Release Notes: The LP64 ("-xarch=generic64") mode "size_t"/"socklen_t" discrepancy in "@(#)socket.h 1.74 05/08/02 SMI" on "SunOS 5.10 Generic_118822-25 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-Enterprise-10000" with "Sun C 5.8 2005/10/13" has been worked around by using "msghdr.msg_namelen" (instead of manually typed variables) for address lengths.
Release Notes: The package has been ported to Cygwin 1.5.19-4. Some messages are more user friendly now. Several small portability and documentation related fixes have been applied against bugs which likely manifested nowhere. The multi-threaded program "bigpipe" has been added for Unix98 platforms and Unix95 platforms with Posix Threads. It promotes asynchronicity among members of a pipeline. It helps in advancing through regular files on NFS-, SMB-, or USB-mounted devices. This benefits udp_copy2 directly because it requires very low latency on stdin/stdout. The version numbering has been sanitized.
Release Notes: This release fixes a typo in the timer design text and makes the build system more portable.
Release Notes: This release eliminates a race where a cunningly scheduled "SIGSTOP, let time pass, SIGCONT" triple would result in a timeout instead of restarting the timer. (Hitting the window should be fairly unlikely even without this fix.)
Release Notes: This release added OpenVMS support and was tested with Compaq C V6.2-003 on OpenVMS Alpha V7.3-2.
Release Notes: This minuscule release eliminates a superfluous check in udp_recv2 and clarifies a comment.
Release Notes: This release fixes some comments (explanations and typos).
