There is also one patch that introduce new functionality, this is 546a366,
    to tune SO_RCVBUF/SO_SNDBUF in evdns, but one can count it as a bug-fix on
    the application level, since before you cannot tune this settings and hence
    you could stumble on problems.

    P.S. please use dist archives, i.e. libevent-2.1.11-stable.tar.gz (not the sources generated by github automatically)

  • v2.1.10 Changes

    May 25, 2019

    🚀 Finally 2.1.x stable release - 2.1.10-stable.

    🚀 This release contains mostly fixes (some evbuffer oddity, AF_UNIX handling in http server, some UB fixes and others) but also some new functionality (without ABI breakage as usual) and now dist archive can be used for building on windows (getopt had been added into it).

    I'm not going to attach ChangeLog here (since it is pretty large), but
    for those who is curios you can find it here:
    🚀 https://raw.github.com/libevent/libevent/release-2.1.10-stable/ChangeLog

    🏗 It has been tested in next environment (with both cmake/autotools build
    systems):

    • ubuntu
    • freebsd
    • osx
    • 🏁 windows
    • netbsd
    • solaris
    • centos

    As usual, many thanks to everyone who helped with
    ✅ debugging/backporting/reporting/testing and fixing issues!

    (please note, that you need "libevent-2.1.10-stable.tar.gz" not "Source
    code" links, since later requires running ./autogen.sh)

  • v2.1.9 Changes

    February 10, 2019

    🆕 New 2.1.x release is out - 2.1.9-beta. The reason why it is beta, is
    👍 because it is better to have few weeks (or more) to know about possible
    problems (although I'm pretty sure that it is good enough to be
    stable).

    2.1.9 contains almost all patches from 2.2 (since 2.2 contains almost
    🐛 bug fixes only, except I guess only few patches or so), and it is pretty
    ✅ stable in regression tests, but not without failures (some flackiness
    still presented), although this is not the problem of libevent itself,
    ✅ but it's tests.
