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.
