Fedora 9 Update: libev-3.49-1.fc9



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2008-10683
2008-12-02 23:57:49
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : libev
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 3.49
Release     : 1.fc9
URL         : http://software.schmorp.de/pkg/libev.html
Summary     : High-performance event loop/event model with lots of features
Description :
Libev is modelled (very losely) after libevent and the Event perl
module, but is faster, scales better and is more correct, and also more
featureful. And also smaller.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

The only major change is that inotify is now used even on older, known to be
buggy, kernels, but only as a hint. Also, libev now has a small list of "known
to be good" filesystems where inotify is known to work, and will use inotify as
a hint only on other filesystems (such as NFS). The documentation has been
updated regarding the dangers of using stat watchers on networked file systems.
3.49 Wed Nov 19 11:26:53 CET 2008          - ev_stat watchers will now use
inotify as a mere hint on            kernels <2.6.25, or if the filesystem is
not in the            "known to be good" list.          - better mingw32
compatibility (it's not as borked as native win32)            (analysed by Roger
Pack).          - include stdio.h in the example program, as too many people are
confused by the weird C language otherwise. I guess the next thing            I
get told is that the "..." ellipses in the examples don't compile
with their C compiler.
