JOSE (JSON Object Signing and Encryption)
Some low-level API support has been added to the Crypto and Web modules to support parts of RFC 7515 - 7520.
The machine code generator on ia32 now aligns the stack on a 16 byte boundary. This makes it possible to call code that uses SSE2 instructions.
Exceptions thrown in GTK signal handlers no longer cause segfaults.
The SSL client code now interprets the RFCs more leniently to address some interoperability issues.
Fixed bugs in cipher selection that prevented null-ciphers from being negotiated by the SSL server (if allowed by the Context object).
Multiple fixes for the handling of accelerated Filesystem.Monitor monitors, which could sometimes lose notifications.
Improved handling of response content-length in Protocols.HTTP.Query.
Fixed case where unfinished programs could lose their parents.
Fixed “Invalid service”-error from connect() on Fedora Core 4.
Fixed next_result() in Sql.sql_array_result.
Fixed sizeof() in Array.Iterator, Multiset.Iterator and String.Iterator.
- Reduced the memory requirements of Tools.Shoot (pike -x benchmark)
