Release Notes: The FAQ was improved. AnyEvent::Strict was made optional. Compatibility with Tk was improved.
Release Notes: The major new feature in this release is the new AnyEvent::TLS module, which abstracts TLS/SSL connection parameters in a very simple way. This is hopefully also easier to understand and more rational than usual, while still providing secure defaults and essential integration into AnyEvent::Handle for e.g. peer name verification. On the backend side, there is now a somewhat limited IO::Async backend. Apart from new features, there are a large number of bugfixes to further improve the quality, such as AnyEvent::DNS not handling uppercase CNAME targets correctly.
Release Notes: This release adds an introductory tutorial. Also, many workarounds for Windows and Tk bugs have been implemented, to make AnyEvent behavior identical to Unix behavior. IPv6 support is only enabled when the OS actually supports it. BSD platforms implementing the socket structures incorrectly are now worked around. Unix domain sockets are now supported transparently. NAPTR and SRV handling has been improved. Lastly, a great many bugs and performance improvements have been applied, especially to AnyEvent::Handle and TLS support.
Release Notes: This release adds backends for Qt, POE, and Event::Lib. The pure-perl event loop is much faster, and it can now compete with (and surpass) most C-based event libraries. A fully non-blocking DNS stub resolver library was added. A Socket library that can transparently (and without blocking at all) create IPv4 and IPv6 servers and clients, takes advantage of SRV records was added. A file handle wrapper that supports structured data transfers and transparent (and non-blocking) SSL/TLS filtering was added. Lots of general improvements and bugfixes were added. Windows is officially supported.
Release Notes: The one-watcher per fd/poll limitation has been lifted by a new Tk backend that works around the many bugs in Tk. Support for the EV event loop (and the Coro::EV module) has been added, and is by far the fastest choice available for AnyEvent now. PID watchers are no longer autoreset and can be used to watch for any child exit. The documentation has been extended and clarified, and all backends now have a (simple) man page.
Release Notes: The Glib/GTK+ support is now functional again. A Perl bug that caused spurious problems when loading the module at the wrong time has been worked around.
Release Notes: Watcher types to wait for signals and processes have been added. Event model detection can now be forced. There are workarounds for bugs in various Event models. Several bugs in AnyEvent itself have been fixed.
Release Notes: The API has been streamlined (no arguments to callbacks anymore, and r and w watchers must be separate), allowing for more efficient implementations. A pure Perl event loop has been implemented as a last resort fallback when nothing better can be found, enabling AnyEvent-using modules to work when no XS or precompiled event modules are available.
Release Notes: This release features a large number of small bugfixes and documentation improvements. It also allows third-party interface implementations for event models not handled by the module itself.
