Pike 8.0.182 Release notes
Changes since Pike 8.0.164 (release 1)
It is now possible to run the gc in a quick mode to just cut weak references from a specific container.
The Element class lost track of its position when remove() was used.
Improved thread safety and robustness
The new driver in 8.0 suffered from filedescriptor leaks if the database connections were not explicitly close()d. Fixes have been applied which eliminate the filedescriptor leak and also ensure that the filedescriptors are closed the instant the object loses all references.
The runtime now attempts to wait for any compilations in progress to complete before complaining about cloning of unfinished programs. This fixes a race-condition when the same program is compiled from different threads.
Fixed multiple potential NULL-dereferences.
Fixed breaking of circular references when the peer terminates the connection.
Support the userinfo field containing ’@’.
The second argument to set_buffer() should now work.
Updated the SHA3_* testvectors to FIPS 202.
