  • ActivePerl 5.8.0 is supported.
  • Gentoo Linux is supported. Previously Perl would segfault.
  • TCP clients and servers now support different kinds of sessions (Session, NFA, and custom types).
  • TCP servers now gracefully handle aborted connections. This prevents them from stopping under heavy load.
  • TCP clients and servers are more configurable in general.
  • Several unimplemented features in Wheel::Run have been completed.
  • POE::Kernel's call() honors array vs. scalar context now.
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes prevented POE::Kernel from returning.
  • Fixed a leak in signal dispatching. Terminal signals now destroy sessions at the proper times.

POE's web site contains detailed changes for every public release.

The latest tarball should be heading towards your favorite CPAN mirror. It is also on the web, and so is a Windows PPD. Users who need advanced notice of changes can follow it via anonymous CVS or POE's mailing list.

Thanks again to everyone who helped with this release.
