  • v4.3.2 Changes

    July 08, 2019

    🚀 0MQ version 4.3.2 stable, released on 2019/07/08

    CVE-2019-13132: a remote, unauthenticated client connecting to a
    libzmq application, running with a socket listening with CURVE
    encryption/authentication enabled, may cause a stack overflow and
    overwrite the stack with arbitrary data, due to a buffer overflow in
    🔧 the library. Users running public servers with the above configuration
    ⬆️ are highly encouraged to upgrade as soon as possible, as there are no
    known mitigations. All versions from 4.0.0 and upwards are affected.
    Thank you Fang-Pen Lin for finding the issue and reporting it!

    New DRAFT (see NEWS for 4.2.0) zmq_socket_monitor_versioned API that supports
    a versioned monitoring events protocol as a parameter. Passing 1 results in
    the same behaviour as zmq_socket_monitor.
    🔖 Version 2 of the events protocol allows new events, new metadata, different
    socket types for the monitors and more. It is described in details in

    New DRAFT (see NEWS for 4.2.0) zmq_socket_monitor_pipes_stats that triggers
    a new ZMQ_EVENT_PIPES_STATS to be delivered via zmq_socket_monitor_versioned
    v2 API, which contains the current status of all the queues owned by the
    monitored socket. See doc/zmq_socket_monitor_versioned.txt for details.

    New DRAFT (see NEWS for 4.2.0) zmq_poller_fd that returns the FD of a thread
    👀 safe socket. See doc/zmq_poller.txt for details.

    🆕 New DRAFT (see NEWS for 4.2.0) socket options:

    • ZMQ_XPUB_MANUAL_LAST_VALUE is similar to ZMQ_XPUB_MANUAL but allows to avoid
      duplicates when using last value caching.
    • ZMQ_SOCKS_USERNAME and ZMQ_SOCKS_PASSWORD that implement SOCKS5 proxy
      See doc/zmq_setsockopt.txt and doc/zmq_getsockopt.txt for details.

    🏁 Implemented background thread names for Windows, when the Visual Studio
    debugger is being used.

    🔒 Fixed #3358 - test_security_zap failing due to SIGBUS on SPARC64, hard-coded
    ✅ IPC socket binds in tests cause race conditions

    🛠 Fixed #3361 - enabling GSSAPI support (when using autools) does not work due
    to regression introduced in 4.2.3

    Fixed #3362 - remove documentation for ZMQ_THREAD_PRIORITY context option
    getter, it's not implemented

    🛠 Fixed #3363 - tests fail to build due to stricter compiler printf validation

    🛠 Fixed #3367 - try to infer cacheline size at build time, first with
    getconf LEVEL1_DCACHE_LINESIZE, and then by reading
    (autoconf only), and only then falling back to the previous
    0️⃣ default of 64 bytes. Avoids false sharing on POWER and s390x.
    Import ax_func_posix_memalign.m4 as a more reliable check for
    posix_memalign presence on some unix platforms.
    Prefer c++11 atomic primitives to compiler intrinsics, when
    both are available, as the former is more reliable.
    Set test_pair_ipc and test_rebind_ipc to XFAIL on GNU/Hurd due
    to non-functioning getsockname on AF_UNIX.

    🛠 Fixed #3370 - Make queue length and HWM state observable

    🛠 Fixed #3373 - performance regression in zmq_poll on CentOS 6/7

    🛠 Fixed #3375 - assign names to all pthreads created by the library to ease

  • v4.3.2-win

    August 27, 2019
  • v4.3.1 Changes

    January 12, 2019

    🚀 0MQ version 4.3.1 stable, released on 2019/01/12

    CVE-2019-6250: A vulnerability has been found that would allow attackers to direct a peer to
    jump to and execute from an address indicated by the attacker.
    🚀 This issue has been present since v4.2.0. Older releases are not affected.
    NOTE: The attacker needs to know in advance valid addresses in the peer's
    memory to jump to, so measures like ASLR are effective mitigations.
    NOTE: this attack can only take place after authentication, so peers behind
    CURVE/GSSAPI are not vulnerable to unauthenticated attackers.
    👀 See #3351 for more details.
    Thanks to Guido Vranken for uncovering the issue and providing the fix!

    📦 Note for packagers: as pkg-config's Requires.private is now used to properly
    🏗 propagate dependencies for static builds, the libzmq*-dev or zeromq-devel or
    📦 equivalent package should now depend on the libfoo-dev or foo-devel packages
    of all the libraries that zmq is linked against, or pkg-config --libs libzmq
    will fail due to missing dependencies on end users machines.

    🛠 Fixed #3351 - remote code execution vulnerability.

    🛠 Fixed #3343 - race condition in ZMQ_PUSH when quickly disconnecting and
    reconnecting causes last part of multi-part message to get
    "stuck" and resent by mistake to the new socket.

    🛠 Fixed #3336 - set Requires.private in generate pkg-config file.

    🛠 Fixed #3334 - set TCP_NODELAY after connect() on Windows for the I/O socket.

    🛠 Fixed #3326 - assert on Android when opening a socket and disabling WiFi.

    🛠 Fixed #3320 - build failure on OpenBSD with GCC.

  • v4.3.0 Changes

    November 28, 2018

    🚀 0MQ version 4.3.0 stable, released on 2018/11/28

    The following DRAFT APIs have been marked as STABLE and will not change

    • ZMQ_MSG_T_SIZE context option (see doc/zmq_ctx_get.txt)
      🚚 context options, to add/remove CPUs to the affinity set of the I/O threads.
      See doc/zmq_ctx_set.txt and doc/zmq_ctx_get.txt for details.
    • ZMQ_THREAD_NAME_PREFIX (Posix only) context option, to add a specific
      integer prefix to the background threads names, to easily identify them.
      See doc/zmq_ctx_set.txt and doc/zmq_ctx_get.txt for details.
      socket options, for the corresponding GSSAPI features. Additional
      definitions for principal name types:
        👀 See doc/zmq_gssapi.txt for details.
    • ZMQ_BINDTODEVICE socket option (Linux only), which will bind the
      🐧 socket(s) to the specified interface. Allows to use Linux VRF, see:
      NOTE: requires the program to be ran as root OR with CAP_NET_RAW
    • zmq_timers_* APIs. These functions can be used for cross-platforms timed
      👀 callbacks. See doc/zmq_timers.txt for details.
    • The following socket monitor events:
      • ZMQ_EVENT_HANDSHAKE_FAILED_NO_DETAIL: unknown errors during handshake.
      • ZMQ_EVENT_HANDSHAKE_SUCCEEDED: Handshake completed with authentication.
      • ZMQ_EVENT_HANDSHAKE_FAILED_PROTOCOL: Protocol errors with peers or ZAP.
      • ZMQ_EVENT_HANDSHAKE_FAILED_AUTH: Failed authentication requests.
        See doc/zmq_socket_monitor.txt for more details and error codes.
    • zmq_stopwatch_intermediate which returns the time elapsed without stopping
      the stopwatch.
    • zmq_proxy_steerable command 'STATISTICS' to retrieve stats about the amount
      of messages and bytes sent and received by the proxy.
      See doc/zmq_proxy_steerable.txt for more information.

    🏗 The build-time configuration option to select the poller has been split, and
    🆕 new API_POLLER (CMake) and --with-api-poller (autoconf) options will now
    📊 determine what system call is used to implement the zmq_poll/zmq_poller APIs.
    The previous POLLER and --with-poller options now only affects the
    internal I/O thread. In case API_POLLER is not specified, the behaviour keeps
    🚀 backward compatibility intact and will be the same as with previous releases.

    0️⃣ The non-default "poll" poller for the internal I/O thread (note: NOT for the
    📊 zmq_poll/zmq_poller user APIs!) has been disabled on Windows as WSAPoll does
    👀 not report connection failures. For more information see:


    🆕 New epoll implementation for Windows, using the following implementation:
    👷 To use this, select "epoll" as the poller option in the build system.
    Note for distributors: the wepoll source code is embedded and distributed.
    It is licensed under the BSD-2-Clause and thus it is compatible with LGPL-3.0.
    🏗 Note that, if selected at build time, the license text must be distributed
    with the binary in accordance to the license terms. A copy can be found at:

    🗄 The pre-made Visual Studio solutions file are deprecated, and users are
    encouraged to use the CMake solution generation feature instead.

    🆕 New DRAFT (see NEWS for 4.2.0) socket options:

    • ZMQ_ROUTER_NOTIFY to deliver a notification when a peer connects and/or
      disconnects in the form of a routing id plus a zero-length frame.
    • ZMQ_MULTICAST_LOOP to control whether the data sent should be looped back
      on local listening sockets for UDP multicast sockets (ZMQ_RADIO).
      See doc/zmq_setsockopt.txt and doc/zmq_getsockopt.txt for details.

    New perf tool, perf/benchmark_radix_tree, to measure the performance of the
    different internal implementations of the trie algorithm used to track
    👍 subscriptions. Requires a compiler that supports C++11.

    🆕 New autoconf flag "--enable-force-CXX98-compat" which will force -std=gnu++98
    👍 and, if the compiler supports them (clang++ at the moment), it will also add
    -Wc++98-compat -Wc++98-compat-pedantic so that compatibility with C++98 can
    ✅ be tested.

  • v4.2.3 Changes

    December 13, 2017

    🚀 0MQ version 4.2.3 stable, released on 2017/12/13

    API change: previously ZMQ_POLLOUT on a ZMQ_ROUTER socket returned always
    true due to how the type works. When ZMQ_ROUTER_MANDATORY is set, sending
    fails when the peer is not available, but ZMQ_POLLOUT always returns true
    anyway, which does not make sense. Now when ZMQ_ROUTER_MANDATORY is set,
    ZMQ_POLLOUT on a ZMQ_ROUTER will return true only if at least one peer is
    Given ZMQ_POLLOUT with ZMQ_ROUTER was not usable at all previously, we do
    not consider this a breakage warranting a major or minor version increase.

    ZMQ_IDENTITY has been renamed to ZMQ_ROUTING_ID and ZMQ_CONNECT_RID has been
    renamed to ZMQ_CONNTECT_ROUTING_ID to disambiguate. ZMQ_IDENTITY and
    ZMQ_CONNECT_RID are still available to keep backward compatibility, and will
    🚀 be removed in a future release after further advance notice.

    DRAFT API change: zmq_poller_wait, zmq_poller_wait_all and zmq_poller_poll
    ⏱ have been changed to be inline with other existing APIs that have a timeout
    to return EAGAIN instead of ETIMEDOUT as the errno value.
    👀 See #2713 for details.

    Existing non-DRAFT socket types ZMQ_REP/REQ, ZMQ_ROUTER/DEALER and
    🗄 ZMQPUB/SUB, that were previously declared deprecated, have been reinstated
    👀 as stable and supported. See #2699 for details.

    👍 Tweetnacl: add support for, and use preferably if available, getrandom() as
    a simpler and less error-prone alternative to /dev/urandom on OSes where it
    🐧 is available (eg: Linux 3.18 with glibc 2.25).

    🚚 Curve: all remaining traces of debug output to console are now removed, and
    🆕 new DRAFT events are available to properly debug CURVE, PLAIN, GSSAPI and
    👀 ZAP events and failures. See below for details on the new events.

    🆕 New DRAFT (see NEWS for 4.2.0) socket options:

      the corresponding GSSAPI features. Additional definitions for principal
      name types:
        👀 See doc/zmq_gssapi.txt for details.
    • ZMQ_BINDTODEVICE (Linux only), which will bind the socket(s) to the
      🐧 specified interface. Allows to use Linux VRF, see:
      NOTE: requires the program to be ran as root OR with CAP_NET_RAW
    • ZMQ_ZAP_ENFORCE_DOMAIN, enables strict RFC 27 compatibility mode and makes
      🔒 the ZAP Domain mandatory when using security. See:
      See doc/zmq_setsockopt.txt and doc/zmq_getsockopt.txt for details.

    🆕 New DRAFT (see NEWS for 4.2.0) context options:

      🚚 to add and remove CPUs to the affinity set of the I/O threads. Useful to pin
      the background threads to specific CPUs.
    • ZMQ_THREAD_NAME_PREFIX (Posix only), to add a specific integer prefix to the
      background threads names, to easily identify them for debugging purposes.
      See doc/zmq_ctx_set.txt and doc/zmq_ctx_get.txt for details.

    🆕 New DRAFT (see NEWS for 4.2.0) message property name definitions to facilitate
    the use of zmq_msg_gets:

      See doc/zmq_msg_gets.txt for details.

    New DRAFT (see NEWS for 4.2.0) API zmq_socket_get_peer_state, to be used to
    query the state of a specific peer (via routing-id) of a ZMQ_ROUTER socket.

    🆕 New DRAFT (see NEWS for 4.2.0) Socket Monitor events:

    • ZMQ_EVENT_HANDSHAKE_FAILED_NO_DETAIL, unknown system error and returns errno
    • ZMQ_EVENT_HANDSHAKE_SUCCEEDED, handshake was successful
    • ZMQ_EVENT_HANDSHAKE_FAILED_PROTOCOL, protocol errors between peers or server
      and ZAP handler. Returns one of ZMQ_PROTOCOL_ERROR_* - see manpage for list
    • ZMQ_EVENT_HANDSHAKE_FAILED_AUTH, failed authentication, returns ZAP status
      🔒 These events trigger when the ZMTP security mechanism handshake is
      completed or failed. See doc/zmq_socket_monitor.txt for more information.

    New DRAFT (see NEWS for 4.2.0) zmq_proxy_steerable command 'STATISTICS' to
    retrieve stats about the amount of messages and bytes sent and received by
    the proxy. See doc/zmq_proxy_steerable.txt for more information.

    ➕ Add new autoconf --disable-libunwind option to stop building with libunwind
    even if it is available.

    ➕ Add new autoconf --disable-Werror option to avoid building with the Werror

    🏗 Use pkg-config as the first method for finding and building with external
    optional dependencies such as libnorm, libpgm and gssapi.

    On Posix platform where the feature is available, name the ZMQ background
    threads to simplify debugging: "ZMQbg/<num_thread>"

    Improve performance of zmq_poller_* (and zmq_poll and zmq_proxy when building
    with DRAFT APIs enabled).

    🔨 The TCP unit tests have been refactored to bind and connect to random ports
    ✅ rather than hard-coded ones, to allow running tests in parallel.
    There are 6 exceptions where it is necessary to use an hard-coded port to
    ✅ test specific code paths that would not be exercised when binding to a
    ✅ wildcard port. These are listed in tests/testutil.hpp so that distributions
    can easily patch them if they wish to and so that they can be unique across
    ✅ all the tests, allowing parallel runs.
    ✅ The IPC unit tests have been changed as well to use unique socket file names
    ✅ per test, where before there were some clashes.

    November 04, 2016

    🚀 0MQ version 4.2.0 stable, released on 2016/11/04

    For Pieter. Thanks for making all of this possible.

    "Tell them I was a writer.
    A maker of software.
    A humanist. A father.
    And many things.
    But above all, a writer.
    Thank You. :)"

    - Pieter Hintjens

    🚀 This release introduces new APIs, but it is ABI compatible with
    libzmq 4.1.2 and up.

    Note for ARM and SPARC users: an alignment problem in zmq_msg_t that could in
    some cases and on some CPUs cause a SIGBUS error was solved, but it requires
    a rebuild of your application against the 4.2.0 version of include/zmq.h.
    To clarify, this change does not affect the internals of the library but only
    the public definition of zmq_msg_t, so there is no ABI incompatibility.

    🔒 Security with Curve is now available by default thanks to Tweetnacl sources:
    🏗 Libsodium is still fully supported but has to be enabled with the build flag
    📦 --with-libsodium. Distribution and package maintainers are encouraged to use
    🔒 libsodium so that the security implementation can be audited and maintained

    🆕 New Context options:


    See doc/zmq_ctx_set.txt and doc/zmq_ctx_get.txt for details.

    🆕 New Socket options:

    • ZMQ_USE_FD

    See doc/zmq_setsockopt.txt and doc/zmq_getsockopt.txt for details.

    🆕 New CURVE helper function to derive z85 public key from secret key:

    🆕 New cross-platform atomic counter helper functions:
    zmq_atomic_counter_new, zmq_atomic_counter_set, zmq_atomic_counter_inc,
    zmq_atomic_counter_dec, zmq_atomic_counter_value, zmq_atomic_counter_destroy
    See doc/zmq_atomic_*.txt for details.

    🆕 New DRAFT APIs early-release mechanism. New APIs will be introduced early
    🚀 in public releases, and until they are stabilized and guaranteed not to
    🔄 change anymore they will be unavailable unless the new build flag
    --enable-drafts is used. This will allow developers and early adopters to
    ✅ test new APIs before they are finalized.
    NOTE: as the name implies, NO GUARANTEE is made on the stability of these APIs.
    They might change or disappear entirely. Distributions are recommended NOT to
    🏗 build with them.

    🆕 New socket types have been introduced in DRAFT state:
    All these sockets are THREAD SAFE, unlike the existing socket types. They do
    NOT support multipart messages (ZMQ_SNDMORE/ZMQ_RCVMORE).
    ZMQ_RADIO, ZMQ_DISH and ZMQ_DGRAM also support UDP as transport,
    👀 both unicast and multicast. See doc/zmq_udp.txt for more details.
    🆕 New methods to support the new socket types functionality:
    zmq_join, zmq_leave, zmq_msg_set_routing_id, zmq_msg_routing_id,
    zmq_msg_set_group, zmq_msg_group
    👀 See doc/zmq_socket.txt for more details.

    🆕 New poller mechanism and APIs have been introduced in DRAFT state:
    zmq_poller_new, zmq_poller_destroy, zmq_poller_add, zmq_poller_modify,
    zmq_poller_remove, zmq_poller_wait, zmq_poller_wait_all, zmq_poller_add_fd
    zmq_poller_modify_fd, zmq_poller_remove_fd
    and a new supporting struct typedef: zmq_poller_event_t
    👍 They support existing socket type, new thread-safe socket types and file
    descriptors (cross-platform).
    📚 Documentation will be made available in the future before these APIs are declared

    🆕 New cross-platform timers helper functions have been introduced in DRAFT state:
    zmq_timers_new, zmq_timers_destroy, zmq_timers_add, zmq_timers_cancel,
    zmq_timers_set_interval, zmq_timers_reset, zmq_timers_timeout,
    and a new supporting callback typedef: zmq_timer_fn

    🛠 Many, many bug fixes. The most important fixes are backported and captured in the
    🔊 4.1.x and 4.0.x changelogs.
