Release Notes: Out-of-band data handling has been added.
Release Notes: A bug with hash_fold() regarding incoming IPv4 and IPv6 source addresses has been fixed. The "hash" group mechanism is now working as expected.
Release Notes: Buffering has been disabled for interactive shell I/O. A new "assign" command has been added to allow changing of the host:port assignment of a channel (only if disabled). A locking bug has been fixed.
Release Notes: A new -6 option has been added to force IPv6 bind. A patch contribution has been applied to solve a problem with ftok() on Solaris.
Release Notes: Problems with setting the IPV6_V6ONLY socket option are now handled more nicely with a syslog warning message.
Release Notes: This release compiles on systems where IPV6_V6ONLY is undefined (like some Solaris systems).
Release Notes: IPv6 support on the listening side has been added. MAXCHANNELS in balance.h has been increased to 64.
Release Notes: A bug in the autodisable functionality has been fixed. The manual page has been updated.
Release Notes: A new "autodisable" option has been added (-a), so that a channel needs to be manually re-enabled after a failure. Syslog logging has been added for reporting this event. A new option -M has been added, instructing Balance to use memory mapping instead of shared memory for internal IPC. The manual page has been updated.
Release Notes: The directory /var/run/balance may now already exist (e.g. created during installation) without complaining and exiting.
