Pike 8.0.498 Release notes
Added get_point() to Crypto.ECC.Curve.
Crypto.ECC.Curve.Point objects can now be compared with equal().
Added jwk() to signatures (Nettle.Sign, Crypo.RSA, Crypto.ECC.Curve.ECDSA)
Added jwk() to Crypto.Hash.HMAC.
decode_jwk() on a ECC private key now returns an ECDSA object (and a Point object for an ECC public key).
Support for decoding PKCS #10 public keys through Standard.PKCS.parse_public_key.
Added hooks for controlling error handling in Protocols.DNS.server.
Fixed a memory leak in the HTTP header parser upon receiving malformed HTTP headers.
Fixed a case where the onopen callback would get the wrong argument.
Fixes some broken SQL queries causing data corruption.
list_fields() now throws an error when used on a non-existent table.
Some methods (add_int*, input_from, add_padding) did not trigger a call to the fd output function. When using an Stdio.Buffer instance in Stdio.File buffer mode, this could result in new data not being written.
Due to an error in the realloc strategy, in some cases unread() did not succeed after reading or writing data to a fd.
Fixed a race condition when creating a new thread while threads are disabled.
Fixed issues with merging of empty sets.
Fixed rank calculation on intersection of sets.
Fixed multiple memory leaks.
Improved behavior when provided with corrupted input.
The module is now tested by the normal testsuite.
Improved syntax error recovery, including eliminating some fatal conditions.
Fixed a memory leak in the preprocessor.
Fixed NULL-dereference by the GC when running count_memory() on a Pike compiled with –with-dmalloc.
Fixed fatal “Didn’t find gc marker as expected” at exit on a Pike compiled with –with-cleanup-on-exit.
Fixed an error where processes would share the same queue for pending signals after using fork(). As a result, a signal sent to one process could trigger a signal handler in the other process.
Building & Tools
Fixes to the detection of MariaDB, MySQL and Inotify.
Fixed issue where the error code from extra platform tests wasn’t propagated all the way to exit from the install script.
